Abstract:

A computational method developed in an earlier report, AD-247 595, applies to the neutron field from an air-burst weapon. In this report the neutron flux as a function of energy and depth in the vicinity of the air-soil boundary at large distances from ground zero is investigated for several soil-water contents. Several aspects of the results are presented which conform with expectations. The results are briefly compared with the results from cyclotron experiments. Author
