Keywords:Fukushima Accident, Tsunami, Prediction, Countermeasure

Based on the approach for failure or accident study, the following two questions were investigated for the Fukushima accident. (1) Was the huge tsunami, induced by a huge earthquake, predictable at Fukushima-1 site? (2) If it was predictable, what preparations at Fukushima-1 could have reduced the severity of the accident? These questions were discussed within the study group, and its final report is described here.
