Abstract
Calculations of the free-field neutron and secondary gamma-ray environments generated by the detonation of tactical standard-fission-weapons have been made for air-over-ground and air-over-seawater geometries. These data have been combined with previously published calculations of the radiation environments due to the primary prompt gamma-ray component, in order to predict the total radiation intensities induced along the air-ground interface, for various heights of weapon burst.
