over 200 psi at earth entry apparently. by other measures, 12 centigrade. take that as you will and bear in mind the humidity at ignition point.Anyone have any stats on the aerosols/GG's released by this explosion? Not that I'd expect it to be considerable in the wide scheme of things, but just for a frame of reference.
About 800 times as much of the stuff is used in explosives every year in North America alone, apparently. So globally speaking it's not a major pollution event. I guess if you live in or near Beirut it might be a different matter.Do you think this had a "methane crater" level effect? Those guys belch obscene amounts of methane, apparently. Given there are dozens of greenhouse gases, the chemical reactions involved in this explosion could, as far as I know, involve some. Then again, it's pretty liberal speculation.
