Situation: In order to accomplish your mission, you must correctly compute the total dose of radiation
in the area of concern. This will allow the crossing of the fallout area without risk of casualties.
Which nuclear data is required to compute the total dose of radiation using the total dose (fallout)
Dose rates averaged
Time of burst
Dose rate referenced to H + 1
Yield of the weapon
What is the purpose of the index scale on the total dose (fallout) nomogram?
To determine the total dose for nonstandard decay radiation
As a pivoting point between the Te, Ts, R1 and D scales
As a conversion scale for transmission factors
To compensate for decay of radiation
The total dose of radiation received by personnel crossing a fallout area is calculated using the
total dose nomogram by converting the maximum dose rate to which item?
A transmission factor
An average dose rate
An adjusted time of stay
A correlation factor
