Description/Abstract:
ON MOST PREVIOUS NUCLEAR DETONATIONS, SIGNATURES AND QUANTITATIVE MEAS UREMENTS OF THE ELECTRIC FIELD SIGNALS ASSOCIATED WITH THE DETONATIONS HAVE BEEN OBTAINED AT DISTANCES SUCH THAT NORMAL RADIATION FIELD CHAR ACTERISTICS APPLY. ON SMALL BOY, MEASUREMENTS WERE MADE BY OTHER PROJ ECTS FROM STATIONS LOCATED MUCH CLOSER IN, SUCH AS TO BE INSIDE, ON TH E BOUNDARY OF, AND JUST OUTSIDE THE LIMITS OF THE IONIZED SPHERE CREAT ED BY THE NUCLEAR BURST. THE ELECTRIC FIELD CHARACTERISTICS IN THESE REGIONS WERE UNKNOWN. IN THE HOPE OF PROVIDING CONTINUITY FROM THE RE GION OF THE UNKNOWN INTO THE REASONABLY WELL UNDERSTOOD REGION OF THE RADIATION FIELD, THIS PROJECT WAS REQUESTED TO MAKE THE TYPICAL RADIAT
