Pagination or Media Count:
The three major objectives and parts of this project were to compare and evaluate the accuracy and practicality of chemical vs film and other methods of gamma dosimetry for radiations encountered under bomb conditions at sites receiving 1 either prompt- or residual-gamma exposures or mixtures of both, 2 only residual-gamma radiations, either neutron induced or from fission-product fall-out, and 3 mixed neutron-gamma irradiation plus correlation with biological effects. Keywords include Nuclear explosion testing, and NTPR Nuclear Test Personnel Review.
