FOIA: Calibration of nuclear monitoring and development of regional velocity structure - Soviet Union.
Document by Scott B. Smithson of University of Wyoming 2001 – 69 pages for Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR).
This document looks at the different structural regions around the Soviet Union: Baltic Shield, Urals, West Siberian Basin, Altay, Mezenskaya
Depression etc. It analyses how peaceful nuclear explosions and chemical explosions (sourced from the soviet’s data collection) seismically
registered in these areas, detailing the depth into the earth and the distances across.
As the title suggests, this information would then be used to calibrate nuclear monitoring and development.
