Abstract : Examined are the kinetic and dynamic characteristics of volume and surface seismic waves excited by nuclear explosions in various media. Investigated is the level and spectral compositions of microseisms in various seismogeological regions; discussed is also the question concerning the choice of optimum parameters of seismic equipment. Shown are possibilities of using the data obtained at explosions for the study of the internal structure of the earth. (Author)
