Abstract:

The SAMCEP code BRL CR 330 is used to perform sensitivity studies to determine the effects of moisture content in the air and ground and different ground compositions upon the predicted tactical nuclear environments produced by a nuclear burst. Neutron and secondary gamma fluences, energy deposition rates and Compton electron currents are given for various combinations of 0 - 6 water vapor content of the atmosphere Nevada Test Site NTS, typical German dry and German wet soils and different weapon sources and burst heights.
