These Proceedings contain papers presented at the Seventeenth Annual Seismic Research Symposium on Monitoring a Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty CTBT held 12-15 September 1995, in Scottsdale, Arizona. This Symposium represents the combined annual review for the basic seismology program funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research AFOSR and the regional verification program funded by the Phillips Laboratory PL, Hq Air Force Technical Applications Center AFTAC, Department of Energy DOE, the Advanced Research Projects Agency ARPA and the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency ACDA. The scientific objectives of the research programs are to improve the Air Forces capability to seismically detect, locate, identify, and characterize underground nuclear explosion under a potential CTBT. The purpose of these Symposia, organized annually by GPE, is to provide the sponsoring agencies an opportunity to review research, particularly contractor research, accomplished during the preceding year and to outline areas of investigation for the coming year. For the researchers, it provides a forum for the exchange of scientific information to help achieve program goals, and an opportunity to meet AFOSR, PL, HQ AFTAC, DOE, ARPA and ACDA staff to discuss results and future plans. In addition, the Symposium and the technical presentations serve as an important avenue for technology transition to the Air Force user.
