Beagle dogs and currently accepted physical air sampling equipment were exposed to the cloud produced by a nuclear cratering experiment to determine the deposition of radioactive iodine in organs of the biological sampler with that collected by the physical sampling devices. Primary emphasis is directed to the evaluation of such factors as isotopic ratios, rate of build-up, and the effect of the thyroid gland in concentrating iodine. The results, which indicated the selectivity of the biological sampler and the inefficiency of the physical samplers, are discussed. (Author)
