Abstract:

Unattended, automatic, continuously recording gamma-ray monitors were placed in 28 towns in populated areas adjacent to the Nevada Test Site throughout Operation Teapot. Readings no higher than 10 mrhr were detected at these locations. No large quantities of fall-out were encountered. However, the continuous recording of the gamma radiation was compiled at each station. The equipment was reliable and operated unattended over relatively long periods. Author
