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.

Neutron-Field and Induced-Activity Measurements-Operation Bren

Description: From Abstract: "Certain characteristics of the neutron field from this unshielded reactor were measured. The activation of gold, manganese, sulfur, cadmium-covered gold, and cadmium-covered manganese was determined as a function of distance from the reactor and of depth in the ground. The data show how those parameters, important for calculating neutron-induced activity in the soil, vary as a function of the height of the source and the slant range from the source."

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."
