This lecture will be presented by Tony Wickham at the The Princess Royal Centre for Performing Arts, Guernsey on Wednesday, 21 October and the Pomme D'Or Hotel, Jersey on Thursday, 22 October.
The Great NE Japan Earthquake and resulting tsunami of March 2011 caused massive destruction and devastated the lives of thousands but, for the international news media, it was the involvement of four nuclear power plants that grabbed the headlines. Tony Wickham (Visiting Professor at the University of Manchester) will analyse the lessons of Fukushima and previous nuclear incidents, focussing on the implications for security of electrical supplies against a background of climate change. Tony is an independent nuclear consultant with extensive involvement in the activities of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Previously he worked at the University of Manchester where he participated in the Nuclear Graphite Research Group. He has worked for 27 years at the Berkley Nuclear Laboratories, specialising in graphite irradiation behaviour and gas-cooled reactor systems.
