Determining surface-wave magnitudes from regional Nevada Test Site data


S U M M A R Y We re-examine the use of surface-wave magnitudes to determine the yield of underground nuclear explosions and the associated magnitude-yield scaling relationship. We have calculated surface-wave magnitudes for 190 Nevada Test Site (NTS) shots using regional long-period seismograms from a combined super-network of 55 North American stations… (More)
