Abstract:

Four different chemical explosives were detonated at a depth of 70 feet in Mono Lake, California for the purpose of comparing their efficiency in generating seismic signals. The hydroacoustic shock waves were examined to determine source levels, for comparison with received seismic signal levels. Excellent agreement between hydroacoustic and seismic signal levels were observed.
