Description/Abstract:
VOLUME III OF SERIES, WHICH DETAILS THE ESTIMATED DOSES FOR THE SUPPO RT SHIP PERSONNEL FOR OPERATION CROSSROADS. VOLUME I IS 48988 ( CITATI ON CONTAINS FULL ABSTRACT ). VOLUME II IS 48989. EXTERNAL RADIATION DOSES ARE RECONSTRUCTED FOR CREWS OF SUPPORT AND TA RGET SHIPS OF JOINT TASK FORCE ONE AT OPERATION CROSSROADS, 1946. VOLU ME I DESCRIBES THE RECONSTRUCTION METHODOLOGY, WHICH CONSISTS OF MODEL ING THE RADIATION ENVIRONMENT, TO INCLUDE THE RADIOACTIVITY OF LAGOON WATER, TARGET SHIPS, AND SUPPORT SHIP CONTAMINATION; RETRACING SHIP PA THS THROUGH THIS ENVIRONMENT; AND CALCULATING THE DOSES TO SHIPBOARD P ERSONNEL. THE USS RECLAIMER, A SUPPORT SHIP, IS SELECTED AS A REPRESEN TATIVE SHIP TO DEMONSTRATE THIS METHODOLOGY. DOSES FOR ALL OTHER SHIPS ARE SUMMARIZED. VOLUME II (APPENDIX A) DETAILS THE RESULTS FOR TARGET SHIP PERSONNEL. VOLUME III (APPENDIX B) DETAILS THE RESULTS FOR SUPPO RT SHIP PERSONNEL. CALCULATED DOSES FOR MORE THAN 36,000 PERSONNEL ABO ARD 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 , DOSES DUE TO TARGET SHIP REBORDING AND DOSES ACCRUED AFTER DEPARTURE FROM BIKINI CAN BE CALCULATED, BASED ON THE INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES OF EXPOSURE.
