HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is a world-class ionospheric research facility that is dedicated to researching the physical and electrical properties of the Earth’s ionosphere. HAARP experiments involve high energy, high frequency radio transmitters used to stimulate small, well-defined volumes of ionosphere. These investigations focus on studying the properties and behavior of ionospheric plasma, which can lead to improved communications, navigation, and surveillance systems for both civilian and military use.
For our project, we would like to research results put out by the facility and physics of the electromagnetic waves that HAARP produce and the relationship between the ionosphere and Earth. We will investigate the conspiracy theories that suggest HAARP is being used by the Department of Defense to control the weather, and we will include home-made multimedia demonstrations of the effects of the high frequency waves and atmospheric plasma.
