The International Atomic Energy Agency and the Japanese government plan to set up a long-term research base in Fukushima to study ways to decontaminate radiation-tainted areas and dispose of radioactive waste, government sources said Saturday.

Because of the massive fallout unleashed by Fukushima No. 1 core meltdowns following last year’s massive earthquake and tsunami, vast areas of Fukushima Prefecture remain under evacuation. As of the beginning of the month, some 110,000 people were banned from their homes.

Through the multiyear project, the government aims to conduct field research it hopes will allow residents to return to the hot zone as soon as possible without endangering their health.
