In this study, we developed a simulation code named SIBYL, which estimates external gamma-ray doses at ground level from radionuclides distributed nonuniformly in atmosphere and on ground. SIBYL can combine with the local-scale atmospheric dispersion model LOHDIM-LES, and calculate the dose distributions according to the map of the activity concentrations simulated by LOHDIM-LES. To apply the SIBYL code to emergency responses of nuclear accidents, the time-consuming three-dimensional radiation transport simulations were performed in advance using the general-purpose Monte Carlo code PHITS, and then the results were compiled to the database for the SIBYL's dose calculations. Moreover, SIBYL can consider the dose attenuation by obstacles and the changes of terrain elevations. To examine the accuracy of SIBYL, typical five cases including $$^{85}$$Kr emission from a ventilation shaft and $$^{137}$$Cs dispersion inside urban area were investigated. The results of SIBYL agreed within 10% with those of PHITS at the most of target locations. Furthermore, the calculation speed was approximately 100 times faster than that of PHITS.

We developed a remote continuous air monitoring (RCAM) system. The RCAM system consisted of a personal air monitor and a robot. The personal air monitor (poCAMon, SARAD, Germany) had a 400 mm$$^{2}$$ ion-injected silicon detector and a membrane air filter with 25 mm-diameter. The personal air monitor provides the alpha energy spectra for any measurement time interval. Demonstration measurements were taken underground at the Mizunami Underground Research Laboratory (MIU) and at a poorly ventilated concrete building. The RCAM system was remotely operated and successfully measured the $$^{222}$$Rn progeny even though the relative humidity (RH) was almost 100%. In the measured alpha spectra, the peaks of $$^{218}$$Po (6.0 MeV alpha) and $$^{214}$$Po (7.7 MeV alpha) were clearly identified. Our developed monitor is promising for alpha dust monitoring in a high gamma-ray environment or contaminated areas where a worker cannot safely physically enter.

We have been developing a method for estimating radionuclide concentration distributions in the atmosphere and release amount by combining atmospheric dispersion simulations with radiation measuring. This method has high potential to improve reliability of the simulation accuracy by incorporating the obtained release amount and concentration distributions near a source point into atmospheric dispersion simulations. Because there are no real data on radionuclide concentrations, we have a plan to calculate the test data on radionuclide concentration distributions in the atmosphere by computational simulation and validate the estimation method. In this study, we report the method for calculating them used for the test data.

In the CLADS subsidy project, we are developing an estimation method of concentration distribution and release amount of radiative nuclide by reverse-analyzing images of gamma-ray emitted by radionuclide discharged into the atmosphere obtained by an Electron Tracking Compton Camera (ETCC). It improves the estimation accuracy of atmospheric dispersion to use the concentration distribution and release amount of radionuclide calculated by this method as input data to the dispersion calculation. We simulated virtual gamma-ray images and response matrices for the development and verification of reverse analysis method. We report on simulation of these virtual gamma-ray images and construction of the response matrices.
