A lot, apparently. Electromagnetism is not the same thing as electromagnetic radiation.
What more needs to be said.
Now, granted.... this would take a massive amount of energy.... Such as multiple nuclear reactors....
And if they were SHIP mounted... that would be even better for delivering these electromagnetic "Ionospheric-ally reflected" effects around the world.
HAARP and Generation of Gravity Waves
-No Papers from the HAARP Research Have Directly Investigated the Generation of Gravitational Waves.
-However, the Present Power Level of 3.6 Megawatts CW, the Antenna is Broadcasting at a vertical flux level of 2.1 x 10-3 watts/m2 over a circle of radius about 30 km. This power level is comparable with levels considered significant by Gossard, 1962.

Vertical flux of energy into the lower ionosphere from internal gravity waves generated in the troposphere
Earl E. Gossard
U.S. Navy Electronics Laboratory, San Diego, California
It has been suggested by C.O. Hines that internal atmospheric gravity waves may account for many of the irregularities observed in the lower ionosphere and that these waves may have their origin in the large energy regions of the lower troposphere. The problem of vertical energy flow in the gravity-wave range of the atmospheric spectrum is examined in the present paper. Observational data on tropospheric internal waves are used to compute the energy density spectra and the spectra of vertical energy flux. It is found that a window can exist at periods of about 10 minutes to 2 hours through which fairly large amounts of energy sometimes flow out of the troposphere. Observational data at D-layer and meteor heights are compared with observations of tropospheric internal waves.

SuperDARN observations of medium‐scale gravity wave pairs generated by Joule heating in the auroral zone
George J. Sofko

Institute of Space and Atmospheric Studies, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada
It is known that Joule heating caused by currents associated with enhanced electric fields in the auroral ionosphere can generate gravity waves. Some modeling studies found that each short‐lived (∼10 min) electric field enhancement in the ionosphere leads to the generation of a single gravity wave pulse. Observational evidence of such single wave pulses has been reported in the ground‐scatter echoes seen by the SuperDARN HF radars. In this paper, we present new SuperDARN observations which show that, under certain conditions, each electric field enhancement can generate a pair of gravity waves. On December 2, 1998, the IMF Bz had a perturbation with a period of ∼100 min and caused oscillations in the ionospheric electric field at the same period. Each positive or negative half‐cycle of the oscillating electric field gave rise to one Joule heating enhancement which, in turn, generated a pair of gravity waves (two wave pulses). Six successive gravity wave pairs were observed. We suggest that the reason for two gravity wave pulses was that the Joule heating events in the present case were of longer duration than those in the previous events. We also show that the periodic velocities seen in the far‐range ionospheric echoes are due to the direct auroral electric field modulation and not to indirect modulation caused by the equatorward‐moving gravity waves.

Wow! Are there still people who believe HAARP can modify weather, let alone cause it? I thought that belief died a natural death because people came to their common senses...obviously they haven't.
There is no accounting for the strange mindsets on display in a forum such this. The more outlandish and absurd the claim, the more people want it to be true, and try and force it to be true, quoting pseudo-science rhetoric and displaying out and out ignorance on the reality of what they claim.
An earlier poster destroyed his own claimings by stating that magnetism affects sea and ocean tides! How utterly ludicrous can you get! The only thing the earth's magnetism interacts with is the solar wind from the sun, high energy particles streaming from our star. It's one of the reasons why we have aurora borealis, which is the celestial equivalent of a rainbow.
Hertz is merely a measuring designation of wavelength properties: amplitude and frequency, which are properties of radiating energy. Anything that consists of wave-like motion can have it's properties measured in Hz. A measurement in Hz of an electromagnetic wave, and one of an instance of an air wave, or even the instance of an ocean wave, simply means that the three very different and disparate mediums by which energy is propagating, does not infer at any time that the mediums are the same...they are not!
Alas, you simply cannot educate those that don't want to accept reality and the scientific understanding of it. Superstition, religious ignorance, conspiratorial paranoia and distrust, all drive the psychoses of the belligerently uneducated and modern-day troglodytes.
HAARP is simply used to measure a very small space of the ionosphere directly above the facility. The ionosphere is an area of electrons, and highly-charged particles, atoms and molecules just inside the magnetosphere surrounding our planet. It is there, acting like a shell due to ultraviolet radiation from the sun, and one particular beneficial property is the propagation of radio waves, but this does not mean radio waves that can be targeted or are steerable to a location on the otherside of the planet...the propagation is reflective, not focussed.
Let's state it plain and simple...man is not capable of controlling the weather, certainly not in real time. The weather is simply too large in scale, and is derived from so many incalculable variables, that we just do not have the computing or electric power to create so much as a wind fart. We might be able to 'seed' clouds, but we cannot control them, nor the downpour that might result from such seeding, and HAARP cannot be used to seed. HAARP cannot cause earthquakes, or cause volcanoes to erupt, tornados to spin, or even flush my toilet. It is used to send out a narrow beam of high energy to interact with the particles in the ionosphere above the facility in Gakoma, and a vast array of instruments record and measure the consequence of the interaction. The end result is to understand the natural energy interactions of our sun's solar wind on the ionsphere, and how it effects our radio waves, so that we can build better communications devices and instruments. That's it! There is no apocalyptic, doom-laden death ray machine behind it.
Please adjust your mindset accordingly for your own sanity, and that of other's despair. Thank you.

