The spectrum of electrons emitted into the earths magnetic field by an exoatmospheric nuclear burst is considerably more energetic than the spectrum of all delayed electrons from fission, a spectrum often used. A better electron spectrum for general use is presented. Some items are calculated, including a depth-dose curve, for the two spectra compared. Author
