Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus;4/18/2011, Issue 15, p6
The article presents assessments of Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear crisis from "Science" and "Nature" journals. It mentions that the article "Scientific Consensus on Great Quake Came Too Late," by Dennis Normile in the April 1, 2011 issue of "Science" blamed Japanese safety monitoring agencies for the slow-paced incorporation of scientific research into their projections. The article also states that the article "A Long Shadow over Fukushima," by Jim Smith in the April 5, 2011 issue of "Nature" predicted that the environmental damage will be severe.
