This report is from Los Alamos National Laboratories and is Titled:
Low-Yield Nuclear Explosion Calculations:the 9/22/79 Vela Signal
Dated May 1982.
The report states it will summarise Vela data, discuss classical interpretations, and present a particular model which, they believe, satisfactorily
reproduces the Vela signal.
The sub-heading ‘Scaling Laws for Atmospheric Nuclear Explosions’ concludes the conventional scaling laws cannot provide a consistent model for
the Vela data.
contains an interesting discussion about the general possible effects of cloud cover and atmospheric absorption that can alter the
interpretation of the signal.
The conclusion they reached was ‘…the observed irradiance levels are high enough that the signal could not have suffered much absorption nor
scattering beyond that expected for relatively clear maritime air.
I was reminded of the reason used in other documents by the military on sept 22 1979 as to why they couldn’t collect the
vital samples from the atmosphere. See AD_HOC_REPORT - this is mentioned on page 16 in
Their response was that they sent sample collectors out but the weather made it unachievable.
Would it be a reasonable investigation to search past weather bureau data?
It is impossible to draw overall conclusions from this document as even the
Summary at the end is blanked out.
