Abstract:

The problem here is divided into three parts 1 a fallout model for calculating the distribution of activity with given wind conditions, 2 a climatologic model using existing climatologic data to provide a probabilistic treatment of the wind parameters in the fallout model, and 3 a biological effect relation between the distribution of activity and the biological damage done. A final section gives a summary of the important relations arranged for convenient reference. It also provides a tabulation of characteristic values of computed fallout contours from 1 KT to 100 MT for both H1 dose rate and maximum biological dose. These tables are arranged to include those parameters usually required to establish templates for hand fallout calculations.
