The blast program for this operation was designed to establish the basic blast phenomenology for specific shots. The nuclear-radiation program, larger than in any previous operation, has as its primary objective the determination of fallout contours and collection of data in connection with the mechanism of fallout for use in the development of a fallout model. This program also included projects to study decontamination and nuclear-radiation countermeasures and initial neutron and gamma radiations.
