Description/Abstract:
BA-140/SR-90 ACTIVITY RATIO DATA FOR INDIVIDUAL RAINS ARE DISCUSSED TO SHOW MEANS OF DISTINGUISHING BETWEEN THE STRATOSPHERIC OR TROPOSPHERI C ORIGIN OF FALLOUT. SR89/SR90 ACTIVITY RATIO DATA ALLOW APPROXIMATE E TIMATION OF THE FALLOUT CONTRIBUTION FROM MAJOR TEST SERIES. EVIDENCE FOR VARIATION IN STRATOSPHERIC STORAGE TIMES, TRANSPORT PATHS, AND FAL LOUT DISTRIBUTION AREAS IS DISCUSSED. ESTIMATED RESIDENCE TIMES ARE 6 MONTHS TO 1 YEAR FOR SOVIET TESTS, 1 TO 2 YEARS FOR DEBRISS IN THE LOW ER EQUATORIAL STRATOSPHERE, AND 5 TO 10 YEARS FOR THE CASTLE TESTS.
