Abstract:

Four microbarograph stations recorded waves at a range of approximately 130 mi from a row charge of high explosives buried near optimum cratering depth. Comparison with propagations from three airburst calibration detonations showed that a source model derived from close-in data was appropriate for distant effects predictions. This model predicted that wave amplitudes from explosives at this scaled depth would be 20 of amplitudes expected for a free air burst. All amplitudes perpendicular to a row charge are proportional to the 0.7 power of the number of charges in the row.
