             abstract = "Any search effort for gravitationalwaves (GWs) using 
                         interferometric detectors like LIGO needs to be able to identify 
                         if and when noise couples into the detectors output signal. The 
                         critical coupling likelihood (CCL) method has been developed to 
                         characterize potential noise coupling and in the future aid GW 
                         search efforts. By testing two hypotheses about pairs of channels, 
                         CCL is able to identify undesirable coupled instrumental noise 
                         from potential GW candidates. Our preliminary results show that 
                         CCL can associate up to \∼80% of observed artifacts with 
                         SNR 8 with local noise sources, while reducing the duty cycle of 
                         the instrument by 15%. An approach like CCL will become 
                         increasingly important as GW research moves into the advanced LIGO 
                         era, going from the first GW detection to GW astronomy.",
