Abstract:

During the months of July through September, 1968 a series of atmospheric nuclear explosions was detonated by France in the South Pacific. The events from that series analyzed in the report are those of July 7, July 15, August 3, August 24, and September 8, 1968. The analysis includes matched filtering for relative amplitude measurements, body and surface wave magnitude comparisons, phased summing, and ARZ-ERZ measurements Turnbull and Lambert, 1968. The events are discussed individually with a summary of pertinent data presented in several figures and tables.
