Description/Abstract:
THE GENERAL OBJECTIVE WAS TO OBTAIN DATA SUFFICIENT TO CHARACTERIZE TH E FALLOUT, INTERPRET THE AERIAL AND OCEANOGRAPHIC SURVEY RESULTS, AND CHECK FALLOUT-MODEL THEORY FOR SHOTS CHEROKEE, ZUNI, FLATHEAD, NAVAJO, AND TEWA DURING OPERATION REDWING. DETAILED MEASUREMENTS OF FALLOUT B UILDUP WERE PLANNED. MEASUREMENTS OF RADIATION CHARCTERISTICS AND PHYS ICAL, CHEMICAL, AND RADIOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF INDIVIDUAL SOLID AND S LURRY PARTICLES AND TOTAL CLOUD AND FALLOUT SAMPLES WERE ALSO PLANNED, ALONG WITH DETERMINATIONS OF THE SURFACE DENSITIES OF ACTIVITY AND EN VIRONMENTAL COMPONENTS IN THE FALLOUT AT EACH MAJOR STATION.
