PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Current data are presented from the HASL Fallout Program, the New Zealand Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, and the Dominion X-Ray and Radium Laboratory in New Zealand. Radionuclide levels in fallout, milk, tap water, diet, and upper air samples are given in tabular form. Also included are interpretive reports and notes dealing with fission product concentrations in the upper atmosphere, cumulative Sr/sup 90/ deposition levels from analyses of soils collected in 1962, and measurements of Cs/sup 137/ in the 1962 wheat crop. The production of and decay schemes for Cd isotopes generated in a high altitude 1962 U. S. ... continued below

The production of and decay schemes for Cd isotopes generated in a high altitude 1962 U. S. nuclear test are covered in a series of three reports. A listing of andnounced nuclear detonations and tables excenpted from published sources on the fission and total yields of nuclear tests precedes a report on inventories of selected radioisotopes from nuclear testing. A bibliography of recent literature pertinent to fallout studies is included. (auth)
