Description/Abstract:
THE BANEBERRY EVENT WAS AN UNDERGROUND WEAPONS TEST CONDUCTED AT THE N EVADA TEST ON THE MORNING OF 18 DECEMBER 1970. ACCIDENTAL VENTING OCCU RRED, PRODUCING A CLOUD OF RADIOACTIVITY WHICH MOVED OVER CENTRAL AND NORTHERN NEVADA INTO UTAH. AT THE TIME OF THE BANEBERRY VENTING, THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH'S DEPARTMENT OF RADIOLOGICAL HEALTH AND THE BIOMED ICAL DIVISION OF THE LAWRENCE RADIATION LABORATORY WERE CONDUCTING COO PERATIVE RADIOECOLOGICAL STUDIES THROUGHOUT THE STATE OF UTAH. THESE S TUDIES WERE DESIGNED TO DOCUMENT THE DISTRIBUTION AND MOVEMENT OF RADI ONUCLIDES IN AGRICULTURAL AND NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS IN THE STATE OF UTA H. AS PART OF A PROGRAM OF ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLING AN AIR SAMPLING NETW ORK HAD BEEN ACTIVATED ON 30 OCTOBER 1970, AND FILTER SAMPLES WERE OBT AINED THROUGH 11 DECEMBER 1970. THESE SAMPLES, WHEN COMPARED WITH THOS E OBTAINED DURING PASSAGE OF THE BANEBERRY CLOUD, ENABLE A PRECISE DES CRIPTION OF THE RADIOACTIVITY PRESENT IN THE STATE OF UTAH.
