Abstract : Measurements of the intensity of fall-out gamma radiation as a function of time and distance from the Ivy Mike and King shots are reported. Instruments were placed around Eniwetok Atoll and at several atolls in a southerly semicircle with respect to Eniwetok. Contrary to expectatons the winds prevailing at the time of the Mike shot were south or southeasterly and no fall-out gamma radiation with the limits of detectibility was measured at any location other than Eniwetok. The gamma radiation measured on Eniwetok Atoll wa considered normal fission fragmen radiation which decayed with a t to the -1.2 power characteristic. (Author)
