Abstract : Twelve reed gages were installed for horizontal and vertical displacement shock spectrum measurements on the GNOME event. Seven of the 12 reed gages were placed on the earth's surface at various ranges from surface zero. Four of the gages were placed in the GNOME tunnel. One gage was placed in the International MineralsAND Chemical Corporation Mine (Shaft No. 4) approximately nine miles from the GNOME site. Usable data were obtained from nine of the 10 records recovered to date. The gage in the IMC mine recorded no displacements. Records from the gages in tunnel nearest zero were not recovered.
