Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the AGU 2016 Fall Meeting session entitled “Geophysical Approaches for Global Security”. Below is the session description. Please consider submitting your nuclear-explosion monitoring and global security related abstracts to the session by August 3rd, 23:59 EDT. Thanks.

Kristin Phillips-Alonge, Ting Chen, Xiaoning (David) Yang and Moira Pyle

Session Description:
Geophysical methods can be applied to a variety of national and global security concerns. In light of the continued underground nuclear testing by North Korea and the current potential for other countries to be developing nuclear weapons, it is essential to develop state-of-the-art approaches for detecting, locating and characterizing explosive and other types of testing that could be indicators of nuclear or other types of WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) development activities. We invite submissions in areas such as modeling and characterizing explosive signatures and wave propagation in complex environments, tunnel detection, intrusion detection, remote sensing, and other methods for addressing security threats. Results and methods from other areas utilizing seismology or infrasound are encouraged if they have applications to global security.
