PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The CREMINO event was detonated in hole U8e of the Nevada Test Site. The device had a depth-of-burial (DOB) of 210 m in the Alluvium of area 8, about 365 m above the standing water level and about 500 m above the Paleozoic formation. The companion experiment, �CAERPHILLY�, was simultaneously executed at a depth of 408 m in the same hole. Stemming of the 2.18 m diameter emplacement hole followed the plan shown in figure 1.4. A log of the stemming operations was maintained by Holmes & Narver(2). Detonation time was 09:30:00 PDTon September 27, 1978, and about 30 minutes ... continued below

The device had a depth-of-burial (DOB) of 210 m in the Alluvium of area 8, about 365 m above the standing water level and about 500 m above the Paleozoic formation. The companion experiment, �CAERPHILLY�, was simultaneously executed at a depth of 408 m in the same hole. Stemming of the 2.18 m diameter emplacement hole followed the plan shown in figure 1.4. A log of the stemming operations was maintained by Holmes & Narver(2). Detonation time was 09:30:00 PDTon September 27, 1978, and about 30 minutes later a sub- surface collapse terminated at a depth of about 80 m. No radiation arrivals were detected above ground and the containment of these events was considered successful. This report describes the event itself, stemming behavior, emplacement pipe meaurements, measurements during collapse, and measurements in the satellite hole.
