Description/Abstract:
THE SIMULATION OF A REALISTIC FALLOUT ENVIRONMENT WAS REQUIRED FOR THE DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS TO EVALUATE POST-NUCLEAR ATTACK RECLAMATION EQU IPMENT AND PROCEDURES. A SIMPLIFIED MATHEMATICAL FALLOUT MODEL WAS UT ILIZED TO ESTIMATE FALLOUT PARTICLE SIZES, ACCUMULATED INITIAL MASS LE VELS, AND STANDARD RADIATION INTENSITIES THAT MIGHT OCCUR UNDER SPECIF IED CONDITIONS OF WEAPON YIELD AND DOWNWIND DISTANCE FROM A LAND SURFA CE NUCLEAR DETONATION. FALLOUT PARTICLE SIZE, DEPOSITED MASS PER UNIT AREA, AND STANDARD RADIATION INTENSITY AS FUNCTIONS OF DOWNWIND DISTA NCE AND WEAPON YIELDS FROM 1 KILOTON TO 100 MEGATON ARE PRESENTED GRAP HICALLY TO FACILITATE RAPID SELECTION OF SIMULATED FALLOUT ENVIRONMENT S.
