Publication of New Atomic Bomb Radiation Dosimetry System

February 27, 2006

Due to recent advances in computer technology, DS02 allows more complicated and detailed calculations than DS86 did, as well as detailed simulations of the atomic bomb explosions and of the radiation’s release and dispersal. Many improvements have been made, including dose estimates, with consideration paid to the more detailed shielding conditions of individual survivors, which has resulted in greatly improved accuracy of the radiation dose estimates.
