Abstract: Aerial bombing of the target island of Kahoolawe, Hawaii, during
several hours on 19 and 20 December 1961 and on 13 February 1962 generated
acoustic disturbances that were felt by people and recorded by seismometers on the
island of Hawaii. The azimuth of arrival of the pseudoseisms was calculated from
the accurate seismographic responses. Special atmospheric conditions are suspected
as prime agencies in the propagation and focusing of these phenomena; lack of
specific data in this field, however, leaves the matter of atmospheric structure speculative.
