Radioactivity in Trinitite six decades later

Radioactivity in Trinitite six decades later

Given the recent discussion about radioactive
materials, People on this list might be interested in
the PDF version of a paper about the radioactivity
of trinitie that can be found online. It is:

Parekh, P. P., T. M. Semkow, M. A. Torres, D. K. Haines,
J. M. Cooper, P. M. Rosenberg, and M. E. Kitto, 2006,
