Abstract:

Department of Defense affiliated individuals were potentially exposed to radioactive materials as a result of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station radiological releases that followed the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. This report presents the findings of the probabilistic analysis for the radiation dose assessment of the DoD shore-based population. The main objective of this analysis was to assess whether the doses calculated using deterministic methods as reported in DTRA-TR-12-001 Radiation Dose Assessments for Shore-Based Individuals in Operation Tomodachi Cassata et al., 2012 met the goal of being sufficiently conservative to apply to all or nearly all shore-based individuals.
