Description/Abstract:
EXTERNAL RADIATION DOSES ARE RECONSTRUCTED FOR CREWS OF SUPPORT AND TARGET SHIPS OF JOINT TASK FORCE ONE AT OPERATION CROSSROADS, 1946. VOLUME I DESCRIBES THE RECONSTURCTION METHODOLOGY, WHICH CONSISTS OF MODELING THE RADIATION ENVIRONMENT, TO INCLUDE THE RADIOACTIVITY OF LAGOON WATER, TARGET SHIPS, AND SUPPORT SHIP CONTAMINATION; RETRACING SHIP PATHS THROUGH THIS ENVIRONMENT; AND CALCULATING THE DOSES TO SHI PBOARD PERSONNEL. THE USS RECLAIMER, A SUPPORT SHIP, IS SELECTED AS A REPRESENTATIVE SHIP TO DEMONSTRATE THIS METHODOLOGY. DOSES FOR ALL OTHER SHIPS ARE SUMMARIZED. VOLUME II (APPENDIX A, 48989 ) DETAILS TH E RESULTS FOR TARGET SHIP PERSONNEL. VOLUME II (APPENDIX B,48990 ) DETAILS THE RESULTS FOR SUPPORT SHIP PERSONNEL. CALCULATED DOSES FOR MORE THAN 36,000 PERSONNEL ABOARD SUPPORT SHIPS WHILE AT BIKINI RANGE FROM ZERO TO 1.7 REM. OF THOSE, APPROXIMATELY 34,000 ARE LESS THAN 0.5 REM. FROM THE MODELS PROVIDED DOSED DUE TO TARGET SHIP REBOARDING AND DOSES ACCRUED AFTER DEPARTURE FORM BIKINI CAN BE CALCULATED, BASE D ON THE INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES OF EXPOSURE.
