Large CTBTO presence at the American Geophysical Union’s Fall Meeting

AGU Fall meeting 2013

On 9 December Executive Secretary, Lassina Zerbo, a geophysicist by profession, will speak at the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) annual Fall Meeting in San Francisco. A special session will be dedicated to the CTBTO, convened by Canadian geophysicist David Strangway:

– Monday 9 December, 1.40pm (Moscone South, Room 102): invited talk by CTBTO head Lassina Zerbo on “Global Monitoring of the CTBT: Progress, Capabilities and Plans” at the session on “Global Nuclear Security: The Alliance of International Policy and Science”

– Friday 13 December, 1.40pm (Moscone South, Room 104): Union Session on the CTBTO
