OPERATION HARDTACK. Project 1.13. Characteristics of Ocean and Bottom for Shots Wahoo and Umbrella, Including Umbrella Crater,
NAVAL OCEANOGRAPHIC OFFICE NSTL STATION MS
The general objectives of this project were to 1 conduct an oceanographic, hydrographic and seismic survey of the sites for Shots Wahoo and Umbrella for use in designing the experimental plan for the underwater program 2 provide environmental data in support of other scientific projects and 3 determine the magnitude of the crater from Shot Umbrella. The operational phase was essentially intended to provide information on which to base an estimate of the temperature and density fields of the sea water at the time of Shot Wahoo and to determine the magnitude of the Shot Umbrella crater.
