3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

DELFIC-TES computes the transit gamma exposure from the airborne cloud resulting from a nuclear burst for fixed targets located on or above the earth's surface.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The system is based on a method of producing "snapshots" of the moving cloud of airborne particles during the transport process of DELFIC. Each particle in each snapshot is then  assigned an activity and these data are used to calculate transit exposure by employing an energy-dependent buildup factor technique.
