April 24, 2020. Assessing radiation exposure across a population by geolocation

We present a new approach for estimating exposures in radiation incidents or accidents using geolocated dosimetry data:
Rogan P, Mucaki E, Lu R, Shirley B, Waller E, and Knoll J. Meeting radiation dosimetry capacity requirements of population-scale exposures with geostatistical sampling, PLoS ONE 15(4): e0232008. [https://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0232008].
The MedRxiv version contains a Note Added in Proof describing how this method could be used for finding hotspots during the monitoring phase of the COVID19 pandemic. (https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.04.08.20058446v1)
The article is Open Access and contains links to an online protocol and a data repository.
