Chiba Prefecture Tokatsu district - southern Ibaraki Prefecture in the "hot spot area" Estimation of external exposure dose and deposition of soil investigation by the citizens


Joso Co-op

Diffusion release of radioactive substances by TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident of March 11, 2011 is, radioactive
The deposited contaminated by rain scatter radioactive material to 500km distance in a plume, high-dose
I was the formation of a "hot spot" area. Mother and child is the first year in particular residents live in this area
In addition (inhalation exposure, ingestion exposure) to exposure, the dose due to high day-to-day from the soil
I'm very concerned about the health effects of exposure to future results.
Along with the citizens of your community, Joso co-op is automatically up to 2,000 locations between June-August 2011
As well as perform spatial dose study of parks and home before, to approach the children and looking for a high concentration pollution point
I've been asked by the government to deal together with no warning.
Start the soil survey, such as Ami-machi, Ibaraki Prefecture and surrounding Nagareyamaootakanomori urgently than in November last year, now
Own citizens in order to understand the first year of pollution hot spot area than in January entered the year

Than is exposure experience following Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to Chernobyl in the world, pollution of the accident the first year
To children and the measures that you can take to clarify the actual exposure to the situation, to reduce even a little exposure
It is necessary to promote and raise the region that you watch carefully to investigate the health effects of.

 And radioactive contamination of the living environment, material of objective understanding of radiation dose as a material of one of the
I want the basic data as a.

Survey Guidelines

[Collection method]
1. On that are separated by 1km mesh each municipality (selection of the sampling point), Principle 1 per within the frame
I was taken soil of the point. Selection of the sampling point is, no flow flow of rainwater height difference is small
The point of the natural state that seems the hand of man is not applied and, in the land of small plant
