Abstract : The Memorandum is part of a continuing study of the detection of high-altitude nuclear explosions. It is concerned with low-frequency hydromagnetic waves generated by such explosions and detected at worldwide locations. It should be of interest to those concerned with ground-level magnetic signals generated by either high-altitude nuclear bursts or sources of natural origin. (Author)
