Abstract:

The report presents an analysis of a series of radiation measurements of an underground ammunition magazine converted into a shelter. Data obtained by the U.S. Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory were compared with previously published theoretical and experimental work, and the protection afforded by the shelter if it were exposed to a full infinite field of contamination of either fallout or cobalt-60 was estimated.
