Abstract:

Theoretical work included mathematical-computational simulation of an air wave propagating around the earth. The effect of horizontal variations of wind and temperature was included. These explain the severe defocussing always observed at the antipodes. Observational work included installation and operation of an LTV-LASA type microbarograph. Regular inspection of the records revealed a nuclear explosion and numerous incompletely understood meteorologic phenomena. Computer programs have been written and documented for reading LASA data tapes and Stanford data tapes.
