Abstract:

Part of a continuing study on the detection of high-altitude nuclear explosions. The Memorandum reports on low-frequency hydromagnetic waves similar to those generated by such explosions, and detectable by ground-current measurements at worldwide locations. Particular attention is given to the response of the ionosphere to such low-frequency hydromagnetic disturbances. The purpose is to separate the effects of the medium from those of the source on the transmitted disturbance. Author
