    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (599 KB)

    The Argus series of high-altitude nuclear explosions has provided us with the means of studying hydromagnetic-wave effects under known and controllable conditions. These explosions have enabled us to compare, for the first time, quantitative experimental data with theoretical considerations. Analysis of the world-wide hydromagnetic-wave effects led to the discovery of an interesting duct-like mech... View full abstract»
