Washington DC: Department of the Army, 1973. First Edition thus, later (1975) printing. Wraps. Format is approximately 8.25 inches by 11 inches. Three-hole punched and staplebound. 80 pages. Illustrations (graphs, nomograms, diagrams, formulae). References. Cover has some wear and soiling. A few pencil marks noted inside. This manual supersedes TM 3-210, 3 December 1967, including all changes. Its contents address Introduction to Fallout Prediction, Detailed Fallout Prediction, Simplified Fallout Predictions, Fallout Prediction for Atomic Demolition Munitions, Friendly Nuclear Strike Warning Message, and References. This manual provides guidance in the preparation of detailed and simplified fallout predictions to commanders of all echelons within the Army and provides procedural guidance for those persons operating the Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Element (CBRE). The material in this manual is applicable to nuclear warfare conditions. This manual is in consonance with the international standardization agreements (STANAG) referenced within this manual. The need for a fallout prediction system stems form the large-area radiological contamination hazard that can develop from fallout-producing nuclear detonations. This large-area hazard is capable of producing mass casualties is its presence is not detected or if commanders at all echelons do not understand its effects and take action to minimize these effects. Thus, fallout has a considerable impact on military planning and operations.
