Accumulated dose rate = summation of hourly averages of absorbed dose rate Accumulation period: 13.3.2011 up to today 

❚ ❚  ❚Accumulation of original data Missing values: ❚Accumulation of interpolated data:
Missing values are approximated since original data of average absorbed dose rate is not available for every hour. Missing data points are computed by linear interpolation.
∅Missing data at the beginning of the period:
Missing values at the beginning of the accumulation period (13.3.) will be set to 0.
All data taken into account in the accumulation is shown in the graph â€˜interpolated raw dataâ€™ (top left button above the graph).
In those cases the calculated accumulation values show below the actual accumulation values. Regarding the assessment of the timeline: Radiation releases during the initial hydrogen explosions. 
The red graph shows the accumulation of 0,114 Î¼Gy/h based on an estimated average for Japan of 1000 Î¼Gy per year (equates 0,114 Î¼Gy/h *24 hours * 365 days). The accumulation starts with the first available value of the data set after 13.3.2011 (see missing values above).  
The green graph shows the accumulation of V_{max}. The accumulation starts with the first available value of the data set after 13.3.2011 (see missing values above).
