GPS monitoring nuclear weapons testing..

This is a interesting article from the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists which discusses the use of GPS to monitor Nuclear weapons testing. It appears that even underground weapons testing causes major atmospheric disruptions which result in GPS timing and hence location errors.

Initial results from analysis of North Korea’s second alleged nuclear test in 2009 produced not only seismic waves as expected, but created an atmospheric shockwave in the region which impacted the GPS reception of GNSS receiving stations in Eastern Asia.

The article seems to suggest another role of the rapidly expanding network of GPS stations used for local RTK networks.. Test Ban Treaty monitoring ?

  1. Zmodernizowa?em swoj? firm? od kiedy mam monitoring gps z firmy Poltrack. Od teraz ?aden klient nie oskar?y mnie bezpodstawnie, ?e nie przywie?li?my towaru na czas. Do naszych pojazdów zamontowa?em monitoring gps i mam teraz ?wi?ty spokój. Dzi?ki monitoringowi na bazie GPS mog? nawet stwierdzi? po której stornie ulicy znajduje si? nasz samochód. Monitoring gps przyczyni? si? do tego, ?e moi kierowcy nie mog? sobie pozwoli? na dorabianie po pracy. Teraz udaje mi si? zaoszcz?dzi?! System monitoring gps firmy Poltrack jest teraz jednym z wa?niejszych narz?dzi pracy. A zaoszcz?dzone pini?dze zainwestuj? w leasing kolejnych pojazdów
