Abstract:

Since the original publication of WSEG Research Memorandum No. 10 we have become aware of additional information on the transport of radioactive debris from low- yield detonations. These data indicate that one cannot assume the same distribution of activity versus particle size for both high-and low-yield detonations. We are, therefore, issuing this supplement which is intended to correct the data for the kiloton-yield range.
