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.
