General descriptionedit

Operation Dew took place from 1951-1952 off the southeast coast of the United States, including near Georgia, and North and South Carolina12 Operation Dew consisted of two sets of trials, Dew I and Dew II2 The tests involved the release of 250 pounds 110 kg of fluorescent particles from a minesweeper off the coast1 Operation Dew I was described in a US Army report known as "Dugway Special Report 162", dated August 1, 19522 The purpose of Operation Dew was to study the behavior of aerosol-released biological agents1

Dew Iedit

Operation Dew I consisted of five separate trials from March 26, 1952 until April 21, 1952 that were designed to test the feasibility of maintaining a large aerosol cloud released offshore until it drifted over land, achieving a large area coverage2 The tests released zinc cadmium sulfide along a 100-to-150-nautical-mile 190 to 280 km line approximately 5 to 10 nautical miles 10 to 20 km off the coast of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina2 Two of the trials dispersed clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide over large areas of all three US states The tests affected over 60,000 square miles 150,000 km² of populated coastal region in the US southeast3 The Dew I releases were from a Navy minesweeper, the USS Tercel2

Dew IIedit

Dew II involved the release of fluorescent particles zinc cadmium sulfide and plant spores Lycopodium from an aircraft2 Dew II was described in a 1953 Army report which remained classified at the time of a 1997 report by the US National Research Council concerning the US Army's zinc cadmium sulfide dispersion program of the 1950s2
