Seismological exploration companies and Defense Department proving grounds occasionally experience liability suits for damage wrought by explosions. Good forecasts of troposphere temperature and wind structure can be used to predict where shocks will strike, and with fair accuracy whether or not the shock will crack windows. Formulas are derived by which these predictions may be made.
