Efficiency of Scavenging Devices in Determining Falloug. Progress Report No. 6 March 15 to July 31, 1957
Description: A fall-out sample collector was designed and tested for use in collecting samples at the soil surface. The sampler consists of artificial grass and a stainless steel pot. Results are included from preliminary studies on the scavenging properties of artificial grass. The effects of relative humidity, rain, and wind velocity on the efficiency of scavenging devices were investigated. A comparison was made of Sr/sup 90/ fall-out data from samples collected on gummed film and surface soil samples from various locations. Preliminary experiments were performed for the evaluation of devices used in determining air concentration of radioactive fall-out or other particulate matter. (For preceding period see AECU-3435.)
