Topics dlscussed include: operational procedures; collection of data by aerial monltoring, mobile monitoring, potash mlne surveys, air sampling, milk sampllng, water sampling, soil and vegetation sampllng, and a film badge program; laboratory control, emergency measures; medlcal services; and veterinary activltles. It was concluded that no persons ln the vlclnlty of the Gnome test site recelved harmful amounts of radlation either lnternally or externally. (M.C.G.)

Preliminary Studies of Scavenging Systems Related to Radioactive Fallout : Summary Report, May 1, 1960 to March 31, 1961

Description: Abstract: "Experimental investigation of aerosol particle capture by evaporating and condensing water drops has shown that capture is a function of the rate of water drop growth and aerosol particle diameter. Capture was found to be proportional to the rate of water vapor condensation and inversely proportional to aerosol particle diameter. The influence of water vapor gradient and particle size on aerosol particle capture during evaporation is insignificant. The experimental results are explained on the basis of particle penetration through the boundary layer of a water drop. An analysis of previous research on radioactivity of dry particulate matter in an urban atmosphere is included."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, December 15, 1960 to February 15, 1961

Description: Introduction: "This program is a study of the basic variables that affects electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols of submicron size, especially below 0.1 micron. The variables of concern are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, and initial charge. During this period optimum charger design was studied. The results will serve as a basis for a systematic study of particle charging. A number of improvements were incorporated into the classifier flow system and electrical circuits. The technique for photographing deposits in the electron microscope was also improved, and sample photographs are included."

Description: Introduction: "This program is a study of the basic variables that affect electrostatic classifications of heterogeneous aerosols of submicron size, especially below 0.1 micron. The variables of interest are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, an initial charge. During this period emphasis was placed on studying and controlling initial charge. A new technique was developed for collecting light and electron microscope samples. Further improvements of the charging device were studied."

Electrostatic Classification of Submicron Airborne Particles : Progress Report, April 15 to June 15, 1961

Description: Abstract: "This program is a study of the basic variables that affect electrostatic classification of heterogeneous aerosols of submicron size,especially below 0.1[mu]. The variables of interest are particle size, concentration, composition, shape, and initial charge. During this period research was concerned with classifying particles as small as 0.01[mu]. This research included work on an aerosol generator for monodispersed 0.015-[mu] gold particles. The performance of the charger was further improved by studying its basic electrical characteristics. Tests with the electrostatic classifier showed very clearly the interference due to the stabilizer material associated with polystyrene latex suspensions. These suspensions are used to produce monodispersed aerosols for calibration."

Literature Survey on World Isotope and Radiation Technology : First Interim Report Covering the Period from June 15, 1961 to August 14, 1961

Description: Abstract: "This is the first interim report of a literature survey investigating the uses and technology of radioscopes in the countries of the world, with particular emphasis necessarily placed on those more highly industrialized nations. Part I includes a general summary of the quantity and quality of radioisotope work being performed in these countries. Among the outstanding radioisotope applications with respect to quantity is the work of Japan in chemical research, that of USSR in metals research, and that in the USA in medical research. A detailed qualitative examination of the relatively narrow region of radioisotope applications in leak detection is also presented. Part II of this report gives a direct comparison between the progress and status of the US and the USSR in the varied uses of radio-isotopes."

Improved Zirconium Alloys : Summary Report, April 1, 1960 - January 31, 1961

Description: Abstract: "The objectives of this program are the development of zirconium-base alloys possessing exceptionally good corrosion resistance to 680 F water or 750-900 F system and/or improved strength at elevated temperatures. Approximately 100 binary compositions were prepared and screened by corrosion testing in 680 F water; selected compositions were exposed to 750 F steam. The data obtained indicate promising bases for ternary and quaternary alloys. Related investigations involving zirconium purity and heat treatment for improvement of corrosion properties are proceeding. Hydrogen pickup and mechanical properties will be used as acceptability tests on promising compositions."

The Boron-Carbon System: Quarterly Report Number 3, November 1960 - January 1961

Description: Abstract: A definitive investigation of the boron-carbon equilibrium system is being made by X-ray diffraction, metallographic, and thermal analytical techniques. On the basis of metallographic and X-ray diffraction studies it is concluded that boron carbide has a range of solubility from approximately 10 to 20 atomic per cent carbon at 1500 degrees to 2000 degrees Celsius. The melting point of the carbide-graphite eutectic has been established as 2325-2350 degrees Celsius. No reversible allotropy of the beta-rhombohedral structure has been observed. The solubility of carbon in boron is very small. The melting point of dilute carbon alloys is found to be essentially the same as that of pure boron (2040 degrees to 2050 degrees). No metallographic evidence of a three-phase reaction of dilute alloys is observed.
