Session Description:

*Recent Advances in Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Verification Research*

Today, there are still more than 9,000 nuclear warheads deployed worldwide,
with many thousands more that are decommissioned. The world community has
long worked to reduce these numbers of weapons of mass destruction (WMD)
and at the same time, to curb any attempt to develop more WMD. Nuclear
weapon testing is a critical step in developing WMD, and hence, if we can
stop nuclear testing, then we can restrain the development of WMD. The
Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) represents a commitment to
curb nuclear weapon testing. Although the treaty is not yet formally in
effect as an active international treaty, the Preparatory Commission for
the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), established
in 1996 in Vienna, Austria, is fully functioning. CTBTO operates the
International Monitoring System (IMS) consisting of networks of globally
distributed observatories with four major monitoring technologies --
seismic, infrasound, hydroacoustic and radionuclides, and the International
Data Center (IDC) in its headquarters in Vienna.

The Earth science community has been carrying out various geophysical
researches to support the verification regime in the past 75 years. We
invite submissions detailing recent advances in infrasound, hydroacoustic,
radionuclides and seismic researches relevant to nuclear test ban
monitoring, and other topics in global security related to curbing the
development of WMD. Detailed analysis of data, new observations, source,
and propagation modeling, improved data analysis techniques and
instrumentation are welcome.
