Journal Article
Published: 01 January 1977
Environmental & Engineering Geoscience (1977) xiv (1): 27–37.
...C. H. MILLER; D. R. MILLER Abstract An underground nuclear explosion caused surface cracks that were oriented as estimated from the measurement of preexplosion fractures and in situ stress. The explosion was detonated in a tunnel mined in volcanic tuff at a depth of 1,400 ft (427 m) beneath...

...Roger E. Scholl abstract Data on offsite low-rise building damage from underground nuclear testing at the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission's Nevada Test Site are available for seven large tests in the period from 1966 to 1970. The data, while sparse, provide an adequate sample for the investigation...

...W. K. Overbey, Jr.; C. A. Komar; J. Pasini ABSTRACT In a new series of experiments now being conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Mines, directional control of the combustion zone in underground gasification of coal requires detailed knowledge of the geology of the test site. In particular, directional...

... in the future, and we should encourage geologists, geochemists, and engineers to increase their research efforts toward adequate underground waste management. These facts lead me to a final point, and one that is not covered extensively by the papers to be presented at this symposium—that is, policy...

...Maurice J. Terman Abstract Both the United States and the USSR have conducted experimental programs in the application of underground nuclear explosions to peaceful uses, particularly as related to the petroleum industry. Both nations recognize that the explosive creation of an extensive pattern...

...William R. Perret Abstract Records of particle velocity in the free-field geological environment near underground nuclear explosions may be interpreted to yield the energy flux at a measuring station near or within the region of elastic response of the rock. Such data from 21 events in several...

... normally has a very low velocity and, also, only a small density compared to the neighboring rocks, channel waves along the seams are theoretically possible as will be shown. Such channel waves have been successfully produced and recorded by underground seismic work within a German coal mine. Moreover...
