Abstract:

This report describes some coordinated high-latitude experiments for simulating nuclear-burst effects on long-range VLF propagation. The program consists of six parts 1 Collection and study of VLF phase and amplitude data over six long-range, high-latitude VLF propagation paths and 2 middle latitude control paths 2 Collection and study of ionospheric data cosmic noise absorption data near Reykjavik, Iceland, and Thule, Greenland 3 Collection and study of other VLF data and ionospheric data from external sources including satellite data 4 Study and comparison of items 1 through 3 with nuclear test VLF data 5 Collection and study of rapid phase VLF data at Thule, Greenland and 6 Installation and operation of a patrol spectrograph to study polar glow auroral effects.
