Abstract : Operationally, Sandia Laboratory's instrumentation program consisted of shelter installations, gauge installation, and the associated liaison and logistics. These projects were concerned with blast air pressures, temperatures, winds, and underwater pressures. The area covered by the measurements extended along the Eniwetok Atoll from Gene to Elmer for which seven shelter installations were made. All shelters were used on Mike shot, and two were used on King shot. A total of 125 electronic information channels were attempted.
