Abstract : These Proceedings contain papers presented at the Eighteenth Annual Seismic Research Symposium on Monitoring a Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT), held 4-6 September 1996, in Annapolis, Maryland. This Symposium represents the combined annual review for the basic seismology program funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) and the regional verification program funded by the Phillips Laboratory (PL), Hq Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC), Department of Energy (DOE), the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) and the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA). In addition, representatives from four of the DOE National Laboratories participate in the Symposium to provide insight on the internal DOE CTBT R&D program. The scientific objectives of the research programs are to improve the Air Force's capability to seismically detect, locate, identify, and characterize underground nuclear explosions under a potential CTBT.
