Ever wondered what would happen if You NUKED a Country. NUKE NUKEMAP lets you See the Fallout 

AIR BURST

Estimated fatalities:3,790,140Estimated injuries:4,028,540

In any given 24-hour period, there are approximately 12,989,318 people in the 1 psi range of the most recent detonation.


Modeling casualties from a nuclear attack is difficult. These numbers should be seen as evocative, not definitive. Fallout effects are ignored. For more information about the model,

Effects radii for 4 megaton airburst* (smallest to largest): ▼

Fireball radius: 1.68 km (8.89 km²)
Maximum size of the nuclear fireball; relevance to lived effects depends on height of detonation. If it touches the ground, the amount of radioactive fallout is significantly increased. Minimum burst height for negligible fallout: 1.51 km.

Radiation radius (500 rem): 2.96 km (27.5 km²)
500 rem radiation dose; without medical treatment, there can be expected between 50% and 90% mortality from acute effects alone. Dying takes between several hours and several weeks.

Air blast radius (20 psi): 4.48 km (63 km²)
At 20 psi overpressure, heavily built concrete buildings are severely damaged or demolished; fatalities approach 100%. Optimal height of burst to maximize this effect is 2.89 km.

Air blast radius (5 psi): 11 km (383 km²)
At 5 psi overpressure, most residential buildings collapse, injuries are universal, fatalities are widespread. Optimal height of burst to maximize this effect is 4.96 km.

Thermal radiation radius (3rd degree burns): 22.8 km (1,630km²)
Third degree burns extend throughout the layers of skin, and are often painless because they destroy the pain nerves. They can cause severe scarring or disablement, and can require amputation. 100% probability for 3rd degree burns at this yield is 12.2 cal/cm2.*Effects shown for multiple, different detonation altitudes.


Note: Rounding accounts for any inconsistencies in the above numbers.


Fallout: Your choice of burst height is too high to produce significant local fallout. The minimum burst height to produce appreciable fallout for a yield of 4 megaton is 1.51 km.

SURFACE

Estimated fatalities:2,382,330Estimated injuries:2,499,800

In any given 24-hour period, there are approximately 8,747,512 people in the 1 psi range of the most recent detonation.

Effects radii for 4 megaton surface burst (smallest to largest):

Fireball radius: 2.19 km (15 km²)
Maximum size of the nuclear fireball; relevance to lived effects depends on height of detonation. If it touches the ground, the amount of radioactive fallout is significantly increased.

Radiation radius (500 rem): 2.96 km (27.5 km²)
500 rem radiation dose; without medical treatment, there can be expected between 50% and 90% mortality from acute effects alone. Dying takes between several hours and several weeks.

Air blast radius (20 psi): 3.45 km (37.5 km²)
At 20 psi overpressure, heavily built concrete buildings are severely damaged or demolished; fatalities approach 100%.

Air blast radius (5 psi): 7.27 km (166 km²)
At 5 psi overpressure, most residential buildings collapse, injuries are universal, fatalities are widespread.

Thermal radiation radius (3rd-degree burns): 19.4 km (1,180km²)
Third-degree burns extend throughout the layers of skin and are often painless because they destroy the pain nerves. They can cause severe scarring or disablement and can require amputation. 100% probability for 3rd-degree burns at this yield is 12.2 cal/cm2.
