Abstract : Operations were conducted to obtain information by aerial, automotive, and ground monitoring radiological surveys for the purpose of evaluating and correlating the data and methods. The results of the aerial surveys have been evaluated, and correlation factors have been developed for the CD V-710 meter which permit the interpolation of aerial readings as groundlevel radiation intensities within a range of =50 per cent. The feasibility and practicability of aerial survey as a radiological monitoring tool was established. The CD V-710 was established as a practical interim aerial-survey instrument. The development of an instrument having greater suitability for aerial monitoring than present civil defense instruments is encouraged. It is recommended that further aerialsurvey operational studies be conducted at any future continental test series. (Author)
