Fukushima Japan Earthquake: nuclear plants Fukushima part 2

Very impressive performance by TEPCO. They are eating the elephant, one spoonful at a time, as laid out in their longer term plans..
Presumably a similar approach will be implemented later on units 1 and 2. Once that is done, the actual site fuel removal and cleanup can begin.

I posted about some open-access reports in the thread on Fukushima discussions.

However, there are two important technical books on the accident progression and report by AESJ. They are not open-access, but must be purchased, but are probably worth the money for serious technical analysis.
