What do the various measure-units used in news-updates mean? How do they relate to each other? ex: measures of Sievert/year, milliSievert/hour, microSievert/hour are used throughout-- sometimes the per/time identifier is missing. can one apply simple math to convert from one to the other? how do they relate to other measures such as nGy/h?

News provided by official media in Japan is apparently still short on factual/objective/integral information needed for guidance and acting decisively. The INSTITUTE OF INFORMATION DESIGN JAPAN is looking for people who can explain a number of questions preferrably in a visual, concise form. So if you're an INFORMATION DESIGNER or know any, join the cause, get in touch (email, Twitter, Facebook, Yammer, LinkedIn), ask for additional data & info! We'll try to feed you with the data/information you need. [Original press release]
