    External exposure measurements at Bikini Atoll
    (Brookhaven National Laboratory, 1979-01) Greenhouse, N. A. ; Miltenberger, R. P. ; Lessard, E. T.
    External exposure rate surveys from 1975 to 1977 on the ilsands Nam, Eneu and Bikini of Bikini Atoll gave average external exposure rates of 24, 5.7 and 32 μR/hr respectively. The exposure rate on Eneu Island is uniform, whereas those on Bikini and Nam range from 7.0 to 80. μR/hr due to debris and fallout from the 1954 BRAVO incident. This corresponds to a 30 year dose equivalent of 2.8 rem.
