    A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. The Department of Geosciences and Geography is an exceptionally diverse unit for academic research and education. Our research interest range from exploring the experiences of minorities in cities, through plate tectonics to how environments have c hanged since life began.

    Project Details Layman's description The objective of national nuclear power safety research is to ensure that if new matters related to the safe use of nuclear power plants should arise, the authorities possess sufficient technical expertise and other competence for determining the significance of those matters without delay. The current mandate covers government regulator duties in seismic hazard mitigation and nuclear test ban treaty verification, observatory activities and operation of the Finnish National Seismic Network (FNSN) as well as research and teaching of seismology at the University of Helsinki. The FNSN has expanded significantly during the 21st Century.

    there have been Finnish national nuclear safety research programmes since the ’s. In the SAFIR programme period there have been several licencing and other regu-latory procedures undertaken for new and existing nuclear power plants. These, and present proposals for further development of the Finnish nuclear industry, emphasis the. His research area is seismology and includes studies of large earthquake ruptures, internal struc-ture of the Earth, and seismic monitoring of nuclear testing treaties. He is author of research publications including five books, publications in refereed books and profes-sional journals, and technical reports, book reviews, news.

Although the debate over nuclear testing has many facets, verification is a central issue to the consideration of any treaty.

The proposal invites U.S. scientists to the Soviet nuclear testing site to measure Soviet test yields using both the CORRTEX system and seismic methods. In re-turn, Soviet scientists would measure a U.S. test at the Nevada test site using both methods.

The role of the Finnish seismic network is to record seismic waves from earthquakes, explosions and other seismic events in order to identify, locate and determine the magnitudes of the events.

A comprehensive national seismic network is essential for seismological research, observational activities, and government regulations for seismic hazard mitigation and the nuclear test-ban treaty verification.

Interest in nuclear power in Finland is increasing, due to on-going new-build projects and public debate about future prospects of so-called SMRs (Small Modular Reactors).

With this in mind, communication and information sharing with media and the general public on nuclear and radiation safety has become an increasingly important success factor. In Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, known as CTBT, was adopted.

In this brief paper, some background information on the new organization to prepare for the effective implementation of the Treaty is given.

For the benefit of the scientific community, some research topics for the implementation of the Treaty are outlined. A North American Regional Seismic Networks (Guest Editors: John E. Ebel, Elizabeth Vanacore, Mitchell Withers).

The main purpose of these tests is to verify the leak-tightness of the primary circuit. These tests will take about four weeks to complete, during which time dozens of tests will be carried out at different pressure levels.

The reactor's main coolant pumps will be started for the first time. A few nuclear tests were carried out underwater and in space. The great majority, about 1, were conducted underground in ways that greatly reduced fallout – the first of them inin Nevada, USA – generating signals that have been intensively studied by seismologists.
