The following are several resources, provided by the ISTI team and other colleagues in the field, that we hope may be of interest to you.
- S53B-2831: Constraining shallow seismic event depth via synthetic modeling for Expert Technical Analysis at the IDC: Depth of event is an important criterion of seismic event screening at the International Data Center, CTBTO. However, a thorough determination of the event depth can be conducted mostly through special analysis because the IDC’s Event Definition Criteria is based, in particular, on depth estimation uncertainties . . .
Standard Station Interface (SSI) Software
- Development of Standard Station Interface for Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organistation Monitoring Networks: Under the contract with the CTBTO, Instrumental Software Technologies Inc., (ISTI) has designed and developed a Standard Station Interface (SSI) – a set of executable programs and application programming interface libraries for acquisition, authentication, archiving and telemetry of seismic and infrasound data for stations of the CTBTO nuclear monitoring network . . .
- S31A-2696: IMS Seismic and Infrasound Stations Instrumental Challenges: The IMS seismic network is a set of monitoring facilities including 50 primary stations and 120 auxiliary stations. Besides the difference in the mode of data transmission to the IDC, technical specifications for seismographic equipment to be installed at both types of stations are essentially the same. The IMS infrasound network comprises 60 facilities with the requirement of continuous data transmission to IDC . . .
Calibration of IMS seismic and hydroacoustic stations using Standard Station Interface (SSI) Software – Anonymous: The SSI calibration module is a tool that extends the Standard Station Interface (SSI) for intuitive execution of instrumental calibration and review of calibration results.
A fast and robust method for moment tensor and depth determination of shallow seismic events in CTBT related studies: International Data Center is required to conduct expert technical analysis and special studies to improve event parameters and assist State Parties in identifying the source of specific event according to the protocol to the Protocol to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. Determination of seismic event source mechanism and its depth is closely related to these tasks . . .
