The objective of Project Stemwinder was to probe and sample nuclear clouds as soon as possible after cloud stabilization in order to investigate the amount of radioactive debris which stabilizes in the troposphere and its distribution with height. Sampling was accomplished by the RB-57 aircraft. The detonations investigated were all air bursts over water during Operation Dominic I at Christmas Island. Some data for surface detonations obtained by sampling aircraft during Operation Redwing are used to compare with the Stemwinder data.
