Nuclear Glossary Japan v 1.5

Nuclear Glossary Japan v 1.5

Ratings: (0)|Views: 23|Likes:
Deciphering reports, on Nuclear Accidents in Japan, can be challenging for the Layman, due to lots of technical terminology, and reports drowning in a high density of unfamiliar acronyms. Here I try to share credible sources of information, translating geek into understandable for the layman.
I have several sister research notes documents, including: time line of the nuclear accident events; credible sources of info such as providing radiation info in perspective; lessons which should be learned; and directory of maps.

Glossary of Terminology and Acronyms to put Japan Nuclear Accidents in perspective
Introduction (1 Feb 16)
 Acronyms, Concepts, special Terminology, are defined here, in alphabetical sequence, to try to make it easy when we are reading some document from UN, or government … what theheck is that? Look it up here. This is a perpetually updated directory of acronyms and related terminology found in write-ups Japan earthquake tsunami aftershock nuclear etc. do what about it., acquired from many different sources, to help locate info again when same topicrepeats. Sometimes Al falls a bitbehind on keeping some areas current. But as Al sees new examples of “what the heck isthat?” in these documents, if not too busy, tracks down the meaning and updates thisreference collection.Collected by Alister Wm Macintyre (Al Mac), Evansville Indiana, while doing pro bonoresearch support for various volunteers who want to do something constructive.
Research notes document structure (1 Feb 16)
 Topic sub-titles end in a date signifyingwhen that infolast updated, so by viewing table of contents,we see where most recent input to these research notes, especially aiding people with copy of an earlier version.Digit 1 in front of month means 2011. Version numbers are incremented, with this document periodically uploaded various placesfor convenience of other people who can then pick and choose which of my research effortsthey wish to download.Users of my research hold Alister Wm. Macintyre harmless,and also the places I upload my research to, and agree that my copyright is reserved and that the information is available forthe intended purpose of helping in the recovery of Haiti and Japan. Some of my researchcontent is direct quotes from other sources. I try to give credit every time I do this.
 Japan notes documents (1Apr30)
Over time, I have split my Japan and related notes, and now have them in the following documents:
 Acronyms Glossary for Haiti– many of the acronyms are relevant to many disasters.I also have a Glossary of Housing and other Challenges in Haiti, and have a majorGlossary section in my notes on Economic Disaster (the train wreck variously calledGreat Recession, Financial Earthquake, Economic Melt-down, past present andfuture).
EOJ = initial naming convention for some of my Earthquake Japandocuments, todistinguish them from Haiti notes.
