... of Bikini Atoll. Naval depth charges were fired on the lagoon bottom along four lines extending across the atoll and the resulting seismic waves were picked up by water-coupled microphones near shore. A total of 126 charges were exploded in the survey. The time-distance curves indicate the existence...

...K. O EMERY Abstract The program of investigations made in connection with the atomic bomb tests in the summer of 1946 at Bikini Atoll provided a rare opportunity for obtaining information on the physiography and sediments of atolls. The outer slopes around Bikini Atoll rise from a depth of about...

...Dean S. Carder Abstract Travel time data, from widely recorded nuclear detonations in the Eniwetok and Bikini atolls of the central Pacific, have been compiled and are presented. Although a number of stations recorded ten or more events from each atoll, the resulting data may be considered as from...
