Earthquake or underground explosion?
Sandia researchers, as part of a group of NNSA scientists, have wrapped up years of field experiments to improve the United States’ ability to differentiate earthquakes from underground explosions, key knowledge needed to advance the nation’s monitoring and verification capabilities for detecting underground nuclear explosions.
From farm to computer lab
Demand for cybersecurity specialists is growing rapidly. As one part of an initiative to help address the growing need for cybersecurity specialists, DOE developed the Consortium Enabling Cybersecurity Opportunities & Research, or CECOR, to create educational opportunities in technical areas for minority youths.
