Conversion coefficients of radionuclide deposition density to the ambient dose equivalent rate at 1 m height above ground were calculated for exponentially distributed sources in the ground. Firstly, Monte Carlo transport simulations assuming exponential distributions in the ground were performed to obtain ambient dose equivalent for mono-energetic $$gamma$$ ray sources having different relaxation depths; next, on the basis of the simulated data, conversion coefficients for radionuclides were composed considering recent nuclear decay data. The ambient dose equivalent rates were then compared to the effective dose rates for reference adults and a new-born baby. It was confirmed that the ambient dose equivalent sufficiently overestimates effective doses.
