Sea-floor observations and subbottom seismic characteristics of OAK and KOA craters, Enewetak Atoll, Marshall Islands by David W Folger( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From 17 Jan - 20 Sep, 1984, the physiographic and subsurface effects of thermonuclear explosions were studied in two submarine craters created during nuclear explosion testing 1958 at Enewetak Atoll. The first of a three-phase field program included echo-sounding, sidescan-sonar, and single-channel seismic-reflection profiles; the second included sea-floor observations and bottom sampling by scuba and research submersible; and the third included multi-channel seismic-reflection profiles, seismic-refraction profiles, and additional sea-floor observations and sampling. In this report are the results of the 1984 field work supplemented with some preliminary data acquired during an extensive follow-up drilling program conducted during 1985. Specific chapters deal with: Bathymetry, Sidescan-sonar survey, Single-channel seismic survey, and Multichannel seismic-reflection survey of KOA and OAK craters, and Preliminary analyses fo OAK deberis samples

The ARGUS shots were conducted to test the Christofilos theory, which argued that high-altitude nuclear detonations would create a radiation belt in the upper regions of the Earth's atmosphere. It was postulated that these belts of radiation (primarily high-energy electrons) might cause degradation of radio and radar transmissions, damage or destruction of the arming mechanisms of ICBM warheads, and endangerment of crews in orbiting space vehicles that might enter the belt
