Abstract:

The RAND gamma ray Monte Carlo code is used to predict dosages from point isotropic monoenergetic sources of 1.28 Mev and 0.661 Mev near an air-ground interface. These results are compared with experimental results for identical geometry obtained by the Nuclear Defense Laboratory. In general, the agreement between the Monte Carlo estimates and the experimental results is quite good.
