Short summary
Before many catastrophic phenomena such as earthquakes, sound is generated at a very low frequency. It is already established that it can disturb the upper layer of the atmosphere – the ionosphere. Control of disasters' precursors is important. Using the unique, powerful sound generator, whose loudness is comparable to an ascending jet, we have constructed the theory and conducted a series of experiments trying to model acoustic action of disasters on the ionosphere.
