Abstract:

The fallout deposition required to deliver a specific integrated 3O-yr dose to any tissue in man, for any and all radionuclides in a single event, is presented in graphical as well as analytical form. The model used is consistent with the data that are available to this problem at the present time. A table of effective tissue half-lives for given radiological and biological half-lives is given for use with the graphs. Sample calculations are also included.
