Trinity Test Fallout Pattern

Trinity Fallout Map

The fireball created by the explosion touched the ground and vaporized large amounts of soil. These relatively heavy particles, highly radioactive, fell out of the cloud quickly, causing a fair amount of local fallout. Delayed or long-distance fallout was relatively small, though it was high enough to cause defects to appear on film as far away as New York.
