Some problems in nuclear meteorology

  • B. I. Styro

Abstract

A group of problems associated with radioactive contamination of the atmosphere is discussed. Principal attention is given to the study of natural radioactivity and to those phenomena which are closely connected with meteorology or which assist in the solution of a number of meteorological problems. While setting forth the results obtained thus far, several questions are raised which need investigation.
