Abstract:

Event Mineral Rock, a 100 ton H. E. surface burst on granite provided an assortment of crater debris data. Analysis of these data produced the following A size-to-weight relation, given either the length, area, or volume of a particle a given size subgroup within the range of fine .476 in particles represents an increasing cumulative percent of existing fine debris as radial distance increases rock breaks up fairly randomly normalized ratios of width to length and thickness to length are less than .7 and .4, respectively particles become longer and thinner with increasing weight an aerial photo study tends to define rocks longer than they are.
