On the cover: The so-called "Hiroshima Lost Photograph," discovered in 2013 in a collection of photographs at Honkawa Elementary School (Hiroshima City). It is a rare ground-level photograph taken near the present-day city of Kaita, located approximately 10 km (6 mi) east of the Hiroshima hypocenter. The photograph shows both the fireball and stem clouds within a time regime of 2 to 3 min following the Hiroshima explosion. The rising fireball and the far field of its internal vortex flow pulled part of the upper stem into the space below the cap cloud. The cap cloud contained mainly fission products, and the stem cloud contained mainly neutron-activated soil from the hypocenter area directly beneath the clouds. See the paper by Kerr et al. on p. 582 for further information.
