Abstract:

The objective of the S-CUBED research program is to extend our present understanding of the generation, propagation, detection and analysis of seismic waves by both underground explosions and earthquake sources. The goal is to improve the United States ability to monitor compliance with treaties limiting the yields of underground nuclear explosions. Specific topics summarized in the following sections are The identification of the critical explosionearthquake source and geologic parameters effecting detection, discrimination and yield estimation The evaluation of suites of events in terms of our ability to predict the observed body waves and surface waves from these events which travel over previously uncalibrated paths and The support of remote seismic research involving the development and acquisition of remote hardware necessary to optimize utilization of the computer system at the Seismic Research Center.
