Sample Collection – Fallout debris decays rapidly within days or even hours shortly after detonation. Early samples contain more quickly-decaying isotopes that may have high value to nuclear forensic analysis. The specialized and well-exercised sampling team includes evidence collection specialists, nuclear scientists, communications specialists, hazardous material officers, health physicists and medical personnel. NDT-2 soldiers, Staff Sgt. Maliek Kearney and Sgt. Danielle Doucette, transfer a sample from a hand-held vacuum into a container while DOE’s Ruth Anne Sorter, a health physicist technician, observes.
