This is the paragraph preceding this image:
The aerial surveys of ambient dose equivalent, described in Section 4.1.2 and Appendix I, measured levels of radioactivity over the land and over the sea. Measurements over the sea are presented in Refs [108, 109]. Figure 4.1–20 illustrates the results of one such survey showing the pattern of the ambient dose equivalent rate over the Pacific Ocean near the Fukushima Daiichi NPP in April 2011.

Figure 5D.1. An aerial measurement of the radioactivity (gross count rate response in cps) at the sea surface around the FDNPP on April 18, 2011. These data have been normalized to the count rate of a single 2 × 4 × 10 NaI crystal, and radon has been removed (Guss, 2011). Their flight altitudes were from 150 to 700 m above the ground (MEXT, 2011).
