Title: Letter report: Title listing of daily operating data on Hanford single-pass reactors, 1944--1971

Abstract

The primary objective of the Hanford Environmental Dose Reconstruction (HEDR) Project is to estimate the radiation dose that populations and individuals could have received as a result of emissions from Hanford Site operations since 1944, with descriptions of the uncertainties inherent in such estimates. A secondary objective is to make project documentation and Hanford-originated references used in the reports available to the public. Hanford-originated documents of potential interest and/or use to the HEDR Project are made publicly available through the US Government's National Technical Information Service and placed in the US Department of Energy Richland Field Office (RL) Public Reading Room in Richland, Washington. Project work is conducted under several technical tasks, among which is the Source Terms Task. Under this task, estimates of radioactive emissions from Hanford facilities since 1944 are developed. These estimates are based on historical measurements and production information. The Information Resources Task identifies and retrieves historical production operating information for developing source terms. The purpose of this letter report is to identify documents that record daily reactor operating information at the Hanford Site for the years 1944--1971. Complete bibliographic citations and sample pages from each different format for Hanford reactor operations data are included.
