In the most seriously affected zones, the concentration of radioactivity in affected groundwater reaches millions of picocuries per liter. Caesium gamma-ray sources that have been encased in metallic housings can be mixed-in with scrap metal on its way to smelters, resulting in production of steel contaminated with radioactivity. Of these, five handled the debris. It is used as a gamma emitter for oilfield wireline density measurements. The parties also reaffirmed their obligations to comply fully with the Limited Test Ban Treaty of

    Calculations by Bassler showed that digging a canal or Operation TUMBLER-SNAPPER would be too expensive, therefore Bassler determined that the use of 1952 book explosive devices, to excavate the canal or tunnel, would be the most economical.

Reports on the successful Soviet use of nuclear explosions in extinguishing out-of-control gas well fires were widely cited in United States policy discussions of options for stopping the Gulf of Mexico Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Report emphasis is on the radiological safety of the personnel.
