HAARP has been getting a lot of flack lately for causing earthquakes, enhancing cyclones, and generally affecting other natural processes in a negative way. If this capability is possible then the research papers that prove and describe how this is achieved will be classified as top secret. What we do have is access to many other declassified papers that lay the groundwork to describe many of the capabilities and effects that HAARP can produce. By examining and learning about the science behind HAARP, the aim is to shine some light on this controversial topic and either put it to rest or confirm this capability.

Before getting started here are some definitions to help understand the science.

Tesla: This is a unit of measurement for magnetic flux density. In simpler terms this measures voltage through time and 2D space. It is commonly used to measure the strength of the magnetosphere (about 30-50 μT).

ELF: Extremely Low Frequency. This is a term used to describe radiation frequencies in the range of 3 to 30 Hz or cycles per second.

Schumann resonances: These are a set of frequencies in the ELF range that the earth naturally resonances at. Between the Earth's surface and the ionosphere 7.83 Hz is one of the common frequencies mentioned with peaks also at 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz. Different parts of the Earth resonate at different frequencies with the surface of the Earth resonating at 7.48Hz, also with peeks at other frequencies.

So lets start with the HAARP facility,

Approximately 10 million Watts of prime power will be required when the transmitter system is operating at full power, (3.6MW)... By the time it reaches the ionosphere, the intensity of the HF signal is less than 3 microwatts (0.000003 watt) per cm2... Under optimum conditions, signals generated using ionospheric interaction techniques may be measured in the tens of pT range and tend to be strongest at frequencies around 2 kHz. It is designed to transmit a narrow beam of high power radio signals in the 2.8 to 10 MHz frequency range... ELF signals are generated in the ionosphere at an altitude of around 100 km. Frequencies ranging from below one Hz to about 20 kHz can be generated through this ionospheric interaction process.

HAARP is generally promoted as a communication device for submarines. It does this by sending out high frequency electromagnetic waves into a targeted region of the ionosphere about 75 - 100 km high. By quickly heating and cooling this region of the atmosphere it produces low frequency waves than can then pass through water and be picked up by the submarine. There is another affect that occurs when the ionosphere is heated, that is the amplification of the signal through the magnetosphere

The above picture shows how the energy from HAARP is distributed through the different layers of the atmosphere. Along the bottom are the wavy lines of the electromagnetic signal bouncing between the surface of the earth and the ionosphere between 0 and 75km up. Above this region where the ionosphere is heated is the magnetosphere and the energy continues to propagate up a column about 10 - 20km radius and receives an amplification effect. Another interesting effect describe in this paper is "as the frequency increases from 0.5 to 2 kHz the power of the signal on the ground increases by about one order of magnitude."

One way to look at the magnetosphere is as a force field for the Earth, it protects the Earth from the solar winds and helps stabilise the conditions here on the ground. As the shielding of a tank protects the occupants from bullets fired on the outside, if you are inside the tank and start shooting then the bullets are going to bounce around and is a very dangerous place to be. This bouncing around is what happens with the energy directed into the magnetosphere and is described by the term 'wave injection'

While manipulating the ionosphere to act as a ELF transmitter and send signals back to the ground, signals are also sent through the magnetosphere. These signals curve through the magnetic field and can have a very long reach > 10,000km. This interaction has been known since at least the 1980's from experiments with the Siple transmitter in Antarctica. As you start to research this area there are many interactions and ways to induce signals within the magnetosphere.

There is an estimated 14 - 36 HAARP type facilities around the world and many working under classified conditions. Depending on HAARPs maximum reach it is reasonable to assume that there would be at least 2 or 3 different facilities that could focus their transmission power onto a single target anywhere in the world to further enhance the signal strength. The combination of HAARP transmissions is just a theoretical assumption and may not be required to produce an effect, just enhances it. There are also a large number of satellites kept under a security blanket that may contribute to the undisclosed operations and capabilities of related HAARP technology.

