On the cover: A view from Bikini Island across the protective ocean reef. On 1 March 1954, the Bravo test (15 MT) at Bikini Atoll contaminated Bikini and other islands of the atolls to the east of Bikini. Work was done over many years to determine the significant radionuclides in each atoll ecosystem, identify critical exposure pathways, provide radiation dose assessments, and find ways to reduce the radiation dose to within U.S. and international guidelines for people who would resettle the atolls. See article by William L. Robison and Terry F. Hamilton on page 1 for more information.   LWW image
