Abstract:

The object of the experiment was to study the ionizing radiation, under various conditions, in fields of residual contamination resulting from several nuclear detonations with respect to the relative dose at various depths in approximately unit-density material. Some measurements were also made of the initial radiation to permit cor relation with previous tests, and comparison of the depth dose curves obtained from the initial radiation with the curves obtained from the residual radiation.
