Abstract:

This technical report summarizes the research done in a 12 month program directed toward understanding observed m sub b and yield biases at the Nevada Test Site. This program has necessarily included work on seismic source functions, variations in attenuation, frequency dependence of Q, regional amplitude and waveform variations, and shallow structural influences on seismic wave propagation. The report is divided into six sections, each describing an individual research effort on one or more of these issues. 1 Seismic Source Functions and Attenuation from Observations of Pahute Mesa Events 2 Observational Studies of the Piledriver and Hard Hat Tests 3 Frequency Dependence of Seismic Attenuation A Mechanism to Unite Amplitude and Spectral Ratio Techniques 4 Estimation of Receiver Functions for Stations Located at the NTS 5 Studies of Outgoing Seismic Energy from Yucca Flats, NTS and 6 Amplitude Studies of the Stations OB2, RKON and HNME Relative to the WWSSN Mean.
