Description/Abstract:
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER IS TO REVIEW SOME OF THE OBSERVATIONS AND FI NDINGS OF THE FALLOUT STUDIES PERFORMED BY ENRAD/UCLA DURING THE PERIO D 1947-1958. THESE STUDIES WERE DONE IN THE ENVIRONS OF THE SHOT TRIN ITY IN NEW MEXICO AND THE NEVADA TEST SITE. THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO THE FIRST NUCLEAR DEVICE WAS DETONATED AT THE TRINITY SITE, NEW MEXICO. TWO YEARS LATER A MULTIDISCIPLINE FIELD GROUP WAS ORGANIZED AND DIRE CTED BY DR. S.L. WARREN, DEAN OF THE UCLA SCHOOL OF MEDICINE, AND DR. A.W. BELLAMY, DEPARTMENT OF BIOPHYSICS, SCHOOL OF MEDICINE, UCLA. THI S FIELD GROUP OF PROFESSORS AND THEIR GRADUATE STUDENTS REPRESENTED EX PERTISE IN ANIMAL BIOLOGY, BOTANY, PEDOLOGY,RADIOCHEMISTRY, AND HEALTH PHYSICS.
