Beta and Gamma Dose Rates From Terrestrially Distributed Sources

Description: Report that examines the dose rate of radiation in the air and in a test subject due to radioactive materials (uranium, thorium, and potassium) that are present in the ground. The test subject in these experiments is a water cylinder that is meant to receive radiation in a manner similar to a person.

Determination of Cerium-144 in Vegetation and Soil

Description: Report issued by the Atomic Energy Commission over studies conducted on the determination of cerium-144 in vegetation and soil. Materials and methods used in the determination are discussed. This report includes tables, and an illustration.
Date: February 1964
Creator: Sutton, Doris C.

The Effect of Noise on Pulse Height Resolution

Description: Report wherein "[a] statistical study of base line fluctuations is used to relate noise measurements with the resolution spread of a pulse height analysis system. The resolution is inversely proportional to the signal-to-noise ratio. The proportionality constant is derived on the basis of a normal amplitude distribution for noise. A review of noise measuring techniques is given and adapted for use with electronic voltmeters. The form factors required to interpret meter readings in terms of the RMS value of noise are described" (p. 1).
Date: January 1962
Creator: Meth, Irving M. & Graveson, Robert T.

Effective Multiplication Factors for Bare Cylinders

Description: Report issued by the Atomic Energy Commission over computer-aided calculations for effective multiplication factors in cylinders. The methods, and applications of the calculations are discussed. This report includes tables, and illustrations.
Date: May 1962
Creator: Lanes, Stephen J.

Environmental Contamination from Weapon Tests

Description: Report issued by the Atomic Energy Commission over environmental effects from the fallout of nuclear weapons tests. The long-term effects of nuclear fallout on the environment, and human life are discussed. This report includes tables, and illustrations.
Date: October 1958
Creator: U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. Health and Safety Laboratory.
