Abstract
A method is proposed for distinguishing between explosive detonations in air, underground, and in underground chambers, and for estimating the chamber size by analyzing the electromagnetic signatures at a distance from each of these points of detonation.The method is an extension of a previous theoretical model developed at Enig Associates, Inc., which explains how the electromagnetic signals are related to the electric charge generated by the thermohydrodynamic states of the detonation products
