Abstract This Biological Effects of Nuclear Explosions (BENE) Domain Guide presents relevant documentation, references, and bibliographic citations for the student and researcher interested in original test documentation in the BENE phenomenology area. This document reflects the effort of some two decades of work to organize and review the atmospheric test documentation and Nuclear Test Personnel Review (NTPR) data managed by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). This effort was led by Dr. David Auton, who died before this Guide's completion. This effort is dedicated to his memory. Dr. Glen Reeves of Applied Research Associates added information and edited and updated the initial document.
