Nuclear Monitoring Agency Reaches Out To Scientists

Nuclear Monitoring Agency Reaches Out To Scientists

Back in 1990, a Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, commonly known as CTBT, was designed comprehensively to make sure that all nuclear device testing are put to a stop. Despite all their efforts and the fact that the treaty has been signed by over 183 countries, not much progress has been made when it comes to dealing with nuclear device testing. Many things have hindered the whole process of stopping nuclear device testing, for instance, some countries, including the U.S. are yet to ratify it formerly.

In an effort to see to it that the treaty that was agreed upon in 1990 is being followed, the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban-Treaty-Organization’s (CTBTO) preparatory commission, which is based at Vienna, has been working tirelessly so as to see to it that they build a strong network that monitors stations which violate the rules that had been agreed upon. Its expected that 300 stations will make up the Network. At the stations, which are approaching their completion they will be able to detect if a nuclear device test has been initiated throughout the planet. In an event that there is a nuclear testing going on then the stations will be able to indicate it.

At the same time the CTBTO are also reaching out to scientists so as to well understand the data from their scientific applications. Their applications can be used for a number of things. For instance they can be used so as to track volcanic ash clouds as well as storms. They can also be used to monitor large ice bergs and the drifts that they make.
