The International Monitoring System (IMS) for verifying compliance with the Comprehensive Nuclear‐Test‐Ban Treaty (CTBT) comprises sensors associated with four monitoring technologies: seismic, infrasound, hydroacoustic, and radionuclide. The so‐called waveform technologies (seismic, infrasound, and hydroacoustic) are used to detect and locate events that could constitute treaty violations. All four technologies may be employed to investigate the nature of events, with the network of radionuclide sensors in place to provide evidence of a nuclear explosion. Historical, political, and technical issues surrounding the CTBT are discussed by Dahlman et al. (2009, 2011). The global IMS infrasound network (Fig. 1) is...
