The Nagasaki-Hirsohima attacks were Atmospheric Bursts which have no Fall-out. That statement was and is WRONG! Just look at old newsreel films
or photographs, and you'll see why!
In the case of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the devices were exploded 500 meters above GZ. In other words, both were Airbursts. This is characterised by
the 'doughnut' shaped cloud forming above GZ.
However at the same time, a 'stem' of evaporated radioactive materiels from GZ slowly rises until it meets the doughnut cloud. The two 'forms'
continue to rise for several thousands of feet in the familiar 'mushroom' shaped cloud.
Therefore your initial statement about the lack of radiation is, I am afraid, factually incorrect, as both detonations caused massive residual
Ground Zero: Ground Zero is defined as: 'A place on which, above which or below which' a nuclear detonation occurs.
Types of Nuclear Explosions:
A Ground Burst is said to have taken place, if the nuclear device is detonated at GZ or if the resulting fireball touches the surface of the earth;
An Air Burst is said to have taken place if the detonation occurs above the earth's surface and the resulting fireball does not come into contact
with the earth;
A Subterranean Burst is said to have taken place if a nuclear device is detonated below ground level, irrespective of whether the fireball breaks the
earth's surface or not.
An Exo-Atmospheric Burst is said to have occurred when a nuclear device is detonated above the earth's atmosphere.
