RERF Glossary

Proximally exposed

This term originally referred to persons exposed to the atomic bombings within 2,000 meters of the hypocenters. However, more recent RERF publications use the term to refer to survivors who have estimated doses of 0.005 Gy or above, which approximately corresponds to persons exposed within 2,500 meters of the hypocenter in Hiroshima and 2,700 meters in Nagasaki.
