Abstract
IF U.S. NAVY SURFACE COMBATANTS SURVIVE THE EARLY EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPON BURSTS SUCH AS AIRBLAST, THERMAL, ABIS, AND UNDEX, THERE IS STILL A REMAINING THREAT FROM THE BASE SURGE. THIS THREAT IS COUNTERED BY AN ON BOARD WASHDOWN SYSTEM. THIS STUDY WILL DETERMINE THE REGIONS OF THE BATTLE ZONE WHICH ARE (OR ARE NOT) DOMINATED BY THE BASE SURGE AND ASSESS THE BENEFIT DERIVED FROM SUCH WASHDOWN SYSTEMS.
