Abstract : The report describes the preparation of synthetic fallout. Methods are discussed for simulating selected properties of radioactive fallout so that experiments can be conducted to evaluate radiological hazards. The experiments measured solubility of radionuclides which would be available to cycle in the food chains. Heating the fallout particles to high temperatures reduced the solubility of all nuclides studied. The methods described can be used by other researchers to prepare synthetic fallout with selected solubility and availability properties. (Author)
