Abstract:

The objective of this project was to obtain information about the residual radiation environment in the crater and crater-lip area resulting from the employment of low-yield fission weapons. The information needed specifically was 1 the change in intensity with time 2 the change in mean-gamma-energy level with time and 3 the activity-level variation with depth in the soil.
