- ALL NAVY PERSONNEL Exposed to Radium for EYE TESTS 1944-1951 – The Navy wanted to test for night vision, so they used a device called the Radium Plaque Adaptometer that used a slab of radium as the light source and exposed all Navy Personnel to this device directed at their eyes and head every 6 months from 1944 to 1951
1946 – has its own page as there were extensive work done in trying to clean up the ships used in the nuclear tests in the Pacific. Since this was all brand new, and unexpected, the Navy needlessly exposed the dock workers and the people of San Francisco to nuclear radiation and contamination from sandblasting radioactive ships, with the radioactive dust traveling all over the bay area as well as dumping radioactive materials including Plutonium directly into San Francisco Bay. They did not understand the long term effects of Radiation and at the start of this, they only had 2 working Geiger Counters for the entire expedition.
- Dumping Nuclear Waste Directly into San Francisco Bay, the Cover UP, NAVY REPORT 10 December 1946 – Navy Report on Operation Crossroads where they discus dumping nuclear waste directly into San Francisco Bay and they initiate the creation of the USNRDL, the US Navy Radiological Defense Laboratory at Hunters Point Shipyard to take over from the Manhattan Project and figure out ways to clean up ships and defense facilities after an atomic bomb blast. This involved purposely contaminating decommissioned military bases in the Bay Area including Hunters Point Shipyard, Treasure Island, San Bruno, Pittsburg, Dublin, the Farallon Islands and the Monterrey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, in their efforts to train and figure out how to clean up after an atomic bomb explosion.

- The Navy Nuked Itself in Operation Crossroads Baker Test – All the ships including the support ships were irradiated in the Bikini Island blast and they needed to be decontaminated so they sent them to San Francisco Bay to be cleaned using acid and sandblasting, thus spreading radioactive waste all over the city.

This video also points out that the operation crossroads procedure of having ships spray the ship to wash it down resulted in dangerous levels of radiation onto Naval Personnel manning those ships.
- Fort Mason in San Francisco received nuclear materials from Atomic Energy Commission and NRC – All Military Bases, Ships, etc conducted radiological training to clean up after a strike. They received radioactive isotopes from the Atomic Energy Commission and later by the Department of Energy or the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. This problem of radioactive contamination is nationwide and unfortunately most bases buried their radioactive materials in and around their ammunition bunkers or firing ranges where explosions can further contaminate large areas.

- TI-Alpha Field simulator 1962-1963 Navy developed a radio based device to mimic the effect of an alpha particle emitter, and a radio based detector with all of the same controls as an actual alpha particle detection device in order to save the students and particularly the teachers from being over exposed to radiation in any particular year. Before this device the instructors refused to conduct this test as it had a heavy exposure to radiation. But these devices are a simulator and so if these devices are used by contractors to try to find radiation, they will always not find it as they are not made to find real alpha contamination. They are simulators. So in order to find out if a survey is made, you need to know exactly what devices were used and they must be subject to inspection.

Instead of removing the objects when they found them, the Navy decided to bury them and thus exposed everyone to the radiation for 11 years. When they removed the radioactive objects from the boxes, they placed them on slabs of concrete in the open air to dry them as they were soaked in the water table, thus directly exposing everyone to the radiation. In 2021 they are finding other objects mixed in with munitons including a Japanese mortar shell which they are detonating on the site thus further exposing the residents to the radiation. One of the is 30 REMS per year.
- TI- City of San Francisco application to Harass and Kill take Marine Mammals to build Ferry Pier on Treasure Island
Harbor seal, California sea lion, bottlenose dolphin and Harbor porpoise spatially co-occur with the activity to the degree that take is reasonably likely to occur, and we are authorizing take of these species. For gray whale, northern fur seal and northern elephant seal, occurrence is such that take is possible, and we are also authorizing take of these species. All species that could potentially occur in the proposed survey areas are included in San Francisco’s IHA application (see application, Table 2). Humpback whales could potentially occur in the area. However the spatial and temporal occurrence of this species is very rare, the species is readily observed, and the applicant would shut down pie driving if humpback whales enter the project area. Thus take is not expected to occur, and they are not discussed further.
