INVESTIGATION OF EXTERNAL RADIATION DOSES DURING RESIDENTS' TEMPORAL STAY TO NAMIE TOWN, FUKUSHIMA PREFECTURE.

Abstract

Namie Town in Fukushima Prefecture, the majority of which was an evacuation area as a result of the effects of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, carried out a 'temporal stay' in September 2016 so that residents could check their houses. Therefore, in cooperation with the town authorities, the authors distributed personal dosemeters and behaviour record forms to record the personal dose equivalent rate and investigate the relationship between residents' external radiation dose and their behaviour. When the personal dose equivalent rate was calculated from the measured personal dose equivalent per hour, the median was 0.12 μSv h-1, the maximum value and the minimum value were 0.58 and 0.06 μSv h-1, respectively. Meanwhile, since personal fluctuations were observed in personal dose equivalent, grasping the relationship between residents' behaviour and exposed dose can be applied to risk communication.
