The results of a search for short bursts of gravitational radiation coincident between the Allegro and Explorer cryogenic resonant mass detectors with strain amplitudes greater than 3×10[sup -18] are reported for data taken from June until December of 1991. While no significant excess of coincident events was found, an improved upper limit to the rate of gravitational wave bursts incident on the Earth has been set. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
