Abstract : This report discusses the Cloud Rise Module (CRM) of the Defense Land Fallout Interpretive Code (DELFIC), the DOD's reference fallout code. The first section discusses the errors found in the 1979 documentation. These errors have been corrected and further research by the Air Force Institute of Technology will include the corrections listed in this section. The second section will discuss the use of Mathematica in simulating the CRM. This part of the report will describe how a higher level language was used to review the results of DELFIC's CRM and uncover some problem areas. The final part of this report will describe further work as planned by the author in improving the CRM of DELFIC. DELFIC, Nuclear clouds, Fallout, Cloud rise
