Description/Abstract:
THE GREENHOUSE OPERATION CONSISTED OF A SERIES OF FOUR SHOTS CONDUCTED AT ENIWETOK DURING THE SPRING OF 1951. THE EXTERNAL NEUTRON THRESHOL D MEASUREMENTS (SEE APPENDIX A) CONSISTED IN THE USE OF GOLD SAMPLES T O MEASURE INTEGRATED THERMAL NEUTRON FLUXES AND SULFUR, IODINE, AND ZI RCONIUM SAMPLES TO MEASURE FLUXES OF HIGHER ENERGY NEUTRONS. THE IODI NE ALSO MEASURED HIGH-ENERGY GAMMA-RAY INTENSITY. IN ADDITION, MEASUR EMENTS WERE MADE ON SLOW-AND FAST-NEUTRON INTENSITIES AS A FUNCTION OF TIME.
