CLIMATOLOGICAL PROBABILITY OF FALLOUT FROM MULTIPLE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS
AIR WEATHER SERVICE SCOTT AFB ILL
Pagination or Media Count:
A method of determining the climatological probability of fallout from multiple nuclear detonations is described. It is of interest to personnel and activities providing fallout information for use in planning defensive measures against fallout from nuclear weapons. A general procedure for a simple case of two detonations, based on the probability of two events occurring together, was developed by applying a vector regression equation to the effective wind parameters at the two points of detonation. This was followed by an extension of the development to include three or more detonations. Author
