Atomic, Molecular, and Nuclear Data


  1. DOE Nevada: Photo Library - Atmospheric These are photos from the Nevada Test Site archive. The site is of course for nuclear explosions.
  2. Ewald, Rosalie The partial grotrian diagrams from Moore & Merrill (1968).
  3. LBNL Isotopes Project - LUNDS Universitet WWW Table of Radioactive Isotopes
  4. Nuclides, Table, Chart Brookhaven National Laboratory.
  5. NIST: Fundamental Constants
  6. NIST: Reprints of NSRDS series
  7. Standard Abundance Distribution of the solar system. Derived from Grevesse & Sauval (1998). See Andrew Cowley's diagrams of SAD (the older Anders & Grevesse 1989 version)

Papers & Other Works

These are just papers I've read and found useful. They are given in reverse time order.

  1. Grevesse & Sauval (1998). An older standard solar composition (SAD). Directly, it's at Springer.
  2. Moore & Merrill (1968) Partial Grotrian Diagrams of Astrophysical Interest. Also available as postscript. The original reference site is NIST. The copyright status of these works is unclear to me. The bibtex reference is at Moore & Merrill (1968).


  1. ./explosion_1945_trinity.jpg Trinity, Alamogordo, New Mexico, 1945jul16.

    Trinity was the first nuclear explosion. The Trinity site is only about 30 miles from Socorro where I worked at New Mexico Tech in 2001--2003.

  2. ./explosion_1954_bikini.jpg A 15 megaton bomb on Bikini Atoll, 1954feb28.

    This was XX-92 BRAVO - Operation Castle. We've long forgotten where an innocent word for beach-wear came from and why.

  3. ./explosion_1955_survivor.jpg A survivor house from 1955may05.

    This house was constructed to test survival in nuclear explosions. It was located 7,500 feet (about 1.5 miles) from a 29-kiloton nuclear detonation. It remained essentially intact. I assume the location is the Nevada Test Site outside of Las Vegas.
