The effects of oxygen on the radiation response of Artemia eggs in a dried state was examined by using a high-vacuum system. As a procedure to measure the oxygen effect, eggs were dried at 5× 10-5 Torr for 7 hr, exposed to gases, and left overnight. Under these conditions, an oxygen enhancement ratio of 17 was found for the reduction of hatchability to 50%.
