    Abstract

    Experimental results obtained from investigation of the radionuclide distribution in the environment around the 0.75-kiloton nuclear test Cambric, fired in alluvium at the Nevada Test Site, are presented and discussed. Laboratory measurements of distribution ratios for sorption-desorption between alluvium and ground-water and leaching rates from test debris are also presented and compared with field data.
