Abstract : An analysis of seismological data from an underground nuclear explosion as a continuing study to provide information to aid in distinguishing between earthquakes and explosions. A table of travel-times and amplitudes of P, Pg, Lg, and surface waves are included along with other unidentified phases. Appendix 4 is a report on the characteristics of CORDUROY signals recorded by the LRSM portable systems. Five sites in the eastern United States were located on the arc of a circle centered at NTS, each of them situated in a region of distinctly different geologic character. (Author)
