Abstract:

Aircraft flying over surface areas contaminated by fallout from radioactive clouds from surface nuclear detonations accumulate ionizing doses. An investigation of this situation was accomplished, and the dose and dose rate resulting from such fly-overs are presented. The dose rates were also determined for aircraft approaching radioactive clouds and fallout contaminated surface areas. The results are presented in general terms, and examples are presented to illustrate the manner of applying the general results to specific situations. Author
