Abstract:

Lidar laser radar observations from an aircraft of the cloud of debris resulting from the Pre-GONDOLA 2 explosion at Fort Peck, Montana, are described. From the lidar observations the location, shape, and internal structure in terms of variations of density of the cloud at the flight level were determined at five successive times, extending some 37 minutes after the explosion and some 17 kilometers downwind.
