Detecting the Bomb examines how the United States developed the seismic component of the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection System. What led leaders of Western and Eastern nations to the realization that a nuclear test ban could be of mutual interest? WhyMoreDetecting the Bomb examines how the United States developed the seismic component of the U.S. Atomic Energy Detection System. What led leaders of Western and Eastern nations to the realization that a nuclear test ban could be of mutual interest? Why did the USSR insist that underground explosions could be adequately distinguished from earthquakes and safely monitored without verification systems on their territory, and why did the United States vigorously disagree?

Dr. Romney will answer these questions while laying out the principles of scientific detection and reliable discrimination. One of the nations leading seismologists, Dr. Romney describes the development of methods for detecting nuclear explosions, and their effect on nuclear test ban negotiations from the late 1950s to the mid 1960s. Carl Romney cites important details from early scientific studies, and explains how seismology formed the crux of the diplomatic debate in the early nuclear age.
