We were addressed by General Farrell who told us more specifically that our mission was to prove that there was no radioactivity from the bomb. Faculty of Engineering, Hiroshima University, Japan. 137Cs Concentration in Soil Samples from an Early Survey of Hiroshima Atomic Bomb and Cumulative Dose Estimation from the Fallout. Country; Japan Language; English Cesium 137 decays by Beta and Gamma radiation.
This time delay does not explain why Japanese researchers studying returned soil and other samples from Hiroshima and Nagasaki have found fission products while Shimizu reports that in 1945 he found neutron induced beta radiation, “no acceptable alpha” and acknowledges fission fallout only in areas affected by the Black Rain. Takeshita, K.; Antoku, S.; Sunayashiki, T.; Tabuchi, A. You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed.
Recent sources of papers, dating from 1972, analyzing samples collected by the early Japanese survey teams and which identify fission fallout products in Hiroshima and Nagasaki include: Cesium-137 in Placentae, Urine, Food and Rain in Hiroshima.

This is particularly applicable in dating sediment accumulation rates for geohazard analysis in subsea engineering projects.The Cs fallout connected with the nuclear weapon testing based on the precipitation data.Moreover, this study also indicated that the spatial variability on the highly contaminated by Chernobyl cesium study area is small (RSD about 10%) and thus it is possible to use the cesium method to study soil redistribution.*Prices in US$ apply to orders placed in the Americas only.Prices in GBP apply to orders placed in Great Britain only.
