Abstract

Erratum

In the paper entitled, “Updated Emergency Response Guidance for the First 48 h after the Outdoor Detonation of an Explosive Radiological Dispersal Device,” by Musolino et al., which appear in the July 2013 issue, the footnote at the bottom of the right-hand column on page 68 was inserted in the wrong place. The footnote should have appeared on p. 69 as follows:

“Therefore, rapid mapping of the near-field pattern with radiation survey instruments versus modeling is vital to managing the exposure of responders, protecting the public, and gaining insight to the character and scale of the contamination. ‡‡

‡‡ For example, the Department of Homeland Security offers a smartphone application, RadResponder, that collects data and performs mapping.”
