A total of twelve reed gages were installed to measure displacement shock spectra resulting from the Project Gnome underground nuclear explosion. Seven of the gages were installed on the ground surface at four locations out to a distance of 3000 feet from surface zero. All of these gages yielded usable records. Four of the gages were installed in the floor of the Gnome tunnel at two locations. Those at the 1033-foot range gave valid records; those at the 900-foot range were not recovered after the test. The one gage located underground at the International Minerals and Chemical Corporation (IMCC) mine, some nine miles distant, did not record any motion. The plotted displacement spectra showed the expected results in that displacements and peak accelerations decreased with increasing slant range for the surface gages. The vertical spectra were higher than the corresponding horizontal radial spectra for the surface gages. For the gages in the Gnome tunnel, the horizontal radial spectrum was higher than the vertical spectrum. (Author).
