Abstract Burning oil fields in the Persian Gulf may be considered as an intense source of infrasonic waves. In the paper propagation of these waves to high latitudes is discussed. Methods for sensitive detection of such a distant source are presented. Infrasonic data from two Swedish infrasonic stations, recording at 2 Hz (Lulea (65.7N, 22.5E) and Lycksele (64.6N, 18.7E) during the periods: February 6th - March 14, 1991 and June 7 - 13th, 1991) are examined in order to demonstrate the reception of these long distance infrasonic waves.
