Abstract:

Although the primary interest of the Operations Research Office is the reactions of military personnel to atomic explosions, certain aspects of the South Amboy disaster appear quite important from the general point of view of civilian defense. This study both of actual effects on civilian populations and possible effects on military personnel is offered in the hope that it may be useful to agencies now actively engaged in such studies and that it may serve as a stimulus to produce much needed action to protect American community life against the threat of atomic explosions.
