From April 22 through June 2, 1991, organizations from thirty-four countries participated in a test of new concepts and technologies for the rapid exchange and interpretation of data from a globally distributed seismic network. This test, the Group of Scientific Experts Second Technical Test or GSETT-2, was organized under the auspices of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament. Each participating country operated a National Data Center that collected parametric data and digital seismograms from sixty seismic stations, then forwarded these data to four Experimental International Data Centers. Each EIDC then interpreted the data to locate seismic events and distribute event bulletins to all participants.
