Abstract:

Some of the apparent conclusions of this project are 1 low-yield, low-altitude devices do not lend themselves to a study by resonance scatter techniques 2 devices such as King Fish, Star Fish, very high yield weapons at 50 km or higher, and low-yield weapons salted with an appropriate material, give debris concentrations which can be followed for many days and over wide geographical areas 3 an inventory of material cannot be made with a neutral species, unless the degree of ionization is established by independent techniques. Another species for which the neutral and ionized state can be observed should largely remove this uncertainty 4 diffusion is an important mechanism for the long-term spread of debris over wide areas and 5 early time observations were made but have not been studied. This data includes Tight Rope and some of the air drops.
