Summary Report of RSMC Beijing on Fukushima Nuclear Accident Emergency Response, WORLD METEOROLOGICAL ORGANIZATION (United Nations), Oct. 27, 2011:
3.3.1 Special reports about impacts on China’s atmosphere of the extremely easterly wind in the area between Japan and Northeast China
To estimate the impacts of Fukushima Nuclear Accident under the conditions that continuous easterly winds happened in Japan and China, RSMC Beijing made the simulation and analysis as below. Assumptions are supposed as follows: (1) five days of continuous easterly wind, similar as that from 23-27 Mar. in 2008; (2) Nuclear leaks occurred in Fukushima and lasted for five days. The total release amount was equal to that of Chernobyl nuclear explosion.
