Aeroradioactivity Survey and Areal Geology of Parts of Southeastern New York and Southern New England (ARMS-I)

Description: Report concerning "[a]n airborne gamma-radiation survey of Connecticut, Rhode Island, and parts of New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont" (p. 5) made between 1958 and 1960 that indicated that a broad range of radioactivity exists in those areas depending on the type of bedrock. Correlations are drawn between this radioactivity and the geology of the region.

The Particulate State of Fission Products Released From Irradiated Uranium When Heated in Air: [Part ]1. Preliminary Results for I131, Te132, and Ru103

Description: From Introduction: "The present study was initiated to provide data regarding the particulate state of fission products released from uranium heated in air. It was expected that the information gained in this work would be valuable in planning experiments in which animals would be exposed to aerosols of mixed fission products and in determining the feasibility of using the effluent from a fuel specimen melt-down or oxidation in such exposures."
