Environmental monitoring and dose estimation of residents
after the accident of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Stations
概要 / About this symposium
目的 / Purpose
This symposium will deal with the radiological influence to the public from the accident of Fukushima Daiichi NPP that occurred in March 2011. The purpose of this symposium is to bring together data on environmental radioactivity and radiation dose for residents, discuss and verify these data, and clarify the actual situation of environmental contamination and resultant radiation to residents.
We believe that the accurate estimation of radiation dose is quite essential for the healthy life and peace of mind of the residents, and we hope many researchers who are studying radiological effect of the accident will join us for these purposes.
The environmental monitoring data are essential for dose assessment for residents. However, at an early stage of the post-accident when blackout and other consequence of the disaster disabled ordinary radiation monitoring, there were scant data of radiation particularly in surrounding area of the NPP site. On the other hand, many researchers and organizations of Japan and even those of foreign countries tried to carry out radiation monitoring at their own activities. We value these individually collected monitoring data and other data or information because they are valuable for reinforcing the accurate estimation of radiation dose to the residents. We believe that these data should be widely gathered, reviewed, and published; and this is the purpose of the symposium.
