Abstract : A great deal of fallout reclamation-performance data was generated over the past decade that is useful to planners of radiological recovery operations. Because it was contained in a variety of reports and documents prepared by different agencies, this material was neither convenient to Civil Defense planners nor was it always available in a comprehensible form. As a first step toward correcting the situation, the volume presents a tabular data compilation summarizing the performance of land reclamation methods and equipment. The tabled entries were gathered from 18 different experiments and field operations. They include those operational and environmental factors known to influence reclamation effectiveness. (Author)
