Abstract:

Radiological monitoring and fallout prediction concepts of the present civil defense program are presented and recommendations made for improving the program. The conclusions and recommendations result from a detailed study of the radiological information needs and various radiological monitoring methods. This study included instrumentation and equipment, small scale perturbations of the radiation field by various factors, and fallout prediction methods. The recommendations made include using aerial monitoring techniques as the primary radiological monitoring method and considering the use of a fixed automatic system at the national level only. Other specific recommendations involve instrumentation, training, and organization.
