Abstract:

Radiochemical analyses have been performed on four sea-water samples from Operation WIGWAM. The confining environment of the deep underwater explosion of this atomic weapon produced no unusual effects on relative yields of products, but it did appear to increase the efficiency of the burst. Fractionation of radioactive materials before collection did not seem to be serious.
