ABSTRACT
Huge amounts of radionuclides were released into the atmosphere and ocean from the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP), operated by the Tokyo Electric Power Company, as a result of the reactor accident after the magnitude 9.0 Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent gigantic tsunami on March 11, 2011. Here, a brief overview of the FDNPP accident was made, together with the total amounts of released radionuclides, mainly Cs, I, Sr and transuranic nuclides (Pu, Am and Cm).
