English term or phrase: fallout
Definition from European Nuclear Society:
Radioactive material which falls back to the earth after the release into the atmosphere (e.g. by nuclear weapon tests, accidents). The fallout occurs in two forms: the close fallout consists of heavy particles which fall to the ground within some days near the place of release and in an area which, depending on the weather conditions, may reach up to several hundred kilometres in the wind direction. The world-wide fallout consists of lighter particles reaching higher atmospheric layers and distributed over a wide part of the earth because of atmospheric currents.

Example sentence(s):
  • Fallout creates large areas of contamination and the ionizing radiation coming off the fallout, which can damage tissues and penetrate through thin walls and glass US Department of Health & Human Services
  • The chemical properties of the different elements in the fallout will control the rate at which they are deposited on the ground. The less volatile elements will deposit first. Wikipedia
  • Weather conditions can affect fallout immensely. Particularly rainfall can "rain out" fallout to create very intense localized concentrations. University of Michigan
