Abstract:

The past years work concerning early time nuclear phenomenology at high altitudes has involved a number of diverse problems. These include 1 simulations of magnetic field and debris dynamics in VHANE bursts, 2 calculations of the energy deposition spectrum in HANE bursts, 3 study of debris characteristics in both VHANE and HANE regimes, 4 development of a simple debris slowing and deposition model based on electromagnetic instabilities due to debris streaming along the magnetic field, and 5 some preliminary calculations of multiburst effects.
