FINES is a small aperture array station comprised of 16 substations and is one of 50 primary monitoring stations of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban-Treaty Organization (CTBTO). The objective of this seismic monitoring is to detect and locate underground nuclear explosions. The seismic data are used to distinguish between an underground nuclear explosion and the numerous natural and man-made seismic events that occur every day, such as earthquakes and mining explosions.
