Wave phenomena is a discovery that is only vaguely understood. Discovered by
Hannes Alfven, it is an electromagnetic phenomenon that happens on the very low
frequency of 0.9 Hertz, representing a resonant frequency of a medium that is
electromagnetically responsive with a resonant frequency of 0.9 Hertz. It is
believed that the ground of the Earth is such a medium. It has been discovered
that when a radio-wave-type receiver is tuned to lower and lower frequency,
suddenly at 0.9 Hertz a spike of radio noise is detected that corresponds to
random reverberations in a resonant medium at this frequency. It is believed
that electrically conductive strata in the Earth can create such a resonance.
difficult to create such a long wave on earth as a resonant electric circuit
operating at the speed of light (299,792 km/sec) would have to be 303,000 km in
length. However, electric transmission speed is typically lower, depending on
the characteristic of the conductor, with the ground being a poor conductor. On
this basis it is believed that a 0.9 Hertz resonance circuit could exist in the
mantle of the Earth spanning, possibly spanning from pole to pole, aligned with
the magnetic field. An electric transmission speed more than ten times slower
than the speed of light would accomplish that. Slow transmission speeds are not
uncommon. For example the transmission speed in the heliospheric current sheet
in our solar heliosphere as been measured at a mere 300 km/sec.
would one know without exciting the Alfven Wave resonance in the Earth? It is
not possible of course to build an antenna with the required wavelength. Still,
it is possible to excite the resonance with a timed electromagnetic shock
delivered at the resonance frequency. This can be achieved by utilizing the
ionosphere is the Earth's electrically conductive outer atmosphere, our
interface with space. It form a band of two electrojets around the Earth's
magnetic equator (shown above) and a smaller one around each of the north and
south magnetic pole shown in red below.
current that flows in them is a steady flowing current. The four node points
that are seen in the NASA image of the equatorial electrojets above are not a
wave phenomenon, but are zeta-pinch points where electromagnetic forces 'pinch'
the currents periodically to a smaller cross-section and thereby higher density.
When undisturbed the currents remain relatively quiet. However, when a
disturbance is introduced, the disturbance is carried with the electric current
encircling the Earth. If the current would flow at the speed of light, the
disturbance would encircle the Earth 6 times a second at the equator, though
slower in practice.
University of Tokyo has provided an extremely sensitive instrument to monitor
electromagnetic disturbances. It is located at the HAARP project site. Its three
sensors are oriented north, east, and vertical, providing full spherical
sensitivity. The signals from the sensors are amplified 40,000 times, which
makes the instrument sensitive enough to detect the faintest disturbances, such
as signals resulting from ion-cyclotron radiation generated near the equatorial
plane of the outer-magnetosphere that make their way to the ionosphere guided by
the Earth's magnetic lines of force.
On a quiet day the
instrument simply picks up noise in the 2.5 Hertz range, which appears to
correspond to the electric cycle time of the northern auroral electroject.
Lightning discharges and the Schumann resonance signals, are also detected and
sometimes become strong enough to mask signals from the ionosphere.

The Schumann resonances
The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth's electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth's surface and the ionosphere.
This global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon is named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. Schumann resonances occur because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a closed waveguide. The limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band. The cavity is naturally excited by electric currents in lightning. Schumann resonances are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum between 3 and 69 Hz, and appear as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.83, 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8
Hz. The lowest-frequency (and highest-intensity) mode of the Schumann resonance occurs at a frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz, but this frequency can vary slightly from a variety of factors, such as solar-induced perturbations to the ionosphere, which comprises the upper wall of the closed
cavity. The Schumann resonances are in principle a standing wave in the cavity
between the Earth and the ionosphere with a wavelength equal to the Earth's circumference.
resonances, or Alfven waves,
waves are low frequency magnetohydrodynamic
plasma waves or oscillations. They were first theoretically predicted by
Hannes Alfvén in the 1950's, and he earned the Nobel Prize for his work in
plasma physics. Alfvén waves are of fundamental importance in the behavior
of many laboratory and space plasmas. Basically, these waves can be thought
of as waves on a magnetic string. The magnetic field acts like a string, and
the plasma particles act like beads. Heavier beads - heavier plasma ions -
means the waves are slower and the wavelength is longer.
waves communicate information about changes in magnetic field topologies,
and are especially important in the dynamics of magnetic reconnection. For
example, changes in the auroral current magnitude and spatial
configurations, or changes in the magnetospheric configuration, involve
propagation by Alfvén waves.
Probe Instrument of CRRES space observatory
Langmuir probe, with CRESS in geosynchronous orbit, was designed to measure
the temperature and density of cold electrons and the electric fields in the
magnetosphere, as well as their spatial and temporal fluctuations. The
energy range of the measured ambient plasma was up to 10 eV and the
frequency range of the measured electric field was from dc to 1 kHz.

