During this reporting period January 1, 1963, to January 1, 1964, above and below surface effects of underwater explosions were investigated through use of exploding wire equipment. A correlation between bubble phases and deposition of debris was sought and a means was devised to measure debris concentration in certain water column areas. The report includes data obtained from underwater bubble studies and a description of the apparatus being prepared for the above surface investigation. Data from more than sixty underwater bubble experiments was obtained. Underwater debris deposition was studied by means of high speed motion picutres of wires exploded in light mineral oil. Above surface effects of radioactive exploding wires submerged in scintillation solution are being investigated by means of a sensitive photoelectric scanner.
