Abstract : Calculations have been performed for the gamma-ray dose rate: (1) inside a uniformly contained Volume, as in a radioactive cloud or in contaminated water; (2) as a function of altitude above the center of a uniform contaminated circular island; and (3) as a function of altitude above uniformly contaminated water. The calculations have been performed for monoenergetic sources of 0.15, 0.30, 0.60, 1.2, and 2.5 Mev and for some experimentally observed fallout Spectra.