wave appears to be confirmed in space. It is also believed to be a resonance
within the Earth's lithosphere cavity in the mantle of the Earth, which may be
connected to earthquakes and might be useful for short-term earthquake
prediction, and also possibly earthquake causation. The magnetometer is useful
in detecting electromagnetic disturbances at the ground level.
on Haiti earthquake day
disturbance is introduced in the auroral electrojet it cycles around the path of the electrojet 2.5 times
to 3 times a second until it dissipates. The apparent resonant frequency of the electrojet
is determined by its circumference. The induction magnetometer does not
resolve events down to a single cycle, but group successive cycles together into
spectrogram images by computing the PSD (power spectral density) of successive
102.4-second segments of the data, and plotting these spectra as color/intensity
slices along a 24-hour scale.
day preceding the Haiti Earthquake (January 12, 2010 at 21:10 UTC) the
magnetometer registered significant events occurring for 1.5 days before and
after the quake. It is often sited as proof that the HAARP caused the
earthquake, which is a military project that is designed to manipulate the
ionosphere by strategically heating it, which would disrupt the naturally occurring
currents and can be applied in a pulse mode that would induce shockwaves into
the ionosphere. One of the military objectives is to enable subterranean mammography
for the detection and location of underground military installations, by means
of inducing electric signals into the ground that can be monitored from space.
induction magnetometer cannot determine where the observed phenomena originated.
Did it originate in space, or in Russia, or in Norway, or perhaps by the HAARP
project itself, or by other means?
on Haiti earthquake day
Preceding the 2011 earthquake in Japan.
A big solar flair reached the Earth on March 10 at 06:30 UT (Universal Time),
which appears to have peaked between 08:00 and 10:00, with some lesser
inductions happening till about 23:00 according to the magnetometer. By this
time the foreshocks (March 9) had already happened. The big quake happened at
on March 11. Nor did the solar flair stand out in any big way against the
background of the remaining data of powerful disturbances circling in the
electrojet 2.5 times per second in the North, being constantly renewed in an extremely
regular fashion. The Schumann resonances that one would expect from such an
event are evident for a short period. Another single brief Schumann resonance
spike is evident at the quake time, evidently resulting from the quake
The general background
pattern that we see in the spectral graph above is not what one would expect to see from natural occurrences.
The pattern is so strong that big solar flair barely stands out against it. Only precisely timed pulsing
at regular intervals would produce the kind of pattern that we see extended over 36
hours with almost no variation.
the magnetometer cannot tell us where the regularly repeated disturbances
originated that almost mask the biggest solar flair of the year. Nor does it
proof that the artificially induced pattern has caused the earthquake or similar
earthquakes. It only suggests with a relatively fair certainty that an
ionospheric pulsing has occurred at the time, of a type that the HAARP was
created to produce, and that the earthquake occurred within the numerous times
when the facility was active. The kind of high value billion dollar military
research facility that HAARP is wouldn't be sitting idle for long, but would be
frequently in use, especially to explore the new capabilities that its major
upgrade had enabled that came on line in 2007. The facility would have been
highly active in the period after the summer of 2007 with all kinds of ambitious
high-power applications for which the upgrade was installed.
(High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project) operated by the U.S. Air Force
and Navy, was designed for ultra low frequency research of the
"Active" type. Active means that the research is not focused on how
the ionosphere normally functions, but how it functions when it is actively
altered when shockwaves are induced by pulsed heating that disrupts the current
flows, and how the resulting perturbations can be utilized for military purposes
with a wide variety of potential applications. The faculty was upgraded to
deliver 5.1 Gigawatt of effective radiated power into the ionosphere to induce
heating and focused expansion. The upgrade came on line in the summer of 2007,
which made it the most powerful facility of its type in the world that 'plays'
with the immense galactic electric currents that surround our planet.
9.0-magnitude (MW) megathrust earthquake that occurred on 11 March 2011 at 14:46 JST in the western Pacific Ocean, 130 kilometers (81 mi) east of Sendai, Honshu, Japan, lasting approximately six
minutes. The main earthquake was preceded by a number of large foreshocks,
starting with a 7.2 MW event on 9 March, approximately 40 km (25 mi) from the 11 March quake, with another three on the same day in excess of 6.0
MW. Following the quake, a 7.0 MW aftershock was reported at 15:06 JST, followed by a 7.4 at 15:15 JST and a 7.2 at 15:26
JST. Over five hundred aftershocks of magnitude 4.5 or greater have occurred since the initial
of this type have happened before, though rarely. Is there a coincidence
possible with HAARP, which has the stated objective to induce extra-long waves
into the crust of the Earth for various types of objectives, such a subterranean
mammography? Such a
connection theoretically exist. The HAARP induced shock pulses would be
reflected throughout the ionosphere including into the equatorial electrojets. If the
pulses would occur at 1.1 second intervals, they might indeed trigger the
resonance of the Earth at an Alfven Wave frequency, radiating especially
the node points.
