Radiological Incidents and Dirty Bombs: Overview
Newrisk Limited is available to advise organisations and governments on radiological incidents and dirty bombs.
Newrisk Limited and its principal adviser, Dr Leivesley, have previous experience in advising organisations and governments on radiological incidents and the threat of contamination arising as a result of a dirty bomb. Dr Leivesley trained as a Scientific Adviser with the Home Office and undertook further studies in Advanced Radiobiology for this work.
Since 2011, Dr Leivesley has undertaken extensive research on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident (arising as a result of the earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011). Extensive research into the daily risks to the affected region and to Tokyo from the release of radiation from the nuclear power plant accident has provided a basis for analysis of the potential effects of radiation from dirty bombs on major cities with important international financial roles. Papers will be forthcoming (throughout 2012) on the Fukushima effect and the lessons for the protection of populations, halting secondary radiation contamination of the environment and critical infrastructure as well as recovery from future severe nuclear incidents that may arise from terrorist acts or international conflicts.
