Sorry if anyone has said it, I couldn't find it if they have..
What kind of effects would subterranean, surface, and atmospheric nuclear detonations have on the tectonic plates and their movement and pressure
Is the power of nuclear weapons negligible compared to the power of the tectonic plates and their behavior and the release of pressure?
It seems to me there would have to be a correlating effect between the two, with over 2000+ nuclear detonations since atomic weapons discovery in such
a short time span, I'd imagine nukes having more of an effect on seismic activity than solar activity.
Is there any research done by the USGS on the matter?
