開発した森林を考慮したPHITSを用いて、森林内放射性Cs動態を考慮した空間線量率計算を実施した。その結果、2015年10月時点の観測データを用いると、樹木に放射性Csがほとんど存在しないため、樹冠からリター層へ移行してもほとんど地上1m空間線量率は変化しなかった。一方、2011年8-9月時点の放射性Cs濃度を用いると、樹冠に放射性Csが多く存在し、樹冠近傍や地上200m程度まで空間線量率が高い傾向が見られ、樹冠からリター層へ移行すると、地上1m高さの空間線量率は、線源からの距離が近くなったことにより3倍程度大きくなった。いずれの入力データにおいても、樹冠から土壌層へ放射性Csが移行することで、土壌の遮蔽効果により地上1m高さの空間線量率は3分の1から2分の1程度減少した。

We simulated air dose rates using PHITS to consider how the partitioning of radiocesium between the forest canopy, litter layer and soil layer affected air dose rates by perturbing the radiocesium source distribution between different simulations. Transferring radiocesium from the canopy to the litter layer did not affect air dose rates at 1 m above the ground when setting up the simulation with a radiocesium distribution measured in October 2015. This is because there was almost no radiocesium in the canopy at that time. However air dose rates tended to be high near the canopy, and above the canopy up to 200 m altitude, when the simulations were initiated using source distribution data applicable for August-September 2011, due to the larger amount of radiocesium in the canopy at that time. Transferring the radiocesium from the canopy to the litter layer in this case was associated with a three times increase in the air dose rate at 1 m, as the average distance between radiocesium in the forest and 1 m above the ground was shortened. In both cases radiocesium transfer from the litter layer to the underlying soil was associated with a one third to 50% reduction in air dose rates at 1 m, due to the self-shielding effect of soil.
