Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty - a peace-keeping initiative with scientific impact

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Any major shaking of the Earth can be recorded on a seismograph regardless of the nature of the source. Earthquakes and large explosions generate waves with similar frequency content. This fact has been used for decades to construct systems to monitor detonations of underground nuclear explosions. The quality of the monitoring system has increased significantly in recent years, and we demonstrate here that the data are useful in Danish earthquake research.
