TITLEChernobyl Nuclear Accident Documents
DATE ACCESSED16 September 2017

This website allows the user to purchase and download over 4000 pages of documents on the Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine, dating from 1971 into the early 2000s. The documents are from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the U.S. government's foreign press monitoring program, the Departments of Energy and Defense (DOE, DOD), and other U.S. government agencies. The main page presents a summary of the accident, its human and environmental impacts, and efforts to remediate the reactor site and its surroundings. Further down the page, short descriptions of available documents are listed, organized under headings named according to the authoring agencies. An additional link provides translations of events related to Chernobyl from foreign newspapers, books and journals, as supplied by the Joint Publications Research Service (JPRS). Each section provides access to numerous documents, available as PDFs, related to all aspects of the disaster. Although most documents relate directly to Chernobyl and its impacts, some cover other aspects of the Soviet nuclear program, including the lesser-known Kyshtym accident in 1957. The site is a vast information resource for researchers and others seeking detailed, factual information on many aspects of the Chernobyl disaster. The archives are part of BACM Research's Paperless Archives project, and it is easy from the main Chernobyl page to stray into archives covering completely different subjects.
