Title: SUMMARY OF GUMMED FILM RESULTS THROUGH DECEMBER 1959

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. (auth)
