appropriate weapon yield, and draw two additional arcs
across the fallout pattern. This is the area where fallout
will be most heavily deposited.
7. When the effective downwind speed is less than
8 KPH (5 knots), the predicted fallout areas of Zone I
and Zone II will be drawn circular around ground zero.
8. Complete the fallout plot by indicating the date-
of the message used, the yield and date-time of
burst, ground zero position, and scale of chart used.
Figure 5-8 is an example of a completed fallout plot
using the Ships Fallout Template.
What are the two types of radiological fallout
messages of most concern to Aerographers?
What factors determine the extent and severity of
a fallout contamination hazard area?
What type of nuclear burst produces the most
How are personnel operating in a NBC hazard
Zone II affected by radiation?
What is the average cloud radius (NM) of a
nuclear weapon in yield group "BRAVO"?
How is fallout arrival time determined?
Why is the Ships Fallout Template unscaled?
What information is contained in section "Z" of
a NAV NBC 3 NUC message?
What is the safety distance (NM) for a 3.5 kiloton
When the effective downwind speed is less than 5
knots, how are nuclear fallout patterns plotted
for hazard zones I and II?
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Define terms
associated with chemical warfare. Interpret the
information provided in a NATO chemical
downwind message (CDM). Plot the attack and
hazard area for the three basic chemical
