Register for the TRB 99th Annual Meeting: Register Now


Gases, aerosols, and hydrosols are the forms of particulate matter which might be released from nuclearpowered ships. Methods for scavenging these materials were studied in detail. Visual and radar techniques were used in tracking gases and aeresols in the free atmosphere. Scavenging of radioactivity dispersed in substitute ocean water by a permanganate-ferrous salt system was studied. A schematic diagram of a pneumatic conveying system for this type of scavenging material is provided.
