Office of Civil Defense


*Abstract*

This report summarizes the state of knowledge and concepts about the reaction of biological systems to effects of nuclear weapons under nuclear war conditions, about the likely extent of damage to agricultural and wildlife ecosystems under nuclear war conditions, and about the factors involved in the long-term recovery potential of these systems after damage. In the study, an attempt was made to organize the available information for objective discussion of the subject, to outline the state of the art regarding capabilities to use the information (as well as its availability), and to make estimates of radiological effects using the available data and available (or new) computational methods.

Summary/abstract:
  • This report summarizes the state of knowledge and concepts about the reaction of biological systems to effects of nuclear weapons under nuclear war conditions, about the likely extent of damage to agricultural and wildlife ecosystems under nuclear war conditions, and about the factors involved in the long-term recovery potential of these systems after damage. In the study, an attempt was made to organize the available information for objective discussion of the subject, to outline the state of the art regarding capabilities to use the information (as well as its availability), and to make estimates of radiological effects using the available data and available (or new) computational methods. For several assumed types of nuclear attack, the effects of the radiation from fallout in some areas of the country could result in fatal doses to all higher forms of life in exposed conditions. A few percent of the total land area of the country would likely be denuded of vegetation for a short period of time. However, the location and extent of these areas, with respect to other aspects of resource damage and economic recovery problems, are such that the ecological consequences of the biological damage in these areas could have little or no influence on national recovery. Essentially all of the economically important agricultural land is recoverable within the first year after attack for the case in which the existing shelter system is used.

Rich Fleetwood

Rich is the founder of SurvivalRing, now in it's 20th year, author of multimedia CDs and DVDs, loves the outdoors, his family, his geeky skill-set, and lives in rural Missouri, just a few miles from the Big Muddy. Always ready to help others, he shares what he learns on multiple blogs, social sites, and more. With a background in preparedness and survival skills, training with county, state, and national organizations, and skills in all areas of media and on air experience in live radio and television, Rich is always thinking about the "big picture", when it comes to helping individuals and families prepare for life's little surprises. Since 1997, he has provided guidance, authentic government survival history, and commentary on why we all need to get ready for that fateful day in the future, when we have to get our hands dirty and step in to save the day. He is an award winning videographer (2005 Telly Award), has received state and national scholarly recognition (2006 New Century Scholar and All USA Academic Team), and is a natural with computers, technology, gadgets, small furry mammals, and anything on wheels. Rich likes making friends, solving problems, and creating solutions to everyday issues. He doesn't mind mixing things up, when there is a teaching moment ready to happen. As a constitutional conservative, he's staying quite busy these days. The SurvivalRing Radio Show at www.survivalringradio.com will be coming back SOON!
