Abstract : Measurements of gamma-radiation flux versus time, time-integrated gamma-radiation flux, time-integrated neutron flux with energy-sensitive detectors, air pressure, time-integrated radiant energy, radiant-energy flux with some spectral response, and gaseous electrical conductivity in and near an atomic fireball are reported. These measurements were made in support of weapon vulnerability studies.
