Late afternoon on Monday, March 14, 2011, the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration deployed 33 people and more than 17,200 pounds of equipment – including Consequence Management Response Teams and NNSA Aerial Measuring Systems – to Japan in response to the recent earthquake and tsunami.

As reported here, NNSA is using supercomputers at LLNL and other locations to produce predictive models of radiation doses, exposure, hazard areas, and meteorological conditions as the situation in Japan develops. See the full photo gallery.
