We are currently gathering and sorting through large collections of pdf documents and links collected over years of independent research efforts in the US coming from various active contributors and we will post them in segments. If you feel you have documents to contribute, please contact us before forwarding. We will not sort this information by nation at this time in the LIBRARY since there is so much need for the information across borders. important resources by nation will be added to each INTERNATIONAL page. We will identify them as best we can when posting, so please provide that information and any known copyright text as appropriate with your submission.
U.S. Nuclear Testing Archive
The Nevada Field Office (NFO) of the NNSA opened the Coordination and Information Center – now referred to as the Nuclear Testing Archive to collect and make available all historical documents, records, and data dealing with radioactive fallout from all U.S. testing of nuclear devices. Collects and consolidates historical documents, records, and data for long-term preservation. Includes documentation on the detection and measurement of radioactive fallout and the related factors resulting from nuclear test device activities at the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS), the Trinity event, the Pacific Proving Grounds, and other on-continent test locations, as well as information on the health effects of radiation and various related scientific and technical studies and reports.
This collection of over 386,000 documents is available to the public through use of the Nuclear Testing Archive Public Reading Facility. Maintains more than 40,000 documents relating to Human Radiation Experiments by our predecessor, the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), as well as over 346,000 documents dealing with the U.S. nuclear testing program. Can be accessed through OpenNet. Also maintains the complete DOE Human Radiation Experiments collection. These documents are available in full text retrieval through DOE Human Radiation Experiments site, above. Normal library services, such as assistance in locating documents, are provided at no charge. Other services, such as copying and proxy research by staff, will be provided according to a fee schedule.
The Nuclear Testing Archive has approximately 100 unclassified historical nuclear weapons testing videos. To obtain a list of videos, please contact the NTA at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (702) 794-5106 or 1-877-DOE-FILM (1-877-363-3456).
Adverse Reproductive Outcomes in Families of Atomic Veterans
Committee to Study the Feasibility of, and Need for, Epidemiologic Studies of Adverse Reproductive Outcomes in the Families of Atomic Veterans Over the past several decades, public concern over exposure to ionizing radiation has increased. This concern has manifested itself in different ways depending on the perception of risk to different individuals and different groups and the circumstances of their exposure. One such group are those U.S. servicemen (the “Atomic Veterans” who participated in the atmospheric testing of nuclear weapons at the Nevada Test Site or in the Pacific Proving Grounds, who served with occupation forces in or near Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or who were prisoners of war in or near those cities at the time of, or shortly after, the atomic bombings. This book addresses the feasibility of conducting an epidemiologic study to determine if there is an increased risk of adverse reproductive outcomes in the spouses, children, and grandchildren of the Atomic Veterans.
Hardcopy Version at National Academies Press
This report reevaluates the health risks of ionizing radiation in light of data that have become available since the 1980 report on this subject was published.
The data include new, much more reliable dose estimates for the A-bomb survivors, the results of an additional 14 years of follow-up of the survivors for cancer mortality, recent results of follow-up studies of persons irradiated for medical purposes, and results of relevant experiments with laboratory animals and cultured cells. It analyzes the data in terms of risk estimates for specific organs in relation to dose and time after exposure, and compares radiation effects between Japanese and Western populations.National Research Council (US) Committee on the Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation (BEIR V).
