The detection of nuclear explosions in the atmosphere has posed problems to the variety of techniques used to sense the resulting disturbances. Hence, the research covered by the subject contract was directed toward the extraction of intelligence from microbarographic signals. The principal objective was to improve the ability to determine the yield and height of burst of nuclear explosions in the atmosphere. Necessarily there were two related, intermediate objectives namely, to develop digital data processing techniques for detecting and analyzing signals recorded by microbarograph arrays, and to improve predictions of spectra and waveforms of acoustic-gravity waves as well as of their associated seismic surface waves.
