Abstract : This report describes the activities of DoD personnel, both military and civilian, in Shot HOOD, the sixth nuclear test in the PLUMBBOB atmospheric weapons testing series. The test was conducted on 5 July 1957 and involved participants from Exercise Desert Rock VII, AFSWP, AFSWC, and AEC test groups. This volume also describes the radiological safety criteria and procedures in effect at Shot HOOD. At the time of the first edition of SHOT HOOD, the after-action report describing the Marine brigade exercise (Provisional Atomic Exercise Brigade, Report of Exercise Desert Rock VII, Marine Corps) had not been located. For this edition, the after-action report has been used to corroborate, to correct, and to supplement accounts of the troop exercise drawn from planning documents and interviews. This has resulted in substantial revision of section 2.2.
