眞田 幸尚; 吉村 和也; 卜部 嘉*; 岩井 毅行*; Katengeza, E. W.*

Journal of Environmental Radioactivity, 223-224, p.106397_1 - 106397_9, 2020/11

The information on the absorbed dose rate which is derived from natural radionuclides needs to evaluate additional exposure dose around Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. However, there are not enough position resolution and precision for data for this evaluation. In this study, we created the map of the absorbed dose rate which is derived from natural radionuclides based on several airborne radiation monitoring data. The created map was made sure to have sufficient reliable accuracy by comparing with the many in-situ measurement on the ground. These data were applied to discriminate the absorbed dose rate of background from an actual periodic dose rate survey results as an application study. Evaluation results for the distribution of absorbed dose rate of background are expected to contribute to the summarization of international studies of the FDNPS accident.

In Japan, the possibility to change the current dose limit of the lens of the eye for the radiation workers working in the planned exposure situation (normal controlled situations) to a new ICRP dose limit was discussed. It was further discussed how to appropriately monitor and manage the equivalent dose of the eye lenses for these workers exposed to radiation at their workplaces, such as nuclear and medical facilities. Among the workers exposed to a high-dose radiation at the water storage flange tank deconstructed $$^{90}$$Sr/$$^{90}$$Y dominant areas and the nuclear reactor buildings (high dose gamma-ray) of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (1F-NPP), H$$_{p}$$(10), H$$_{p}$$(3), and H$$_{p}$$(0.07) at the head and the chest (or the upper arm) were estimated by passive personal dosimeters using thermoluminescence dosimeters (TLDs) and radio photoluminescence glass dosimeters (RPLGDs). The relationship between H$$_{p}$$(10), H$$_{p}$$(3), and H$$_{p}$$(0.07) along with the effects of the sites of wearing dosimeters on the head inside a full-face mask and the chest (or upper arm) were discussed.

This study provides new insights regarding to the long-term temporal change and the mass balance of dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs in an artificial reservoir affected by the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. Time-series water samples were collected from 2014 to 2019 for $$^{137}$$Cs concentration measurements in and around Ogaki Dam Reservoir in which the catchment has a high $$^{137}$$Cs inventory. We revealed that the arithmetic mean of dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs concentration was significantly higher in the output water than in the main input water, and the effective ecological half-live of dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs of the output water was longer than that in the main input water. Remarkably, it is considered that the output dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs was significantly larger than the total input dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs. Reservoir sediments containing high $$^{137}$$Cs activity may become even more important in the future as sources of bioavailable dissolved $$^{137}$$Cs.

The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (FDNPS), operated by Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc., experienced a meltdown as a result of a large tsunami caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. At that time, it was necessary to understand the aspects of the decommissioning working environment inside the FDNPS, such as establishing how the radioactive substances were distributed across the site, for work to be done efficiently without exposure to large amounts of radiation. Therefore, virtual reality (VR) emerged as a solution. There have been previous reports done on a technique for visualizing the distribution of radioactive substances in three dimensions utilizing a freely moving gamma-ray imager combined with simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technology. In this paper, we introduce imaging technologies for the acquisition of image data from radioactive substances and three-dimensional (3D) structural models of the working environment, using a freely moving gamma-ray imager combined with SLAM technology. For this research, we also constructed a VR system and displayed the 3D data in a VR space, which enables users to experience the actual working environment without radiation exposure. In creating the VR system, any user can implement this method by donning an inexpensive head-mounted display apparatus and using a free, or low-cost, application software.

Radiocesium that originated from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident was deposited on the ground surface and has been transported via fluvial discharge, primarily in the form of particulates, to downstream areas and eventually to the ocean. During transportation, some of the radiocesium accumulated on the riverbed. In this study, we quantified the radiocesium deposition on the riverbed in the Odaka River estuary and investigated the radiocesium sedimentation process of the river bottom. Our results show that the radiocesium inventory in the seawater intrusion area is larger than those in the freshwater and marine parts of the estuary. Moreover, the particle-size distribution in the seawater intrusion area shows a high proportion of silt and clay particles compared with the distribution in other areas. The increased radiocesium inventory in this area is attributed to the sedimentation of fine particles caused by hydrodynamic factors (negligible velocity of the river flow) rather than flocculation factor by salinity variation.

