P3_3 Radiation Study around nuclear plant in Fukushima

Michael Perry, John Bettles, Nathan Pilkington, Iain Clarke



This paper investigates possible health effects of the recent Fukushima nuclear emergency. We look at the dose rates at Onami, 62km away from the facility, and the adverse effects it could potentially have upon its residents over the following year. From an absorbed dose of 9.1μSv hr-1 it was calculated that 79.7mSv yr-1 would be the effective dose with a 0.3985% chance of getting cancer from the incident, with a low chance of permanent effects.
