Abstract Magnetometer records taken during the explosion indicate an initial sharp decrease in field strength of about 1 sec duration beginning about 2 sec after detonation followed by large, rapid fluctuations of the field for several seconds. For the first 15 sec of the signal, the changes in field strength exceeded in amplitude and frequency the range and frequency response of the recorder. At 16 sec after onset the signal decreased sufficiently in amplitude and frequency to fall within the recorder response. (C.E.S.)
