Abstract : TERF is a Monte Carlo radiation transport code for computing gamma-ray dose due to fallout on non-uniform terrain. The code, as developed in this study, incorporates extensive geometry capabilities including the unique ability to convert elevation contour line data into three-dimensional terrain representations. A variety of calculations concerned with the effects on the dose of various terrain features, structures and vegetation, are described. (Author)
