Abstract:

The report is intended to be used as an aid to military mission planners in determining allowable proximity to a nuclear fireball from the standpoints of permanent retinal injury and the temporary effects of flashblindness. Pertinent physical and physiological phenomena are discussed in moderate detail the nucleus of the work being a family of curves which indicate acceptable separation distances for the prevention of retinal burns and flashblindness. Detailed instructions for approximating acceptable separation distances using a slide rule are included as an appendix.
