Description/Abstract:
THIS IS A TECHNICAL PLAN FOR GEOLOGIC AND GEOPHYSICAL EXPLORATION OF E NIWETOK ATOLL AND SIX NUCLEAR CRATERS EXISTING AT THE ATOLL FROM THE N UCLEAR TESTS CONDUCTED THERE IN THE 1950 TIME PERIOD. METHODS ARE PRES ENTED BY WHICH THE OVERALL GEOLOGY OF THE ATOLL CAN BE DEFINED TO A DE PTH OF ABOUT 300 FEET, ZONES OF CRATERING INFLUENCE BENEATH EACH OF TH E SIX CRATERS CAN BE LOCATED AND DEFINED, AND A CURRENTLY HYPOTHESIZED THEORY EXPLAINING THE APPARENT SHAPES OF THE SIX CRATERS CAN BE TESTE D. CORE DRILLING, SEISMIC PROFILING, GEOPHYSICAL LOGGING, AND AERIAL P HOTOGRAPHY PROGRAMS ARE LAYED OUT. ONE CYLINDRICAL INSITU TEST (CIST) IS INCLUDED.
