Project Secede is an ARPA program aimed at solving certain defense related problems through the study of chemical releases in the ionosphere. The chemical of primary interest has been barium. The aspects of the release which are of most interest include the growth of the cloud and the evolution of its striated structure. Several test series of releases have been conducted the latest of which was Secede II. The present report concerns data obtained during Secede II by an optical interferometer. The report consists of a number of data volumes and this one summary textual volume. Interferometer data on events Spruce, Olive, Redwood and Plum has been reduced and photographs of representative IO records on Spruce have been made. The interferometer data is presented in detail in the Event Data Books published separately while the IO records on Spruce are reproduced in this volume.
