Description/Abstract:
EARLY MEASUREMENT OF CRATERS FORMED BY LOW AIRBURSTS [ ] OVER A SURFACE OF DESERT ALLUVIUM WAS ACCUMPLISHED BY MEANS OF AERIAL STER EOPHOTOGRAPHY. THE FIRST SHOT (LITTLE FELLER II) WAS STATICALLY FIRED [ ] ABOVE GROUND SURFACE; THE SECOND (LITTLE FELLER I) WAS FI RED [ ] AT AN ESTIMATED HEIGHT OF [ ] ALSO. WHEN RAD IOACTIVITY LEVELS PERMITTED, THE STEREOPHOTOGRAPHICALLY OBTAINED CRATE R MEASUREMENTS WERE REFINED BY CONVENTIONAL SURVEYS WHICH ESTABLISHED APPARENT CRATER DIMENSIONS AS FOLLOWS: [ ]. THE LITTLE FELLER II EXPERIMENT UTILIZED COLORED SAND COLUMS, VERTICALLY EMBEDDE D IN THE VICINITY OF GROUND ZERO, TO ENABLE POSTSHOT MEASUREMENT OF PE RMANENT EARTH DEFORMATION BELOW THE APPARENT CRATER. IN THIS REPORT, POSTSHOT EXCAVATION AND MAPPING OF THESE COLUMS WERE DISCUSSED, THE RE SULTS ARE EVALUATED, AND CORRELATION IS MADE WITH PREVIOUS CRATERING D ATA.
