Feeling the effects of high-intensity/low-frequency sound can actually become an addiction, partially due to the release of endorphins in the body. Depending on the pitch, infrasound can cause physical pressure, fear, disorientation, negative physical and mental symptoms, explode matter, incapacitate, and kill. The physiological and psychological effects of infrasound (Hz dB and OHz dB) on persons are summarized as follows: 1. Being exposed to infrasound, a person feels headachy, fretful and tired. 2. Infrasound can cause the changes of blood pressure and heart rate. 3. In the infrasound condition with Hz and dB for over 1 hour, systolicFile Size: KB. Please note there are varying degrees in the infrasound range and those that cause the most negative and damaging effects is not a common occurrence. Infrasound disrupts the normal functioning of the middle and inner ear, leading to nausea, imbalance, impaired equilibrium, immobilization, and disorientation.

These stations are arrays and are able to determine accurately the location and size of an atmospheric explosion. Altogether there are 60 stations in the network as shown in Table Table Infrasound waves affect the central nervous and digestive system, cause pain of the head and internal organs, and interfere with the rhythm of respiration.

INTRODUCTION Infrasonic sound or infrasound is the sound produced below audible frequency range. Audible noise is determined to be between 20 Hz and Hz. Even though the threshold ofFile Size: KB.

Over the past 40 years, infrasound and low-frequency noise have attracted a great deal of adverse publicity on their effects on health, based mainly on media exaggerations and : Geoff Leventhall. audible to man and for this reason exposure to quencies has led to many unwarranted conclusions infrasound is not one of mankiuds more pressing about the effects of infrasound on man. The environmental problems. upper frequency limit of the measurement Cited by: 5. Abstract. Recent interest in adverse effects of infrasound on organisms arises from health concerns. Infrasonic sound or infrasound is the sound produced below audible frequency range. Generation of infrasound can be found everywhere on the planet. During the ´s infrasound was a fairly popular topic within the scientific g: man book. The Infiltec Model INFRA20 infrasound monitor is designed to record, display and analyze infrasound below the human hearing range in the Hz to 20 Hz band. Infrasound is produced by wind turbines, helicopters, meteors, avalanches, volcanoes, large animals like elephants, etc.5/5(2).
