Abstract : The dispersal in time and sea of radioactive contamination produced by a deep underwater atomic blast was studied. Instrumentation methods obtained radiation intensity versus depth information for several surface locations and continuously monitored a sea-water intake line aboard ship. Surface contamination measurements were also made. This work was performed in conjunction with marine biological surveys by the University of Washington and oceanographic studies by the Naval Hydrographic Office. (Author)
