Romanian authorities have designated National Institute for Earth Physics as the National Data Centre (ROM_NDC) of Romania for implementation and verification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT).
ROM_NDC is responsible for operation and maintenance of the certified seismological station Cheia-Muntele Rosu (MLR) included in the auxiliary seismic network of the International Monitoring System (IMS). MLR fulfills its mission by locally recording of continuous seismic data and forwarded directly to the International Data Center (IDC) in Vienna, upon request, at any time through on-line connections and VSAT transmission. ROM_NDC staff ensures station monitoring, data quality checking, transmission and archiving.
Another major role of ROM_NDC is to provide Romanian authorities with technical advice on all aspects of CTBT verification, including assessments of events likely to create concern in the framework of compliance with the CTBT.
