Safecast Report 2017, Part 1 now available

Part 1 of the Safecast Report 2017 is now available for download as a print-quality PDF. The report has grown in size, and in contrast with previous years, we are making it available in sections for easier download and reading. A combined version will also be available. Section 2: Situation Report – Intro and 2.1- Issues at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Powerplant (FDNPP) will be available shortly, followed by sections on evacuees, the environment, food, and health.

Part 1: The Safecast Project Update, describes our activities, initiatives, milestones, new hardware and software, and everything else we’ve been up to through August 2017.  As before, it is a stand-alone document which includes some basic information about Safecast found in earlier editions of the report. We’re thrilled about the new cover design by Jory Felice, too. 

UPDATE: We’ve added a direct download link:
