Abstract:

A brief summary of a series of system studies describes the data flow, file structures, and data processing required to operate a world-wide seismic surveillance network. One of the design problems in developing a surveillance mode of operation is to provide the seismic analyst-computer interaction needed to efficiently perform discrimination processing to effectively classify events as earthquakes or explosions. Efficiency is required to keep up with the daily load of events which must be subjected to classification processing. Flexibility in altering operating procedures will be needed until our discrimination capability is sufficiently developed to identify explosions originating from any region which is possibly accessible to nuclear explosions.