As we all know, Hurricane Sandy has it's eye set on NY/NJ, beginning Monday night. My question: Is HAARP feeding Sandy the energy she needs, that will cause the "October Surprise" we've all been hearing about for the past few years??? October Surprise 1st Mention Alex Jones July 2010 Yes, I know it's Alex Jones...but it's the 1st time i can recall hearing the phrase "October Surprise."
High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (H.A.A.R.P.)
HAARP will zap the upper atmosphere with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam. It is an advanced model of an "ionospheric heater." (The ionosphere is the electrically-charged sphere surrounding Earth's upper atmosphere. It ranges between 40 to 60 miles above the surface of the Earth.)
Second concept: As Earth rotates, HAARP will slice across the geomagnetic flux, a donut-shaped spool of magnetic strings -- like longitude meridians on maps. HAARP may not 'cut' these strings in Gaia's magnetic mantle, but will pulse each thread with harsh, out-of-harmony high frequencies. These noisy impulses will vibrate geomagnetic flux lines, sending vibrations all through the geomagnetic web. " "The image comes to mind of a spider on its web. An insect lands, and the web's vibrations alert the spider to possible prey. HAARP will be a man-made microwave finger poking at the web, sending out confusing signals, if not tearing holes in the threads. " "Effects of this interference with symphonies of Gaia's geomagnetic harp are unknown, and I suspect barely thought of. Even if thought of, the intent (of HAARP) is to learn to exploit any effects, not to play in tune to global symphonies. "
How are Hurricanes Created?
The birth of a hurricane requires at least three conditions. First, the ocean waters must be warm enough at the surface to put enough heat and moisture into the overlying atmosphere to provide the potential fuel for the thermodynamic engine that a hurricane becomes. Second, atmospheric moisture from sea water evaporation must combine with that heat and energy to form the powerful engine needed to propel a hurricane. Third, a wind pattern must be near the ocean surface to spirals air inward. Bands of thunderstorms form, allowing the air to warm further and rise higher into the atmosphere. If the winds at these higher levels are relatively light, this structure can remain intact and grow stronger: the beginnings of a hurricane!
Hurricane Sandy "Live Tracker"
I've also been hearing chatter about this:
GERMANY TO REPATRIATE & AUDIT 150 TONS OF GOLD RESERVES FROM NY FED!!!
And this:Hurricane Sandy as the October election surprise
And now, a word from our sponsors:
Rahm Emanuel on the Opportunities of Crisis
Combine all that, with this....and i'd say "THE PERFECT STORM" indeed!!!
edit on 27-10-2012 by SpittinTruth because: Changed links to youtube vids
Wouldn't it be more efficient to use those ship based nuclear reactors to directly heat the water?
Actually I'm saying your idea is pretty silly and btw, hurricanes are not steered by "paths" of water vapor.
Naturally, No.... they are steered by the natural patterns of wind in the troposphere.
HAARP could be used to direct a concentration of several arrays of directed electromagnetic energy directly at the oceans surface in the "Path" that "They" want the hurricane to take.
I'm certainly no meteorologist but.....? And aren't areas of high and low pressure equally or more responsible for steering than wind?
