The Seismology Subcommittee is separately constituted for the purpose of providing input to the parent Committee to Review and Update “Technical Issues Related to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT).”  The Subcommittee will produce written input on seismology issues that have been identified by the CTBT Committee and will interact with the CTBT Committee as needed.  The Subcommittee may also raise issues to the CTBT Committee that in its view have a material bearing that the Committee may not have identified.  In addition to including the Subcommittee’s input in the Committee’s report, the Committee may also choose to use the Subcommittee’s material as appendices that further explain certain issues in the report.

Project Start Date: 10/15/2009.
