Product Description

Includes 11 figures, 137 tables, 135 formulas, 166 2D maps and 94 3D maps showing where the nuclear fallout landed. It took 15 years for the NCI to analyze, compile and publish county-by-county exposure data information regarding radioactive iodine (Iodine-131) from nuclear fallout. However, radioactive iodine-131 makes up only two percent of the isotopes in nuclear fallout. Environmental exposure specialist Richard L. Miller wondered about the other 98 percent of the radioactive isotopes in fallout. So, using the NCI data as a starting point, Miller calculated the TOTAL FALLOUT deposition from every major aboveground nuclear test for every county in the United States. The book shows the paths the nuclear clouds took after leaving the Nevada Test Site, and the more than 10,000 cities, towns and villages in the path of the clouds. The book also includes lists of each nuclear test's specific or unusual isotopes. Counties are ranked by fallout and rainout potential, and a special section shows which counties received the most Cobalt-60, Cesium-137, Beryllium-7 or Uranium-237. Three-dimensional maps are used to show fallout and radioisotope levels in specific regions of the country, including the West, Midwest, South and East Coast. In addition, the top 15 counties are ranked for exposure to 45 different radioisotopes, from Beryllium-7 through Zirconium-95. In addition, the book includes a section titled Nuclear Fallout and Cancer. Using three different statistical techniques, the author evaluates the nationwide association between nuclear fallout and most of the cancers listed in the National Cancer Institute's recent Cancer Atlas. A special section is included that analyzes the association between cancer and fallout for the 513 Midwestern counties in the states of Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. In this section are also included tables discussing toxicities and half-lives of the radionuclides found in fallout. ! There, the reader will learn that many fallout isotopes, such as Strontium-90 and Americium-241, remain long after the aboveground nuclear testing ended. If you want to know where you home county ranks in terms of nuclear fallout, this is the book to read. There are 10,000 cities, towns and villages listed along with every U.S. county (even one that no longer exists). County deposition values are included for Total Fallout as well as the top 15 US counties for following radioactive fallout components: beryllium-7, sodium-24, manganese-24, iron-59, cobalt-60, copper-64, bromine-82, bromine-83, strontium-89, strontium-90, yttrium-90, yttrium-91, niobium-95, niobium-95m, zirconium-95, molybdenum-99, technectium-99m, ruthenium-106, silver-109m, palladium-111m, paladium-112, silver-112, cadmium-115, indium-115m, indium-117, antimony-126, tellurium-127m, iodine-130, iodine-131, iodine-132, iodine-133, iodine-135, cesium-137, barium-137, lanthanum-141, cerium-144, samarium-153, Europium-155, terbium-161, tungsten-181, tungsten-185, gold-198, gold-199, uranium-237, neptunium-239, uranium-240, Americium-241 and Curium-242..
