Underground nuclear explosions (7 pics + 6 videos)

Underground (underwater) nuclear explosion - an explosion produced by underground (underwater) and is characterized by the release of large amounts of soil (water), mixed with the products of nuclear explosive (fission fragments of uranium-235 or plutonium-239). Lethality and destructive effect of underground nuclear explosion is determined mainly of seismic waves (primary effects), the formation of craters in the ground and strong radioactive contamination. Light radiation and ionizing radiation are absent. Characteristic of an underwater explosion is the formation of the Sultan (water column), the basic wave generated in the collapse of the Sultan (water column).




Between 1945 and 1992, the US government conducted a nuclear test in 1030. 210 classified as atmospheric, 815 were detonated underground, and 5 - under water. 804 underground tests were carried out at the site in Nevada.
