Abstract : This report describes some coordinated high latitude experiments which are being conducted for simulating nuclear-burst effects on long-range VLF propagation. The program consists of four parts: collection and study of VLF phase and amplitude data over four long range, high latitude VLF propagation paths; collection and study of ionospheric data (cosmic noise absorption data) near Reykjavik, Iceland; collection and study of other VLF ionospheric data from external sources (including satellite data); and study and comparison of items 1 through 3 with nuclear test VLF data.
