Abstract:

Data on the fallout specific activity from Shot Small Boy was analyzed. The specific activity for particles of about 50 to 200 microns in diameter was approximately constant, and for particles over 2,000 microns was approximately inversely proportional to particle diameter. An exponential function was fitted to the data to represent the dependence of specific activity on particle diameter in shifting from volume to surface area modes of incorporation of specific activity.
