Evidence to prove that small modular reactors can self-contain radioactive materials and prevent them from release if an accident occurs
This study shows that small modular reactors can self-contain radioactive materials and prevent them from escaping into the environment. The implication of this is that in the unlikely event of an accident, all the "bad stuff" would be self-contained in the reactor.
Technical speak: In the unlikely event of an accident, radionuclide particles are contained through passive decontamination mechanisms that rely on no-active systems such as pumps.

A study to show that in the unlikely event of accidental release of radioactive particles, they would not spread beyond the vicinity of the plant.
This study looked at the potential spread of radioactive particles from a small modular and showed that the particles would generally settle close to the reactor.
