Seismic results from DOE`s non-proliferation experiment: A comparison of chemical and nuclear explosions

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The basic results from the US Department of Energy`s (DOE`s) NonProliferation Experiment (NPE) for seismic signal generation are that the source function for a chemical explosion is equivalent to that of a nuclear explosion of about twice the yield and that the seismic moment measurements are consistent between freefield, local, and regional measurements. In addition, evidence was found that Pn in the Basin and Range province of the western United States is a turning ray and is simply proportional to the source function while the transfer functions for Pg and Lg are low-pass in nature.
