A
Statement of Task

Charge from the Nuclear Treaty Program Office

The panel will review and evaluate the following:

  1. What are the basic research problems remaining in the fields of seismology, hydroacoustics, infrasonics and radionuclides that should be pursued to meet national and international requirements for nuclear monitoring? The panel's work on this question should anticipate quality of data to be made available in the future, in particular those data from the CTBT International Monitoring System.

  2. What research is necessary to strengthen the synergy between the seismic, hydroacoustic, infrasonic, and radionuclide data sets to improve overall monitoring capability and to meet national and international requirements?

  3. How should the research result be transitioned so that they are most useful to those responsible for monitoring and verifying a CTBT?

  4. What are characteristics of a long-term program that would provide a stable, but adaptable base of support to those responsible for monitoring and verifying a CTBT?

Original AFOSR-Phillips Laboratory Seismic Review Panel

The panel will review and evaluate the content and focus of the research support programs of seismology of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the Phillips Laboratory of Hanscom Air Force Base.
