LOS ALAMOS, N.M., December 17, 2015--Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have developed a new, more thorough method for detecting underground nuclear explosions by coupling two fundamental elements--seismic models with gas-flow models--to create a more complete picture of how an explosion's evidence seep to the surface. Their findings will appear in today's edition of the journal Nature's Scientific Reports in a paper titled, "Radionuclide Gas Transport through Nuclear Explosion-Generated Fracture Networks."
