Is This the "Smoking Gun" re: Blackout?...08/17/03
by Mitch Battros (ECTV)


"....What I am about to disclose is a graph produced by Prof. Kanji Hayashi of the Department of Earth and Planetary Physics,
University of Tokyo. He monitors geomagnetic fields with a devise called the 'HAARP Induction Magnetometer'.

Now, before I go further, I must disclose my reservations of popular internet theories of HAARP being some kind of human emotion mechanism to control the masses. This is in my "gray" box, meaning I will keep an open mind, but as yet have not seen reasonable evidence which suggest any such application. But remember, just because I do not believe in most of what I have read regards HAARP, does not make it "the truth", it only makes it "my truth". It is up to each individual to use their own personal sense of 'discernment'.

When venturing into areas not widely accepted by main-stream sources, I fully expect to be scrutinized, at times with extreme prejudice, for introducing new theories or condoning those who have not been accepted by existing lobbyist for large corporations. For this reason, it has become extremely important for Earth Changes TV to produce, or disclose, information that I can back up under intense pressure's of 'peer review'. You can imagine the tight-rope I must often endure. But perhaps this is how it should be. Otherwise, the total non-sense you witness on the internet, which I believe to be approx. 90%, would go unchallenged. See Article: The Challenge of a 'Shifting' Scientific Paradigm

The image below is a 24 hour time-frequency spectrogram, which shows the frequency content of signals recorded by the
HAARP Induction Magnetometer. This instrument, provided by the University of Tokyo, measures temporal variations in the
geomagnetic field in the ULF (ultra-low frequency) range of 0-5 Hz. The spectrogram images are produced by computing the
PSD (power spectral density) of successive 102.4-second segments of time-series data, and plotting these spectra as
color/intensity slices along a 24-hour scale.

Note the graph indicates a "spike" a few minutes before 20:00 hours UTC. That translates to 4:00 PM (Eastern Daylight Time). Given the short period of time charged particles would effect a power grid, would put the time frame at "exactly" the time of the August 14th blackout which was 4:11 PM (Eastern Daylight Time)

The induction magnetometer detects temporal variation of the geomagnetic field based on Faraday's law of magnetic induction. This instrument, which was provided by the University of Tokyo, is composed of three individual sensors. Each sensor is comprised of a large number of turns of fine copper wire wound around a rod with high magnetic permeability. The sensitivity of each sensor is determined by the effective area of the detection coil, that is, the cross sectional area of each winding, and the number of turns, and by magnetic flux density threading the coil. The magnetic flux density is enhanced by a factor of approximately 1,000 by the high-permeability metal core.

The induction magnetometer installed at the HAARP site is designed to detect a signal level of a few picoTesla (pT) at 1 Hz. The over all frequency response of the magnetometer is shaped by Faraday's law at frequencies below 1 Hz and by active filters at frequencies above 1 Hz. Below 1 Hz the coil response is proportional to the time derivative of the magnetic field and thereby gives a response proportional to the frequency. Above 1 Hz, signals are suppressed by a low-pass filter with a corner frequency at 2.5 Hz. The filter response diminishes by 24 dB per octave above the corner frequency and thereby eliminates interference from 60 Hz radiation. The magnetometer sensors are aligned along the magnetic north, magnetic east and vertical directions to form an orthogonal measure of the derivative of the field. The sensor outputs are amplified by 40,000 and sampled at a 10 Hz rate with 16-bit resolution in a full scale of 10 Volts.

Typical signals

Magnetic field variations of interest in this program are those induced by electric currents in the ionosphere. The major signal
categories detected by the induction magnetometer are short period magnetic pulsation's such as Pc1, Pc2, Pc3, PiB, and PiC
in a frequency range above a few tens of milliHertz. Among these, the induction magnetometer most efficiently detects Pc1
waves in the frequency range from 0.1 Hz to 3 Hz. Pc1 signals are the result of ion-cyclotron radiation generated near the
equatorial plane of the outer-magnetosphere that make their way to the ionosphere guided by the magnetic lines of force. In
addition, signals generated in the atmosphere that are caused by lightening discharges, the Schuman resonances, are also
detected and sometimes become strong enough to mask signals from the ionosphere.

Spectrogram Processing

The HAARP Induction Magnetometer was provided by Prof. Kanji Hayashi of the Department of Earth and Planetary Physics,
University of Tokyo. This instrument measures the geomagnetic field using three orthogonal sensors aligned along the magnetic
north (Bx), magnetic east (By), and vertical (Bz) directions. The data acquisition system samples these signals continuously at a
10 Hz rate with 16-bit resolution, producing time-series data.

Data processing for this instrument begins by converting the binary time-series to the HAARP standard net CDF format. These
net CDF files contain the same time-series data, but include scale factors and other meta data to provide self-describing data sets. New data files are created each day at 00:00 UTC. Each 24-hour net CDF data file is approximately 5.6 MB in size, containing 864,000 samples of Bx, By, and Bz.

Spectrograms are produced from the time-series by computing the Power Spectral Density (PSD) of successive 102.4 second
(1024 point) segments of data using the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) technique. Each 24-hour continuous time-series yields
844 individual PSD plots with 0.01 Hz resolution from 0 to 5.0 Hz. The spectrograms are visualized using a color/intensity map
to produce a 2-D image from the data. The DISLIN Scientific Data Plotting library is used to generate the plots.