possible, also, that the in-the-ground Alfven waves can resonate at much lower
frequencies than the 0.9 Hertz peak that is generally understood as the Alfven
frequency, which may be but an upper limit. The
Langmuir probe, of the CRESS satellite had detected wave frequencies stated
as "from DC to 1 Hertz. If we look at the magnetometer readings with this
in mind, we do find extremely low frequency rumblings of the type that are
typical for induced solar disturbances happening prior to the earthquake events
for both Haiti in 2010 and Japan 2011.
magnetometer spectrograph (above) for the 09-11 March 2011 timeframe shows some
significant 'rumbling' associated with the solar flairs in the extreme-low
frequency range below 0.4 Hertz, which occurred repeatedly for 22 hours prior to
the big quake in Japan. The same type of phenomenon, though much weaker, can
also be seen in 07 March, 2011 spectrograph further above for the timeframe
prior to the (much weaker) foreshocks in Japan, so that the so-called foreshocks
and the main shock are potentially separately triggered events, caused by a
solar induced low frequency disturbances that were distributed throughout the
ionosphere, especially in areas of the node-points of the equatorial
disturbance at an even lower frequency, and weaker still is evident in the 11
January 2010 spectrograph on the day prior to the Haiti quake in 2010, with
Haiti too being close to a node point.

Interconnected Sun Part One
If an Alfven
Wave was induced at the node points (both at the coast of South America and in
South Asia) an induced Alfven wave would be projected northward along the magnetic filed lines towards the Earth magnetic
pole (8 degrees south from the geographic pole at 114W - slightly west of
Ellesmere Island). On the American continent this path would be located half-way between Haiti and California. We
had the big earthquake in Haiti at the beginning of 2010, and we have also seen a huge increase in
California in 2010 - 6 in a single year.
low-frequency solar-induced rumbling may trigger earthquake events, it is also
possible to artificially induce low-frequency rumbling with the induction of
pulsed shocks into the polar electrojet by pulsed heating, causing electric
disruptions that would be transmitted throughout the ionosphere in the same
manner as the solar inductions are transmitted. This would explain the sharp
increase in earthquake occurrences during the timeframe of the operation of
HAARP and its upgraded power after 2007. However, this increase occurs
only in the context of the dynamics of the Earth's natural tectonic forces that
nothing in the world, nor the Sun, can advance, or prevent.
are the result of tectonic forces.
It is not
possible to manufacture earthquakes. External factors can only influence the
triggering of events that must happen due to the structure of our Earth. Which
means that an increase in the frequency of earthquakes is actually desirable.
Since nothing can stop or hinder the grinding of the tectonic plates against
each other that are driven by convention forces deep within the Earth, it is
desirable to have the movements to occur as smoothly as possible, preferably in countless
little steps, rather than in giant single steps spaced long periods apart.
happens in a subduction zone, for a long period the dander increases for big
events to occur, as we saw it in Indonesia along the Java fault line that had so
little movement that it was deemed dormant. A similar situation exists in the
Cascadia subduction zone and in the northern portion of the San Andreas fault.
It had been proposed at one point around the 1980s or 90s that fluids should be
pumped into to fault line to make plates slide more readily, causing little
tremors to prevent the big one. The idea was scrapped as impractical, but the
concept still applies. The occurrence of a sharp increase in the number of
earthquakes in California may be evidence of a good thing, indicating that
stress is being gradually released. If the HAARP project had the secondary
effect to cause this, it should be applauded. The scientific irony is that no
earthquake comes too soon. They only happen far too late, by which they become
extremely big ones when they do happen.
What we see
happening in California, which seem frightening on the surface, is actually good
news. California had registered 44
earthquakes in the 330 years between 1680 and 2000 (0.13 per year), many of them
big ones. Now we have
registered 6 in a single year, on 2010 (a 46-fold upturn). This is reason for
celebration rather than fear. Would there be a connection
between the long delayed Haiti quake that (finally) happened, and the California upturn in
If an Alfven
Wave was induced in this region, one would expected to see such a pattern. The same
would also happen in South Asia with the node point at 110E over Indonesia and
135E just east off Japan. The Alfven waves would then follow essentially the
magnetic lines. In this case, one would expect to see also an upswing in the number
of quakes in Australia, which has indeed happened (11 in ten years till 2010,
vs. 36 going back to 1842 - see: List
