Abstract:

Eruptions from under-ice explosions were recorded by a standard video camera and an ordinary motor-driven 35-mm camera. The records give the dimensions and velocities of the eruptions. Velocity, diameter, and height are related to charge depth and the results are compared with data for ordinary underwater explosions in ice-free water.
