Nukes, oh my!

In the book a nuke is used.  I needed to nuke a small 3 kilometer wide valley. 

The method is a deuterium-tritium capsule collapsed by a lithium ring with magnetism.  The amount of fuel could be variable, allowing the nuker to set the size of the detonation, I’m thinking.  I’m not sure about this, so I didn’t specify that in my writing. 

What I did do was research nuclear bursts, and the areas of effect.

I used a 2 kiloton yield to achieve my goal.

You too can nuke the place of your choice, with the yield that you like the most.

Let’s hope this never happens.  But it does in my story.
