Distribution of Ambient Dose Rates within the 80-km Zone of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS
In order to ascertain the changes in the effect of radioactive materials, the airborne monitoring survey has been conducted continuously within the 80-km zone of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)'s Fukushima Daiichi NPS, and the distribution of ambient dose rates and deposition of radioactive cesium have been surveyed. Additionally, the effect of radioactive materials outside the 80-km zone has also been ascertained through the airborne monitoring survey.
It was confirmed that ambient dose rates within the 80-km zone decreased over time both in areas showing higher dose rates (areas extending to the northwest of the NPS) and areas showing lower dose rates.
