F-TRACE Project (15): Tool for calculating air dose rates from arbitrary radiocesium depth profiles and spatial distributions for Fukushima Prefecture

Tool to model air dose rates from soil radiocaesium activity concentrations.

Abstract

Air dose rates across Fukushima Prefecture are determined by the spatial distribution and depth profile of radiocesium in soil. We have developed a tool to model these variables and predict dose rates. Overall the predictions correlate well with measurements from within the Prefecture. Individual predictions are on average within 50% of the measurements.
