Abstract : The volume presents new theoretical developments of two problems. The first is the determination of the waves resulting from the passage of a high- pressure disturbance over the free surface of a body of water. This would occur in the case of a burst on or over land near a shore and is, therefore, of interest to the Five City Study in which three nuclear surface bursts are near rivers or bays. The second topic is motion of the ground water table induced by a surface burst. This problem is of interest for the determination of the migration of radioactive contaminants and is also applicable to three cities of the Five City Study.
