Abstract : The document presents data relating to an underground nuclear test in November 1968. The AEC news release simply states that on that day a test took place at the Nevada test grounds. No information regarding size, depth, or time of shot was given. It is hoped to show here the ease with which the time, size, and location of this explosion have been found with the instrument to be described. (Author)
