Abstract : Event Mineral Rock, a 100 ton H. E. surface burst on granite provided an assortment of crater debris data. Analysis of these data produced the following: A size-to-weight relation, given either the length, area, or volume of a particle; a given size subgroup within the range of 'fine' (.476 in) particles represents an increasing cumulative percent of existing fine debris as radial distance increases; rock breaks up fairly randomly; normalized ratios of width to length and thickness to length are less than .7 and .4, respectively; particles become longer and thinner with increasing weight; an aerial photo study tends to define rocks longer than they are.
