Hydrologic and Geologic Studies for Project Gnome: Progress Report

Description: From introduction: The broad objectives of the Survey's program are to provide the basic geologic and geophysical information needed to define the pre- and post-shot geologic and physical properties of salt and other rocks affected by the explosion. To provide geologic and hydrologic information on the pre- and post-shot hydrologic conditions at the Gnome site and surrounding region.

Subsurface Fracturing from Shoal Nuclear Detonation: Final Report

Description: Abstract: A fracture-evaluation experiment in conjunction with the Shoal nuclear detonation in granite was undertaken to determine the extent of subsurface shock-induced fractures. Preshot and postshot geophysical logs in a hole drilled from the surface through the zone of fractures indicated that fractures extended at least 5.3 cavity radii laterally from the point of detonation. Quantitative measurements of permeability increases resulting from the detonation were planned, but were not completed because of adverse test-hole conditions. General descriptions of the Shoal Project, geology of the test site, and other effects of the detonation are included.
