Nuclear Test Sites

Animating the history of nuclear testing

In Fall 2001 John Cimina did a good bit of work on the project of mapping nuclear test sites, working from the OKLAHOMA GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OBSERVATORY list compiled by James E. Lawson Jr., but we were unable to complete the plot to animate the map. The summary totals the tests.

In Spring 2002 it looks like Eric Kontargyris may be able to use Flash to solve the problem. We need to expand the problem somewhat, to make it a CompSci project instead of a software exercise.

(n.b. I have added the RAJ test to the map [h:\nukes\4iv.apr] --and there may be others missing)
