Abstract
The purpose of this project is to develop a controllable infrasonic source that can be used as a research tool for the early detection of tornadoes. The torch, using a propane source, will pulse at varying time intervals to create a desired frequency between 0.5 to 5 Hz. A microcontroller will be used to set the desired frequency and send an electrical current to the solenoid valve in order to control the opening and closing of that valve.
