PHITS Monte Carlo models were used to assess factors affecting ambient dose equivalent rates (H*(10)) in forests in Fukushima Prefecture. Three models were developed with different levels of detail to understand how the distribution of radioactive cesium within forests, shielding by trees and soil composition affect H*(10). The models were parametrized using measurements from deciduous and coniferous forests in Fukushima Prefecture.
