Description/Abstract:
RADIATION ENVIRONMENTS ARE RECONSTRUCTED FOR TASK GROUP 7.3 SHIPS AND TO RESIDENCE ISLANDS OF ENIWETOK AND KWAJALEIN ATOLLS RESULTING FROM THE THREE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS COMPRISING OPERATION SANDSTONE ( APRIL- MAY 1948 ). SECONDARY ( LATE-TIME ) FALLOUT WAS THE SOURCE OF VIRTUA LLY ALL OF THE RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATION ON THE SHIPS AND ISLANDS, MOS T OF WHICH RESULTED FROM X-RAY AND YOKE EVENTS. FALLOUT FROM THE ZEBRA EVENT WAS MINIMAL. FROM THE RECONSTRUCTED FREE-FIELD RADIOLOGICAL EN VIRONMENTS, AN EQUIVALENT PERSONNEL FILM BADGE DOSE IS CALCULATED AND COMPARED TO ACTUAL DOSIMETRY DATA OBTAINED DURING THE OPERATION. CAL CULATED DOSES AND DOSIMETRY ARE CONSISTENT, ALTHOUGH MOST OF THE CALCU LATED AND FILM BADGE DOSES ARE BELOW FILM BADGE THRESHOLD.
