Scope and Content

This series contains daily radiation surveillance reports that were taken at various locations across Utah. Records in this series documenting raw radiation levels exist for Beaver (1963-1968, 1970), Bryce Canyon (1965-1970), Cedar City (1962-1970), Delta (1965, 1967-1970), Dugway (1967-1970), Garrison (1967-1970), Logan (1967-1970), Moab(1967-1970), Monticello (1967-1970), Ogden (1966-1968, 1970), Parowan (1965-1968), Price(1966-1970), Provo (1965-1970), Richfield (1967-1970), Roosevelt (1964, 1968-1970), Salt Lake City (1967-1968, 1970-1974), St. George (1967-1968, 1970), Tooele (1970) and Wendover (1967-1968, 1970).

During the time that these daily surveillance reports were being compiled, Technical Data Surveillance Reports were also created. These included reports on Chinese, French and Soviet nuclear programs, as well as special nuclear programs that were carried out by the US, including Project Schooner, Project Rulison, Project Plowshares, Project Ferriswheel, Project Dribble as well as Nuclear Testing. These files include publications from the Atomic Energy Commission.

Files have also been compiled for Uranium as a byproduct in the production of Coal, Copper Smelting, Phosphate and Zirconium.

Arrangement

Chronological by year.

Research Note

Microfilming of this record series appears to have taken place in 1979. Restrictions on processing time prevented Archives staff from comparing reels to the hard copy record, so the decision was made to keep both the paper, as well as existing microfilm reels. Researchers may want to consider examining both sets of records to ensure that all existing information in this series is seen.