Earthquakes that have been suspected of influence from HAARP include Chile, Haiti, China and others. It is unreasonable to suspect HAARP is responsible for every earthquake as they do occur naturally, but if man made earthquakes are a reality then it is a very underhanded, sneaky and powerful weapon. Similarities between earthquakes that are suspected to be HAARP induced include:

- Highly geometric cloud formations that may quickly form and dissipate
- Earthquake lights that resemble something between the Aurora and a malformed rainbow
- Shallow epicentre generally around 10 - 20km deep

Together this evidence indicates that the source of the earthquake does have some atmospheric relationship. The connection between solar activity and earthquakes is one that has received a lot of investigation over the years. The presence of highly geometric cloud formations is a very strong indication of a man made influence compared to the more organic and naturally occurring cloud processes. With the presence of earthquake lights there is some concentration of electromagnetic energy to facilitate the disruption. Earthquakes have been known to have the epicentre at all levels of depth up to about 650km deep.

So how is it done? One theory is based on directing the energy into the ground to heat it up, cause expansion and form an earthquake. There are a lot of problems including a loss of signal strength in sending a HF signal like a microwave a long way and deep into the ground. Masers are one technology that does improve this capability by working like a laser, except it focuses microwaves instead of light. Penetrating enough energy deep into the ground to heat it up is still be a big problem.

What is more likely is using ELF and even lower frequencies to induce resonance vibrations into the ground deep below. ELF signals are much better at passing through water and earth than HF and is why they are used to communicate with submarines. By tuning the signal to a specific frequency it supplies a tiny bit of energy at the right time to gradually build up the targets natural resonance frequency. Where the energy comes from is not is a short sharp burst of energy, but with the consistent gradual build up over time. One analogy would be with the pistons in your car and how they cycle up and down at a specific frequency. When you go for a long drive your engine does not make one big explosion, but 100,000's of small ones all perfectly timed to build on each other and move the car.

The Mythbusters confirm that a small amount of energy repetitively oscillating at the right frequency does produce a very big vibration. It only took a 6 pound weight and 1 hour to get a big heavy steel bridge fully shaking. This means that the ELF waves produced by HAARP do not need to be at a high energy level, but they do need to be consistent and at the right frequency. So lets take a look at what HAARP was doing in the days leading up to the recent Japan earthquakes.

The HAARP Induction Magnetometer measures temporal variation of the geomagnetic field, while The HAARP Fluxgate Magnetometer measures geomagnetic storminess. Basically this means what is happening in the Earth's magnetic field and is used to read the results of HAARP experiments amongst other collected data. In the days leading up to the Japan quakes a fairly constant signal at around 2.5Hz was being produced. Next a very strong signal below 0.5Hz was added and the storminess dramatically increased. After about a day of both these frequencies the big magnitude 9.0 quake hit. About 4 hours later the 2.5Hz was stopped while the 0.5Hz and below signal continued for about another day. Once all the signals stopped the storminess settled back down.

On the balance of probabilities I would have to vote that HAARP can cause earthquakes with the highly geometric cloud formation really sealing it by shouting out that something is not natural here. I would like to thank all the ATS members who helped collected all the bits and pieces of the puzzle to help form it into one cohesive picture. With something this big there is still a lot more evidence and parts of picture to collect. For the debunkers, please use reasoned arguments if you wish to debate as I will not engage in slanderous, ridiculing or flaming comments.

There is already a thread on this topic.
with almost the exact same title. I suggest you read it and post any new info you have in it as the mods will no doubt close this thread.

Good job! S&F I see you did your homework. I emailed HAARP about a week ago because their website had an email address for questions. I just asked a few things about the induction magnetometer but I have not heard back from them.

I think you have some very interesting information here! A very good treat to read! If the thread gets closed maybe you could re-post this information under a new title...something like "Everything you wanted to know about HAARP"

I think haarp just observes everything so we can know more about it. I read teh manual on the official site and it just talks about mapping out the universe.

People a few years ago would blame the unknown gods on everything that went wrong.

Now they blame the unknown haarp.

I found a good video with lots of information on it from actual scientists verifying that HAARP Tectonic weapons (Black Ops) could indeed exist and can indeed cause earthquakes, even mega-quakes. Check it out and see what you think.
