Description/Abstract:
THE PROCEDURES DEVELOPED AND USED IN OBTAINING DATA ON INDIVIDUAL PART ICLES RESULTING FROM THE FOUR EVENTS OF OPERATION ROLLER COASTER ARE P RESENTED WITH DISCUSSIONS OF THEIR ACCURACY AND RELIABILITY. A VERY LA RGE AMOUNT OF DATA ON PARTICLE SIZE, SHAPE, COLOR, AND PLUTONIUM CONTE NT WAS OBTAINED. LESS EXTENSIVE DATA ON URANIUM CONTENT WAS OBTAINED B Y STANDARD FLUOROMETRY. SPECIAL TECHNIQUES FOR OBTAINING THE DENSITY O F IRREGULAR PARTICLES, IDENTIFYING SUBMICRON RADIOACTIVE PARTICLES, AN D OBSERVING THE ELEMENTAL DISTRIBUTION QUANTITATIVELY IN INDIVIDUAL PA RTICLES WERE INVESTIGATED IN DEPTH; RECOMMENDATIONS ON FURTHER DEVELOP MENT OF THESE TECHNIQUES ARE INCLUDED.
