Ichiban: The Dosimetry Program for Nuclear Bomb Survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki - A Status Report as of April 1, 1964

Description: From Abstract: "The approach to the problem has been as fundamental as possible with emphasis on quantitative measurements and calculations of the energy, angular, and spatial distributions of weapons radiations in an air-over-ground geometry. Spatial distributions of dose in various shields, including Japanese dwellings, have been measured. Techniques have been developed in Japan for verifying the location of survivors and accurately describing their shielding environments."

Technical Concept-Operation Bren

Description: From Abstract: "The Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Health Physics Research Reactor is to be attached to a hoist platform on a 1500-ft tower at the Nevada Test Site (NTS). The project is a continuation of the studies commenced in 1956 for evaluating the radiation doses of persons exposed to nuclear weapons, especially the residents of Hiroshima and Nagaski, Japan. Measurements will be made of the energy, angular, and spatial distributions of the radiation from the reactor."

Experimental Evaluation of the Fallout-Radiation Protection Provided by Selected Structures in the Los Angeles Area

Description: Report regarding experiments made to determine the fallout-radiation protection offered by four types of buildings in Los Angeles, California. The first structure was the Laboratory of Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Biology and the University of California at Los Angeles, the second was a fallout shelter, the third was the communications area of the Los Angeles Police Department building, and the fourth was a classroom.

Norfolk-Peninsula Area (ARMS-II)

Description: From Introduction: "The ARMS-II Norfolk - Peninsula area survey was one many that have been flown for the CETO since the nationwide ARMS program was started (1958). Figure 2 shows the location of the areas that have been completed to date. The purpose of the program is to measure the present environmental levels of gamma radiation in areas around nuclear facilities and planned nuclear activities."
