The first Soviet atomic bomb test, which took place at Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan on 29 August 1949, was the most egregious test by far in terms of collective exposures to local fallout. This volume is devoted to this first, and to further nuclear weapon test explosions in the Semipalatinsk/Altai region. It analyses the environmental and human consequences of the radioactive fallout and presents detailed accounts, never published before in the West, of the methodologies of Russian scientists in source term analysis, dose reconstruction, and medical effects studies.

Nuclear Test Explosions Environmental and Human Impacts Edited by Sir Frederick Warner University of Essex, UK and Rene J.C. University of Liege, Belgium Nuclear Test Explosions summarises the findings of the international project SCOPE-RADTEST (Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment - RADiation from nuclear TEST explosions), on the environmental and human impacts of nuclear tests. The location and dates of 730 explosions and the 2419 tests performed between 1945 and 1998 are given followed by discussion of their effects. The nuclear test sites include: Nevada, Semipalatinsk, Novaya Zemlya, South Pacific, Australia and Lob Nor. The fallout from 541 atmospheric tests and effects on human health and environment are assessed and the development of nuclear weapons is described. The contents of the book have been assembled by a team of experts and should greatly assist in the discussion of weapons limitation.
