Abstract : The scientific objective of this program is to improve the Air Force's capability to seismically detect, locate, identify and estimate the yield of underground nuclear explosions. The purpose of this symposium, which is organized annually by LWH, is to provide the GSD staff an opportunity to review the research accomplished during the preceding year and outline areas of investigation for the coming year. For the researchers, it provides a forum for the exchange of scientific information, as well as occasions to meet personally with the GSD and LWH staff to discuss individual projects, ideas and results. In addition, the technical presentations serve as a means to inform representative from other Government agencies about advances in seismic monitoring research, technologies and techniques as part of the important process of technology transition. The papers include studies on regional seismic wave propagation, attenuation and scattering, array processing and seismic techniques of yield estimation.
