Tests of small explosions of up to 7.5 tons 6.8 Mg of TNT have frequently been conducted on Kirtland Air Force Base with only occasional nuisance damage to, or complaints from, the neighboring community of Albuquerque. Provisions were made for weather checks, including observations, forecasts, and acoustic propagation calculations, to determine whether or not a planned event could be tested as well as estimates of the delays needed to await suitable propagation weather.
