  • 1. Fukushima Nuclear Accident
    Radiological consequences
    28 March 2011
  • 2. Gamma Dose Rates in µSv/hour15-27 March
    Natural Background: 0.1 µSv/hour
  • 3.
  • 4. Daily deposition: I-131/ Cs-137Bq/m2
  • 5. Permissible limit-Japan:
    Adult: 300 Bq/l; Children/100 Bq/l
  • 6. Permissible limit-Japan: 200 Bq/l
  • 7. On-Site 3 exposed workers medical status
    March 24
    3 workers exposed to radiation (2 with feet/legs contamination)
    NIRS Hospital
    Radiation monitoring:
    Body dosimeter: 173, 179, 180 mSv
    (Dose limit for emergency workers in life saving operation: 250 mSv)
    Medical condition
    Transient redness (suggested a dose between 2000-3000 mSv locally)
    Under medical observation for 4 days.
    Latest news:
    All 3 patients were discharged (March 28 at 12:00 Tokyo time)
    2 patients with local legs problems: Regular medical follow-up

    Measurement locations at Fukushima region
  • 9. Radiation Measurements
    Measurements at 35 locations in Fukushima and 20 in Tokyo and surrounding areas(dose rate & contamination)
    Collected sample swipes, air sampling from around most of the locations (same places, and more — for corroboration)
    Samples will provide more qualitative data and will be disseminated after analysis at Seibersdorf
  • 10. Radiation Measurements (Cont’d).
    Beta-gamma contamination measurements ranged from 0.02 to 4.9 Megabecquerel per square meter
    Dose rate between 0.05 and 59 microsieverts per hour
    Distance between 16 to 70 kilometers
    2011/3/28

  • 11. IAEA Radiation monitoring team
    March 28, 1st team
    8 locations in Tokyo region
    Gamma-dose rates: 0.08 to 0.13 µSv/hour
    Natural background: 0.1 microsivert per hour
    March, 28, 2nd team
    Radius of 30 to 46 km from the Fukushima NPP
    Dose rates from 0.5 to 3 µSv/hour
    Beta-gamma contamination: from 0.02 to 0.33 MBq/m2
  • 12. Monitoring of I-131 and Cs-137 in soilFukushima Prefecture
    Initial measurements: Spatial variability of deposition
    High depositions in some areas
    Further measurements and study are in progress
