Abstract:

The effects of wind variability on nuclear fallout integrated doses is examined using recently developed Monte Carlo algorithms to generate sample three dimensional wind fields over the continental United States. Two scenarios are presented. The first is an intense attack on a proposed Advance Minuteman MX site near Yuma AZ. The second scenario is a lighter attack on the six Minuteman ICBM missile fields.
