Infrasound

An 8 element infrasound spread over the 3 islands that form the Wake Island Atoll. The I60US array was installed in 2015. Trees, thick tropical shrubs and grasses help to reduce wind noise at the array elements. The trees can reach heights of 25 feet, but the towering coconut palms found on most atolls are not present on the Wake Island Atoll.
