SUMMARY OF GUMMED FILM RESULTS THROUGH DECEMBER 1959
The data for gummed-film fall-out measurements through Dec. 1959 are
reported. While the initial purpose of the gummed-film network was to determine
the geographic distribution and time of arrival of fall-out, considerable effort
has been devoted to computation of Sr/sup 90/ deposition and infinity gamma dose.
These latter computations have been satisfactory for the period of observation
and furnish data for locations not covered by other types of measurement.
Detailed comparisons are made between Sr/sup 90/ estimates from gummed film and
analyses made on pot and soil samples. Comparable tests of the gamma-dose
estimate are not possible. Summary tables are given for each gummed-film station
listing the monthly estimates of Sr/sup 90/ deposition and infinity gamma dose.
