   Nuclear Explosions Conducted by US during 1945-63, including surface, atmospheric and underwater tests. I don't have here shaft/tunnel test data, because I'm collecting the images of those explosions :) I've used several different sources to complete this table, as you can see a lot of cells still contain ?, which means no data for it :( If you have that kind of data, or you find anything incorrect, please Contact Me, any help will be appreciated.
