Title: Nuclear Detonation Fallout: Key Considerations for Internal Exposure and Population Monitoring

Abstract

The potential for detonation of a low-yield Improvised Nuclear Device (IND) in a major U.S. urban area is a significant national concern. The Department of Homeland Security Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is providing technical guidance for regional, state and local responders who have responsibility for developing local IND response plans. Fallout exposure represents the greatest preventable injury after a nuclear detonation.
