Abstract : The underground nuclear explosion Gnome was recorded at several stations of the Caltech network with P amplitudes as large as or smaller than reported by Romney for Logan and Blanca. Since large amplitudes were reported for propagation to the east the hypothesis is advanced that a more severe shadow zone effect exists for propagation to the west due to different structure of the mantle in the low velocity layer.
