Abstract : A method for calculating radar reflectivity of nuclear clouds is discussed. Assumptions relating cloud characteristics and data collection are explained and tables and curves depicting these data are presented. The calculation derives reflectivity by generating particle and moisture unit volumes of estimated reflectivity using collection data from previous tests and fall-out prediction studies. (Author)
