Team members dug a hole on the south side of Shima Hospital (the hypocenter) to measure the radiation in the soil with a Neher Cosmic Ray Telescope. The men were Yukio Miyazaki and Masao Ikeda of the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research. Using the figures obtained, they created a map showing radiation distribution.
