Abstract:

Pressure vs time data from a 100-hydrophone array were obtained at or near shock wave caustics in the ocean on 76 shots. Sources of the shock waves were 8-lb charges fired at depths from 400 to 1000 feet. Most measurements were made at a convergence zone about 30 miles from the source a few measurements were made 3 to 5 miles from the source. Preparations for and operations at sea are described, but pressure-time data will be presented separately. Author
