Description/Abstract:
THE RADIATION DOSES TO TROOP OBSERVERS AND VOLUNTEER OBSERVERS FOR EXE RCISE DESERT ROCK VI ARE RECONSTRUCTED FOR EACH APPLICABLE SHOT OF OPE RATION TEAPOT (1955). INITIAL NEUTRON AND GAMMA RADIATION DOSES ARE DE TERMINED FROM TRANSPORT CODES ATR4 AND ATR4.1. RESIDUAL RADIATION CONT OURS AND DECAY RATES ARE ESTABLISHED THROUGH A NEW AUTOMATED PROCEDURE THAT UTILIZES RAW DATA IN REGRESSION ANALYSIS TO FIT SPACE-TIME MODEL S. TROOP OPERATIONS DATA ARE COMBINED WITH THE RADIOLOGICAL DATA TO DE TERMINE INTEGRATED DOSE. UNCERTAINTIES ARE CALCULATED FOR EACH PARAMET ER. THE VOLUNTEERS RECEIVED THE HIGHEST OBSERVER DOSE--1.6 REM GAMMA A ND 4.5 REM NEUTRON. THE HIGHEST DOSE RECEIVED BY TROOP OBSERVERS WAS 1 .4 REM GAMMA AND 1.4 REM NEUTRON AT SHOT TESLA.
