Abstract:

This report presents a technical basis for defining surface density of fallout contamination when the contaminating debris is fractionated. Specifically, it recommends that the exposure dose rate from fractionated debris be expressed as a contamination surface density multiplied by the sum of three terms. The first term is the exposure dose rate contribution of refractorily behaving fission product nuclides per unit contamination surface density. The second term is a similar quantity for volatilely behaving fission-product nuclides. The third term expresses the contribution of the induced activities.
