Description/Abstract:
THE RADIATION DOSE IS RECONSTRUCTED FOR 3RD MCPAEB PERSONNEL PARTICIPA TING IN EXERCISES INVOLVING HELICOPTER LIFTED ASSAULTS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE BEE EVENT OF OPERATION TEAPOT, EXERCISE DESERT ROCK VI. BRIGRADE PERSONNEL WERE EXPOSED TO INITIAL RADIATION WHILE IN TRENCHE S AT THE TIME OF THE BEE EVENT DETONATION. THEY WERE ALSO EXPOSED TO RESIDUAL RADIATION FROM EARLIER EVENT TURK DURING THEIR SUBSEQUENT MANEUVERS AND TO RESIDUAL RADIATION FROM THE BEE EVENT DURING INSPECT ION OF EQUIPMENT DISPLAYS. THE CALCULATED TOTAL GAMMA DOSES TO THE BU LK OF PARTICIPATING TROOPS RANGE FROM ABOUT 0.57-0.85 REM.
