A New U.S.-U.S.S.R. Seismological Program


On July 9, 1986, a team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego; University of Nevada, Reno; and the University of Colorado, Boulder established the first of three seismic stations to be located in the vicinity of the Soviet nuclear test site in eastern Kazakhstan (KTS) (see cover). Under an agreement reached between the Soviet Academy of Sciences and the Natural Resources Defense Council, a nonprofit U.S. environmental organization, these stations, which are configured to meet the specifications of the proposed new global seismographic network [Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), 1984], will be complemented by three similarly equipped stations to be installed in the vicinity of the U.S. nuclear test site in southern Nevada (NTS). The stations are to be operated cooperatively by Soviet and U.S. personnel (Figure 1).
