Description/Abstract:
MEASUREMENTS OF THE INTENSITY OF FALL-OUT GAMMA RADIATION AS A FUNCTIO N OF TIME AND DISTANCE FROM THE IVY MIKE AND KING SHOTS ARE REPORTED. INSTRUMENTS WERE PLACED AROUND ENIWETOK ATOLL AND AT SEVERAL ATOLLS I N A SOUTHERLY SEMICIRCLE WITH RESPECT TO ENIWETOK. CONTRARY TO EXPECT ATIONS THE WINDS PREVAILING AT THE TIME OF THE MIKE SHOT WERE WOUTH OR SOUTHEASTERLY AND NO FALL-OUT GAMMA RADIATION WITH THE LIMITS OF DETE CTIBILITY WAS MEASURED AT ANY LOCATION OTHER THAN ENIWETOK. THE GAMMA RADIATION MEASURED ON ENIWETOK ATOLL WAS CONSIDERED NORMAL FISSION FR AGMENT RADIATION WHICH DECAYED WITH A TIME E-1.2 CHARACTERISTIC.
