Saito, Kimiaki ; Yamamoto, Hideaki

This article aims to provide the basic meanings and features of the doses frequently used in the measurements and evaluations of environmental radiation due to the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. The following doses are explained and compared: absorbed dose as basic physical quantity; effective dose and equivalent dose for judgment in radiation protection; and ambient dose equivalent $$H^{*}$$(10) and individual dose equivalent $$H$$p(10) for radiation measurements.
