Abstract:

The U. S. Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory conducted a study of the migration of fused fallout simulant into alternately frozen and thawed soils. Four different soils or soil mixtures were used Monterey sand treated with Barium-140 and sodium silicate was the fallout simulant. Radiation levels were measured after each of twelve thaw-freeze cycles. It was concluded that the fused fallout simulant did not migrate into the soils. Further work is recommended using actual fallout debris.
