Description: Miscellaneous paper
Abstract: A review of ground shock data from recent large, near-surface high-explosive tests is made. Emphasis is on close-in motions in rock. Wave forms are shown for selected shots and locations. Comparisons are made among wave forms for similar test conditions in different geologic materials including soil, shale, granite, and sandstone. Variations in peak motion amplitudes at various depths and ranges are discussed for the different geologic materials.
