Methodologies are formulated to predict to magnitudes of high- explosive explosions phenomena for various high-explosive charge sizes and configurations and to relate these magnitudes to impacts on the natural physical and biological environment and on humans and the socioeconomic environment. The methodologies apply for the explosives normally used in land-based military high-explosive field tests, i.e., 0.5 to 500 tons of TNT-equivalent weight. The phenomena addressed include airblast and noise craters and ejecta missiles ground shock and explosion clouds of chemical products and dust.
