Abstract : Calculations of dose rate vs time due to neutroninduced radioactivity in the ear are presented. Calculations are performed under conditions of plane symmetry for neutron source energies of 14 Mev, 9.89 Mev, and 0.025 ev (thermal) for three different soil compositions and two water contents. Dose rate vs time curves are given for the period between 2 min and 140 min after irradi tion. (Author)
