Abstract : Since 1946, researchers from the Institute for Dynamics of the Geospheres (IDG) took an active participation in equipment design and observations of nuclear explosions and associated test (modelling) experiments by using chemical explosives. In this report, experimental data of hydrodynamic processes in water related to underwater, above water and coastal explosions are presented, analyzed and generalized. The principal goal of this work is improving existing hydroacoustic methods of monitoring and identifying underwater and above water nuclear explosions.
