Abstract : A release of trace quanti ies of fission products had been postulated as a consequence of the operation of the high-temperature air-cooled TORY-IIA engineering test reactor. To determine the effluents released, and environmental dispersal of these effluents, the Air Force Special Weapons Center (AFSWC) - assisted by General Dynamics/Fort Worth - constructed an air-sampling and micrometeorological network at the AEC Nevada Test Site. The network instrumentation provided the data needed to evaluate the radiological hazards associated with the downwind dispersal of fission products. The direct radiation from the reactor was also measured. The experimental data and their analysis are presented along with a description of the test site, sampling equipment, and nalytical techniques used. (Author)
