My understanding is that underground testing left caverns below ground depending on weapon and size of explosions. The heat melted the rock and the
craters were the only visible part of the explosion. Despite leaving caverns the ground sunk too.I remember some show showing the caverns.
After all these years it may be possible to use these caverns. If anything radioactive was left in the cavern, it would be encapsulated in glass, so
dust would not be an issue, plus half life and all that.
I suppose if you wanted to store something, perhaps hazardous, the caverns would be nice.
I was looking at the craters on Google awhile back in regards to a hydrogen bomb test underground, IIRC, it left one of the biggest craters out
cavern made by nuclear explosion
