Distribution in groundwater of radionuclides from underground nuclear explosions


, : Distribution in groundwater of radionuclides from underground nuclear explosions. U S

Underground nuclear explosions in the Plowshare Program release and distribute radionuclides in the medium by direct explosive action, but the long-lived and biologically significant radionuclides later may enter into and move with ground water. No significant post-explosion movement of radionuclides has been demonstrated where adequate precautions have been taken as in the Nevada Test Site and Project Gnome area, but radioactive waste disposal operations have shown transport of radionuclides for considerable distances by ground water. Each proposed site must be evaluated individually for prediction of possible radionuclide contamination of ground water and to insure the absence of hydrologic and geologic conditions favorable to such contamination.
