Abstract : Radiochemical data on fallout samples from three high-yield surface bursts have been correlated by a method of log-log plotting. The correlations were comparable with those available for similar burst conditions. (Freiling, E. C., 'Radionuclide fractionation in bomb debris,' Science, 133:991 (1961)). The results presented in this report confirm the utility of the method and indicate the strong effects of fractionation on the radiochemical composition of fallout from surface bursts. (Author)
