Abstract:

A possible explanation is given for the great time duration of intermediate-period about one minute and short-period less than one minute acoustic-gravity waves received from nuclear explosions. It is suggested that the signal delay for intermediate periods may be due to refraction from large- scale weather fronts, and that the signal delay for short periods may be caused by commonly occurring wind ducts.
