Abstract

Studies of UNEs effects on seismic activity are basically concentrated in two directions:
  1. a)

    research of seismic activity caused by underground nuclear explosions for the purposes of nuclear tests verification;

     
  2. b)

    investigation of probable initiation of earthquakes by UNEs with a view of studing their impact on the environment.
