A nuclear test by North Korea will generate sound waves, seismic shock waves similar to an earthquake and, if the test site is not properly sealed, a spike in levels of radiation that will all be quickly detected by a global network of sensors, analysts say.
"If North Korea tests, it's highly likely we'll find it out. We have before," said Mark Hibbs, a Berlin-based senior associate in the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace's Nuclear Policy Program.
"After sensors register what looks like a test, we can anticipate there will be some surveillance aircraft flying around the neighborhood and following weather patterns to try to pick up nuclides," he added, referring to particles that would indicate an atomic explosion.
