Abstract
Radioactive fallout represents nuclear debris deposited on the ground from the atmosphere. Although most fallout originates from tests of nuclear weapons, some may also arise from specific nuclear operations. Depending on the method of deposition, fallout is characterized as dustout--deposition of dry solids; rainout--carried by rainfall; or snowout--deposited by snowfall. The report disucsses the effects of fallout on water, plants and soils.
