Abstract : A great deal of fallout reclamation-performance data has been 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 useable form. As a first step toward correcting the situation, Volume I presented 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. Volume II (contained herein) is devoted to the evaluation and reorganization of the above compilation into a form compatible with the preplanning of radiological recovery operations. The results are tabulated so as to show the response of various reclamation methods' performance to such parameters as rate of coverage, effort expended, climatic conditions, surface characteristics and fallout properties.
