While the concepts of resonance are thought to be fairly simple,
science has found that its actually more indepth and complicated, and
Its known that variations in the Schumann resonance correspond to the seasons,
solar activity, the Earths magnetic fields, and water aerosols in the environment
Take for instance lightening. I commented in another thread that light is both a particle and
a wave. Lets look at lightning and find something fascinating. Bursts create electromagnetic waves,
and some waves...if they combine actually create a "heartbeat" that is found to be measured as
The Schumann resonance.
These waves, in this resonance are a tool for scientists to analyze the Earth's weather, and its electric
environment. In the past scientists were limited to data from instuments on Earth,
but now things have changed.
NASA's Vector Electric Field Instrument (VEFI) aboard the U.S. Air Force's
Communications/Navigation Outage Forecast System (C/NOFS) satellite is actually able
to detect The Schumann resonance from space!
NASA Goddard's Vector Electric Field Instrument (VEFI) aboard the U.S. Air Force's Communications/Navigation Outage Forecast System (C/NOFS) -- shown here -- has detected a special kind of low frequency wave leaking out into space from Earth's lower atmosphere.

/NOFS, of course, measured them much higher – at altitudes of 250 to 500 miles. While models suggest that the resonances should be trapped under the ionosphere, it is not unheard of that energy can leak through. So the team began looking for waves of the correct, very low frequency in the observations from VEFI – an instrument built at NASA Goddard with high enough sensitivity to spot these very faint waves. And the team was rewarded. They found the resonance showing up in almost every orbit C/NOFS made around Earth, which added up to some 10,000 examples.
Thank you for bringing this fantastic disucssion to ATS!
