General view of the affected larch-tree forest located at the axis of the trace from the "Kraton-3" underground nuclear explosion. All the trees died as a result of accidental release of the radioactive products into the atmosphere in 1978. Pronounced compensatory development of shrubs and bushes is observed. Photograph circa July 2002. See article by V. Ramzaev and H. Y. Göksu on page 263 for more information.
