Abstract : The Defense Land Fallout Interpretive Code (DELFIC) was used to determine the sensitivity of fallout predictions to input meteorological data. Weapon yields considered were 1 KT, 10 KT, 100 KT, and 1 MT. Burst locations were Washington, DC, and Seattle, Washington. Forecasted, observed, and degraded meteorological data inputs were considered. (Author)
