TH21  Are We Observing More Extreme Weather Events that Affect the Risk of Nuclear Power Plants?

This session will provide a forum to facilitate discussion on whether extreme weather events are affecting commercial nuclear power plants and, if so, the potential risk implications of those events. The presentations will explore what existing data are (or are not) telling us about how weather patterns are changing and any observed effects on the operation of nuclear power plants.
