Abstract:

The infrasonic acoustic array of Penas was installed for the purpose of detecting and investigating the microbarographic disturbances of the atmosphere produced by natural or artificial sources. Since the Penas installation was the first one to be operated in the Southern Hemisphere a special purpose of the array was to investigate in detail the numerous sources of infrasound located in this hemisphere. Another purpose of the research was to investigate the influence of the extraordinary conditions of the high Bolivian Altiplano on the reception of infrasonic signals.
