On the Cover…
On 3 January 2014 an accidental explosion of a 1350-kg World War II bomb in Euskirchen, Germany, killed one person and injured several others. The above-ground detonation created an air blast that was widely observed in the area northeast of the explosion site, and the illustrated map summarizes the seismological observations. The wind field at the time of the explosion is superimposed on a digital elevation map; red dots indicate the measured ground velocities of the air blast signal; crossed circles show that no signal was recorded; and the yellow star indicates the explosion site. Black circles show macroseismic intensities of 300 reports; the map’s color indicates the population density. Hinzen (this issue) estimates the charge weight from the ground motion recorded at a distance of 7 km and interprets the directional spreading of the air blast.
