The report is a brief description of a fallout model and other submodels that have been formulated to assist in the assessment of radiological defense problems and in the evaluation of radiological countermeasures. The design of the model system emphasizes application to both short-term and long- term radiological problems of interest to civil defense. The types of input data that are utilized, the various important independent parameters that are considered in the models and submodels, and the types of output information are listed. Also, the major assumptions, constraints, and concepts involved in the mathematical construction of each model are summarized. The purpose of the report is to provide researchers on other civil defense investigations general background information on the composition and outputs of these models. The report does not include any of the mathematical formulations of the models.
