Abstract : A radiation survey was made in the area of the Thresher sinking using the DUNC underwater gamma spectrometer. Any release of fission products added less than 3% to the normal radioactivity of the water. Other, less sensitive, gamma spectrometers were used to survey larger areas and to test points on the bottom. No fission products were found. (Author)
