Abstract : Radiation Transport from a fast burst reactor has been measured from 60 to 2000 meters. Emphasis was placed on the measurement of thermal neutrons, but both fast neutrons and gamma rays were monitored. Effects investigated were sensitivity to angle of emission from the reactor, height over ground, and proximity to trees.
