Abstract
IN VIEW OF THE RECENT DEVELOPMENT OF UNIFIED MAGNITUDE MEASURES FOR SEISMIC ESTIMATION OF THE YIELDS OF NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS THE STATISTICAL PROCEDURES FOR VERIFYING COMPLIANCE WITH TEST BAN TREATIES WILL BE RECAST IN A MULTIVARIATE FRAMEWORK. THIS WILL BE DONE BY CONSIDERING YIELD CLUSTERING, DATA CENSORING, CORRELATIONS AND STOCHASTIC TEST SITE BIAS TERMS. THE POSSIBLE EFFORT OF LOWERING TREATY THRESHOLD LIMITS WILL ALSO BE CONSIDERED.
