Abstract:

The paper is intended for use by postattack research contractors and other interested persons as a summary statement on the problems of radiation exposure control with emphasis on the period after people emerge from shelter. This paper is the first of its kind on the subject and, for this reason, certain background material is included. An effort is made to identify and discuss problems in simple and direct language, and to relate to operational situations. Loss of precision that results thereby is not likely to change the implications and conclusions in any important way. References listed at the end of the paper contain the up-to-date scientific information on this subject also, footnotes are used in some cases to provide supplemental information.
