Collections of radioactive debris were made daily at 120 Weather Bureau stations throughout the United States during the atomic test series in Nevada in the Spring of 1952. The measuring techniques employed and the meteorological factors involved in the transport and deposition of debris are discussed. Several examples of the relation of computed meteorological trajectories to actual observations of debris are given.