Our work focused on the passive gamma-ray analysis (PGA) of the nuclear fuel debris based on measuring gamma rays with an energy greater than 1 MeV for the decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (FDNPS). The PGA requires gamma-ray spectrometers to be used under the high dose rates in the FDNPS, then we fabricated a small cubic CeBr$$_{3}$$ spectrometer with dimensions of 5 mm $$times$$ 5 mm $$times$$ 5 mm, coupled to a Hamamatsu R7600U-200 photomultiplier tube (PMT). The performance at dose rates of 4.4 to 750 mSv/h in a $$^{60}$$Co field was investigated. The energy resolution (FWHM) at 1333 keV ranged from 3.79% to 4.01%, with a standard deviation of 6.9%, which met the narrow gamma decay spectral lines between $$^{154}$$Eu (1274 keV) and $$^{60}$$Co (1333 keV). However, the spectra shifted to a higher energy level as the dose rate increase, there was a 51% increase at the dose rates of 4.4 to 750 mSv/h, which was caused by the PMT gain increase.


Project IPAD; A Database to catalogue the analysis of Fukushima Daiichi accident fragmental release material

The 2011 accident at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant released a considerable inventory of radioactive material into the local and global environments. While the vast majority of this contamination was in the form of gaseous and aerosol species, of which a large component was distributed out over the neighbouring Pacific Ocean (where is was subsequently deposited), a substantial portion of the radioactive release was in particulate form and was deposited across Fukushima Prefecture. To provide an underpinning understanding of the dynamics of this catastrophic accident, alongside assisting in the off-site remediation and eventual reactor decommissioning activities, the "International Particle Analysis Database", or "IPAD", was established to serve as an interactive repository for the continually expanding analysis dataset of the sub-mm ejecta particulate. In addition to a fully interrogatable database of analysis results for registered users (exploiting multiple search methods), the database also comprises an open-access front-end for members of the public to engage with the multi-national analysis activities by exploring a streamlined version of the data.

Plastic scintillation fibers (PSF) have been instrumental to in-situ surface surveys of radiocesium distribution post Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. Their deployment to monitoring bottom sediments in aquatic environments provides the spatial extent of radiocesium distribution over wide areas compared to discrete points as provided traditionally by sediment sampling. This study monitored five ponds in Fukushima using PSF between 2013 and 2018 and estimated ecological half-life of radiocesium in those ponds. A forest-catchment pond had a relatively long ecological half-life, while the other ponds showed shorter half-lives. The longer half-lives draw attention to possible catchment-derived radiocesium inputs, which for the forest-pond was partly evident from spatial-temporal trends of PSF-based radiation maps.

The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (FDNPS) suffered a meltdown as a result of a large tsunami triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. Understanding the distribution of radioactive substances inside the FDNPS is essential to execute appropriate decommissioning tasks. In this paper, we propose method for visualizing three-dimensional (3D) images of radioactive substances as a point cloud data (PCD) and integrating these data into 3D environment models. To demonstrate the usefulness of the proposed methods, a Compton camera was first employed to capture 3D images of radiation sources. The resulting PCD were then integrated into a 3D environment model of a measurement area acquired using the 3D light detection and ranging (LiDAR). This allowed in successful construction of a map to visually recognize the positions of radiation sources.

The authors have requested the retraction of their article due to an identified defect in the Compton camera software, which resulted in an incorrect output value for the interaction position of the gamma rays in the sensor of the camera. It is expected that the experimental results may not change significantly with the bug correction; however, many figures would need to be replaced. The authors may seek a separate publication of an updated manuscript in the future.
