On the cover: Results of Naval Medical Research Institute (NMRI) survey readings in mR/hr at (a) Nagasaki on 15-27 October 1945 and (b) Hiroshima on 1-2 November 1945. The NMRI survey team used a Geiger-Müller type instrument constructed in-house with most measurements taken 1 m above the ground. Reference: McRaney W, McGahan J.
