Abstract : The objective of this project was to document the distribution and intensity of fallout from all shots at Operation CASTLE. Data were obtained for Shots 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 by use of land stations, anchored lagoon stations, and free-floating sea stations. A complete analysis of the Shot 1 fallout to 300 nautical miles downwind including the development of an experimental model based on fallout particle trajectories is presented as well as data on Shot 2 fallout to 50 nautical miles downwind and the close-in fallout from Shots 3, 4, and 6.
