Tables include nuclear fallout from the following shot series: Ranger, Buster-Jangle, Tumbler-Snapper, Upshot-Knothole, Teapot, Plumbbob, Hardtack II and Nougat through Bowline.

Fallout data includes the major underground detonations such as Sedan and Schooner as well as the Baneberry venting accident of December, 1970.Information was based in part upon Iodine-131 values published online on Oct 4, 1997 as part of the National Cancer Institute publication: Estimated Exposures and Thyroid Doses Received by the American People from Iodone-131 in Fallout following the Nevada Atmospheric Nuclear Bomb tests.

These values were evaluated using total fallout values for individual nuclear tests found in the 1981 Livermore Laboratory publication, Results of Calculations of External Gamma Radiation Exposure Rates from Fallout and the Related Radionuclide Compositions: Operations Ranger, Buster-Jangle, Tumbler and Snapper, Upshot-Knothole, Teapot, Plumbbob, Hardtack II (1958), Nougat through Bowline, and Nuclear test Baneberry.The tables found in this series of books offer the widest range of fallout values currently available to the public.

For example, the range of values for the county of Spokane WA extends from 13.6 nCi/sq meter (28 April 1955 on the 14th day of shot TP-9 (code-named MET) to a high of 12,278.4 nCi/sq meter (26 July, 1957) from the third day of shot PB-6 (from shots KEPLER AND OWENS.)
