Abstract:

The report presents the cloud development data for the Pre-Schooner II high explosive cratering event conducted in a rhyolite medium in southwestern Idaho. Early base surge radius dimensions are given as a function of time in several directions, and are related to base surge cloud dimensions from past cratering experiments in alluvium and basalt. Measurements of base surge height, main cloud radius, and main cloud height are also given. Two new methods of cloud delineation are described 1 a laser-radar technique, and 2 a fluorescent particle tracer technique. Author
