Environmental radiation monitoring in Fukushima, 6; External dose evaluation based on monitored air dose rate

Just after the accident, the Japanese government had been applied a simple model (supposing spending 8 hours outdoors and 16 hours indoors, using dose reduction factor (0.4) of indoor ambient air dose rate, and estimation based on integrated ambient dose equivalent). In 2013, the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) showed that individual exposure dose is important as practical value to control exposure when residents return into the zone of which evacuation order is lifted. Using personal dosimeter is common method for measuring individual exposure dose however there are some difficulties. For example, personal dosimeter measurement can't be applied in the area restricted to enter, or it's a burden to wear personal dosimeter always. Therefore, semi-theoretical models, which can evaluate individual exposure easily based on measured air dose rate, have been developed. This study shows these methods to evaluate external exposure dose (i.e. governmental simple model, personal dosimeter, and semi-theoretical model) and quantitative relationship among those methods.
