Marshall Islands Nuclear Test Reports

I came across an article about the United States government considering the release of secret nuclear test era reports. The US conducting nuclear testing in the Marshall Islands from 1946 to 1958. Of course, considering to release the documents and actually releasing them are two separate actions. In fact, a nuclear fallout report on the 1954 test series that included the Bravo hydrogen bomb test at Bikini was released in the mid-1990s, no information on fallout from the later test series has yet been made public.

If the U.S. government releases these documents, it will be the first declassification of reports on the Marshall Islands nuclear program in more than 15 years.
