Description (excerpt):

This report offers some comments on the Fukushima accident and the offsite  responses to it. The Fukushima accident is unique in that it presents an opportunity  to appreciably advance the state of knowledge of severe nuclear accidents. There  has never been three similar nuclear power plants at the same site undergoing simultaneous core melt events caused by the same initiating event. This permits meaningful comparisons.
