The Chernobyl/Chornobyl Disaster: Presenting the New MAPA Project

Kostyantyn Bondarenko, Nataliia Levchuk, Serhii Plokhii
April 28, 2021 | 12-1:30pm

The latest contribution to MAPA: Digital Atlas of Ukraine examines the impact of the Chernobyl/Chornobyl nuclear disaster on human life and society. An integrated geography project at the crossroads of human and ecological geography, this endeavor partners with groups in Ukraine, including the National Research Center for Radiation Medicine at the National Academy of Medical Sciences and National Cancer Registry of Ukraine. 

During this event, panelists will share the first results of their work, including the organization of the website, the resettlement of the population from the Chornobyl exclusion zone, and the impact of the disaster on the migration patterns and other demographic processes in Ukraine.
