Electron paramagnetic resonance dosimetry and the use of Japanese wild boar tooth enamel as a dosimeter for reconstruction of lifetime external absorbed doses from the Fukushima Exclusion Zone
The goal of this study was to establish characteristics of Japanese wild boar tooth enamel in the region of 0.25 – 12.0 Gy and to reconstruct external doses to wild boar native to the Fukushima Exclusion Zone using Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Dosimetry. The significance of Japanese wild boar in their ecosystem and their position within the trophic hierarchy make the wild boar a species of particular importance and therefore the focus of this study. Dose response, linearity, and variability of enamel originating from various wild boar were investigated. Radiation dose response of Japanese ...
