Estimating Safety Probabilities from Fallout Forecasts for Nevada Test Site

Estimating Safety Probabilities from Fallout Forecasts for Nevada Test Site

Date: July 1, 1960
Creator: Reed, Jack W.
Description: Abstract: "Available data on wind persistence and wind forecasting capability have been applied in estimating the probability of a fallout pattern shifting from an uninhabited safe sector into a populated region. Safety probability is computed from win variability, forecasting accuracy, initial height and particle size of radioactivity landing at a point in the predicted fallout pattern, predicted wind speed, length of forecast period, and safe-sector angular width."
