The port area of Vancouver and two simulated explosion sites (red circles) that released simulated radioactivity into the environment (highest being red lowering to blue on the perimeter).

See article by Gary H. Kramer and colleagues on page S55 for more information. Photograph courtesy of Google Imagery.
