- This site contains a Department of Energy (DOE)
database with technical information about nuclear plants around the world.
There is also information on reactor materials and links to other DOE
- The NRC site provides useful information about
facilities in the United States including descriptions and drawings of plant
systems. The NRC also maintains a public document room which provides
information about licensing actions for the U.S. power plants. Information is
provided about nuclear safety questions. You can also obtain information about
nuclear plant performance on a daily basis from the various listservers
provided by the NRC.
- NEI is the nuclear energy industry's
Washington-based policy organization. NEI provides very useful information in
5 areas - basics, benefits, nuclear safety, uses of nuclear energy, press releases, fact sheets, special reports, Insight monthly
newsletter, other links
- The American Nuclear Society is the nuclear
engineering and industry professional organization. The ANS sponsors seminars
throughout the year on a variety of nuclear-related topics. A number of the
student university branches stronglt support nuclear public education efforts
on the Web.
- For information about using nuclear fission for
other applications, be sure to visit this site. Mr. Adams has provided a very
good background source.
- The Electric Power Research Institute delivers
the science and technology to make the generation, delivery, and use of
electricity affordable, efficient, and environmentally sound. Created by U.S
electric utilities in 1973, EPRI is one of America's oldest and largest
- Micro-Simulation Technology started in 1985.
This company has specialized in developing PC-based software that simulates
the performance of nuclear power plants. The software is used for education
and research, engineering analysis, probablistic safety assessment and
emergency planning in seventeen countries.
- The University of Wisconsin, a premier education institution in nuclear
research, to developed this on-line curriculum to provide accurate information
about the effects of radiation.
- Dr. John McCarthy of Stanford has provided these very good summaries on a
number of the major questions and concerns that arise regarding nuclear
- This site, maintained by the University of
Michigan Student Chapter of the Health Physics Society,
contains an excellent set of links to anything you would want to know about
radiation and health physics - studies, regulations, risk, professional
organizations, articles, photos.
- UC Berkeley was one of the original
educational institutions conducting research in nuclear science. The
University's Nuclear Engineering department
has links to other nuclear engineering departments around the world
