    Operation Wigwam consisted of a single nuclear detonation conducted 400-500 miles SW of San Diego, California. It was a deep water test to investigate the vulnerability of submarines to deep nuclear weapons. The test device was a Mk-90 Betty depth bomb that was suspended beneath a barge. The ships conducting the test were 5 miles upwind from the barge, with the exception of the USS George Eastman and USS Granville S. Hall which were equipped with heavy shielding and stationed 5 miles downwind. Both ships were contaminated by the base surge.
