During the years 1963-1975, military scientists from the Microbiological Resaerch Establisment, Porton Down, conducted circa 90 public area Biological
Warfare (BW) experiments in southern England.
During the field trials, massive aerosols of two types of live bacteria (E.coli MRE162 and Bacillus globigii) were sprayed from a ship, which sailed a
straight-line track a few miles off the coast of southern England. These enormous bacterial clouds would be carried on shore by the wind and were
sampled up to 50 miles inland by mobile teams of Porton Down scientists.
The extent of these public area Biological Warfare experiments can be viewed in this animation (click on link below). This contains many maps taken
from recently declassified Porton Down scientific reports.
