COD Health and Sciences Colloquium: 'DOE Response to the Radioactive Materials Released at the Fukushimi Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in November 2011'
The College of DuPage Health and Sciences Colloquium Series will host E. Frank Moore, Ph.D., RAP Region 5 Senior Scientist/Equipment Coordinator at Argonne National Laboratory, during a free session on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 3:30 p.m. in HSC 1234.
Dr. Moore was part of a team of Department of Energy experts sent to Japan after a magnitude 9 earthquake on March 11, 2011, resulted in a major loss-of-coolant accident and large quantities of radioactive materials released into the environment from the Fukushimi Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
The White House Department of Energy team consisted of personnel and equipment from DOE-NNSA, HQ, the remote Sensing Laboratories in Las Vegas and Washington, D.C., and several of the RAP Regions, including Dr. Moore and three other members from Argonne National Laboratory.
Dr. Moore will provide a brief overview of the accident and description of the DOE assets and capabilities called upon to respond. He wil also offer insights on firsthand experiences of radiological monitoring and results from this incident.
Dr. Moore has more than twenty years of experience working in nuclear physics and health physics positions. Dr. Moore has more than 80 publications in nuclear physics research journals and has considerable expertise in radiation detectors and analysis of nuclear data. He serves as Team Captain and Senior Scientist for RAP emergency response deployments and
exercises, including the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Accident. Dr. Moore has also made several monitoring trips to sites in the Russian Federation in support of the NNSA Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) Transparency Program.
Dr. Moore received his Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics from Florida State University in 1988 and became a Certified Health Physicist in 2000.
