Description/Abstract:
MEASUREMENTS OF PLUTONIUM 238 AND PLUTONIUM 239,240 FALLOUT FROM NUCLE AR WEAPONS TESTS AND THE SNAP-9A NAVIGATIONAL SATELLITE BURNUP ARE PRE SENTED FOR THE YEAR THROUGH 1980. DATA ABSTRACTED FROM THE LITERATURE WERE TAKEN FROM THE STRATOSPHERE, ATMOSPHERE, AND FROM DEPOSITION AND SURFACE SOIL. OVER 7300 DATA ENTRIES ARE INCLUDED IN THE 23 TABLES. THE TABLES ARE SORTED BY MEDIUM ( STRATOSPHERE, ATMOSPHERE, AND DEPOS ITION NEAR THE SURFACE AND SOIL, NUCLIDE, HEMISPHERE, AND LONGITUDE GO ING FROM WEST TO EAST, AND ARE ARRANGED IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. LATIT UDES ARE ALSO PROVIDED. FALLOUT LEVELS IN SI UNITS ( BECQUERELS ), CA LCULATED FROM THE ORGINAL READINGS, AND THE REFERENCES FROM WHICH THE ORIGINAL DATA WERE TAKEN ARE GIVEN IN THE REPORT. THE APPENDIX IS A M AP SHOWING THE VARIOUS SITES FROM WHICH DATA WERE OBTAINED.
