Sanada, Yukihisa  ; Sugita, Takeshi; Nishizawa, Yukiyasu; Kondo, Atsuya*; Torii, Tatsuo

The ambient dose-rate and the deposition concentration of radioactive cesium was measured by using helicopters in the whole area of Japan to investigate the influence of the radioactivity that released in the atmosphere due to the disaster of the Fukushima Daiichi NPP (Nuclear Power Plant), Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), occurred by the East Japan earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. As a result, the deposition of radioactive cesium on the ground discharged from the Fukushima Daiichi NPP was obtained, and it was clarified that the scattered range of the cesium had been almost limited from the southern part of Tohoku to Kanto areas. The variation distribution of the dose-rate of Japan was also revealed in this measurement.
