Abstract : This report presents an annotated and unclassified bibliography of selected references from refereed and other literature sources which are deemed relevant to those governmental, industry and academic institutions interested in the technical aspects of infrasound, in general, and in the particular use of infrasound to monitor compliance within the context of a comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty (CTBT). The review covers papers published during the time period extending from 1874 to 1996 and is based on literature searches conducted at the NTIS (National Technical Information Service), DTIC (Defense Technical Information Center), DSWA (Defense Special Weapons Agency), AFTAC (Air Force Tactical Applications Center) and from various refereed open literature journals. The report also reproduces the 'Bibliography of Infrasonic Waves,' which was published in the 1971 Volume 26 special issue on infrasonics and atmospheric acoustics published by The Geophysical Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society and a list of references provided in Gossard and Hooke's 1975 book: WAVES IN THE ATMOSPHERE: Atmospheric Infrasound and Gravity Waves - their Generation and Propagation.
