Is This the "Smoking Gun" re: Blackout?...08/17/03
by Mitch Battros (ECTV)
Were you aware SOHO was off-line five hours prior to, during, and after, the
August 14th blackout? It is impossible for
anyone to have come forward to make an "absolute" statement that geomagnetic
storms did not play a role. Even Nasa's
popular 'spaceweather' site did not completely rule out this possibility.
Here is Dr. Tony Phillips statement: "Readers have
asked if solar activity could be responsible for the widespread blackout in
the eastern US and Canada. Not likely.
There were no strong solar flares or geomagnetic activity yesterday to
trigger the outage." Not likely! is that a yes or
a no?. Or does it mean... possibly, but maybe not?
I have had heated disputes with Mr. Phillips in the past. I have found him
to be nothing more than a "company man" willing to
compromise his integrity for the good of the company. In this case, the
company is none other than NASA. Mr. Phillips has a
history of demoralizing reasonable 'dissent'. He attacks those who are
"outside" the company and is quick to pigeon-hole and
belittle those who oppose him. As a result of Mr. Phillips behavior and
subsequent disingenuous cause and effect reflex, I no
longer have confidence in the spaceweather.com site and Mr. Phillips display
of "subjective" analogy. I have turned my
attention, as with astronomy, to the thousands of amateur solar observers
across the nation and the world.
As part of Earth Changes TV's zeal for truth and accuracy, I search and seek
out, highly talented and credible "independent"
sources when evaluating events, predictions, trends, and outcomes. I will go
on record at this moment to state, I have
reasonable doubt corporate officials and regulators have chosen the path of
"disclosure". Information is coming forth which
suggest those in corporate administration have been ordered, or have
personally chosen, the road of "omission".
See Article: 'Disclosure vs Omission':
My intention is not to imply I have the answers. I do not. I have questions
and healthy discernment which sometimes evolves
into 'dissent' from old school ingrained corporations and academic formulas.
I have written extensively on this difficult journey
in my book 'Solar Rain'. Chapter ten: "NASA, NOAA and a Thing Called Peer
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
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
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
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
The HAARP Induction Magnetometer was provided by Prof. Kanji Hayashi of the
Department of Earth and Planetary
University of Tokyo. This instrument measures the geomagnetic field using
three orthogonal sensors aligned along the
north (Bx), magnetic east (By), and vertical (Bz) directions. The data
acquisition system samples these signals continuously at
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.
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
(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
to produce a 2-D image from the data. The DISLIN Scientific Data Plotting
library is used to generate the plots.
