Regional Infrasound Workshop and integrated Training for SEAPFE NDCs

  Jakarta, Indonesia
  02 Mar 2020 - 06 Mar 2020

The objectives are:

Regional Infrasound Workshop

  • To further build up the national and regional capacities in implementing the Treaty and participating in the verification regime, as well as to promote the civil and scientific application of verification technologies, in particular to promote the importance of infrasound technology;
  • To promote the exchange of experience and expertise in Infrasound technology among the NDCs in SEAPFE region;
  • To strengthen participants’ knowledge of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) and the work of the Preparatory Commission.
  • To share experiences, insights, and vision to strengthen effective NDCs development
  • Infrasound Integrated Training

  • To understand and learn how Infrasound data can help in the verification regime and civil and scientific application;
  • To learn how to use the Infrasound tools in the NDC in a Box (NiaB) package with processing the data collected from Indonesia portable array experiment;
  • To stimulate regional cooperation in Infrasound data analysis through the NDCs.

  • Technical Expert Meeting on Automatic Aftershock Processing Algorithms

      Vienna, VIC
      05 Mar 2020 - 06 Mar 2020

    The PTS is exploring ways to improve the performance of the IDC’s automatic processing pipeline, an important aspect of which is the timely and high-quality automatic processing of aftershock sequences and other recurring events. For this reason the PTS launched a project with the objective to evaluate three algorithms that will help address this issue, namely the Empirical Matched Field algorithm by NORSAR, the SeisCorr algorithm by Sandia National Labs and the XSEL algorithm by the IDC.

    The objective of this technical expert meeting is threefold:

    Meeting participants are welcome to contribute to the technical meeting by making 15 minute presentation(s) related to the topics above.
