1. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART IV: CRUSTAL TURBULENCE: 16.Earthquakes [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org TABLE OF CONTENTS THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: Part IV: Crustal Turbulence by Alfred de Grazia CHAPTER SIXTEEN EARTHQUAKES The ancients may have been more familiar with earthquakes than modern man:... The earth shook and trembled... the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken... Then the channels of the waters were seen... and the foundations of the world were discovered.,. The mountains skipped like rams... [The divine power removes the mountains... overturns them... shakes the earth out of her place. In these and many more lines, the Hebrew Psalmists commemorated times of catastrophe. World myth contains thousands of such songs and stories. Some can be located in time; most cannot. But, little by little, the science of myth will move to help the science of the Earth; and geology will move to interpret mythology. Then the ages of quantavolution will assume a clearer shape. The deep valleys, rifts, and canyons of ...

The potential for devastation of property that otherwise could be secured, and the loss of life that otherwise could be prevented, are powerful reasons to find predictive factors. Some scientists have become aware of a correlation between sunspots and Earthquakes and want to use the sunspot data to help predict earthquakes. The theory is that an intensification of the magnetic field can cause changes in the geo-sphere. The NASA and the European Geosciences Union have already put their stamp of approval on the sunspot hypothesis, which suggests that changes in the sun-earth environment affects the magnetic field of the earth that can trigger earthquakes in areas prone to it. It is not ...

4. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART TWO: GEOLOGICAL ISSUES: CHAPTER FOURTEEN: ATHENS QUAKES* [Quantavolution Website]
... had the reverse complex. They might actually time their assaults with shaking of their enemies as witness the battle of Jericho where Joshua's men paraded around the town until the walls came tumbling down and they might rush through the breaches. Ancient precedents were not the verbal currency of these several days, however. One heard only that "Athens has never had an earthquake." Well, almost never, and never in this generation. No matter that, in the times of its founding, Poseidon, god of the sea and of earthquakes, wanted to take over Attica, and you know what that means. Pallas Athene had other ideas, and Zeus lent her a helping hand, so Athens survived. But Plato's Criton tells us that Solon was told by the Egyptian priests that, once upon a time, his Athenian ancestors lost an army that was struggling for the control of Atlantis when that fair land sank in furious trembling beneath the waves. This was fixed at 9000 years before, but possibly the years had been shorter in an earlier age- since ...
5. The Jupiter Effect: The Planets as Triggers of Devastating Earthquakes by John Gribbin and Stephen Plagemann [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 4 (Winter 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents The Jupiter Effect: The Planets as Triggers of Devastating Earthquakes by John Gribbin and Stephen Plagemann (Walker and Company, 720 Fifth Ave., New York, N.Y. 10019; $7.95) Reviewed by Robert W. Bass Professor of Physics and Astronomy Brigham Young University Observations of sunspot cycles since the year 1604 produce a peak amplitude period of 11.05 years. Professor Karl D. Wood (Nature, vol. 240 (1972), p. 91) has published a computation of the height of tides raised on the Sun by Venus, Earth and Jupiter for a four-hundred year interval beginning at 1600 A.D., which reveals a peak-amplitude period of 11.08 years and when graphed as a function of time gives a curve which agrees fairly closely, both qualitatively and quantitatively with the observational data. No less an astronomer than E. Opik, whose order of magnitude estimates (Irish Astron. J., 1973) confirm Wood's thesis, regards this work as important ...
6. The Causal Source for the Geological Transients at 2300BC [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1999:1 (Jul 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents The Causal Source for the Geological Transients at 2300BC by Moe Mandelkehr Summary The geological disturbances on the Earth at 2300BC took the form of crustal movements, sea level changes, earthquakes and geomagnetic phenomena. The most likely scenario is that these effects were due to the growth of glaciers arising from the Earth's cooling. The glacial growth took water out of the ocean areas, causing an essentially synchronous drop in sea level around the Earth. The glacial crustal loading on land areas and the corresponding decreased loading in the water areas resulted in crustal warping in many regions and widespread earthquakes. Introduction A large body of evidence testifies to the occurrence of a sizeable geological disturbance at about 2300BC. This took the form of crustal movements, sea level changes, earthquakes and geomagnetic transient phenomena. My previous article attempted to develop a causal source for the climatic changes; the intent of this article is to do the same for the geological disturbances. My premise is that the event at ...
7. Sun 13 July Abstracts [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Century B.C.E., Thales, Anaximander, and Anaximenes, and by Xenophanes from neighbouring Colophon, taken together may be viewed as constituting the agenda of a "Milesian School". The agenda included a survey of the known kosmos (the orderly arrangement of the inhabited world surrounded by regularly moving heavenly bodies); redefinitions of divinity; and theories of the natural processes, constantly in operation, by which both kosmos and divinity are to be understood. It also included explanations of phenomena most men deemed terrifying: thunder, lightning, earthquakes, eclipses, and periodic destruction of the kosmos itself. It set about to explain these phenomena in terms of the same elemental processes (transformations of water, rarefaction and condensation of air, separating out of fire, air, water and earth, periodic reabsorption of these elements into a state of dynamic equilibrium) as it invoked to explain the orderly arrangement of the earth and the heavenly bodies. In so doing, it implied the baselessness of the traditional Olympian religion which attributed lightning and earthquakes to whims of Zeus and Poseidon ...

9. Astronomy And Earthquakes [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 29: Sep-Oct 1993 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Astronomy And Earthquakes "Large earthquakes in southern California with epicenters between 33 and 36 N have statistically significant 12 hourly, lunar fortnightly and 18.6-yr periodicities. Smaller earthquakes in the same region do not display these periodicities. A search for tidal effects associated with these periodicities shows that large earthquakes have significant correlations with the times and orientations of daily/semi-daily tidal stresses while the lunar fortnightly terms are associated with the ocean tides along the Southern Californian coast." (Kilston, S., and Knopoff, L; "Lunar-Solar Periodicities of Large Earthquakes in Southern California," Nature, 304:21, 1983.) Comment. The literature contains many similar correlations for quakes of various sizes, for various restricted geographical areas, and for various depths. Many of these studies are summarized in our Catalog volume Earthquakes, Tides, Unidentified Sounds. For more information on this book, visit: here. One tidal strain component ...

Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 62: Mar-Apr 1989 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects What is exploding 400 miles beneath our feet? Earthquake statistics as a function of depth. Obviously, something we do not understand is happening at about 600km. (Adapted from Scientific American, 260:48, Jan 1989. The author of the article we review here, C. Frohlich, was also the reviewer of our Catalog volume Earthquakes, Tides, Unidentified Sounds for a scientific journal. He liked the book but pointed out that we had overlooked an important earthquake anomaly: the deep-focus earthquake. He was right; we never realized how anomalous deep quakes are! Frohlich's review and those of other specialists make us realize how many more anomalies there are out there, even though we have produced 25 volumes of descriptions of hard-toexplain phenomena. Be this as it may, let us see what Frohlich has to say about deep-focus earthquakes. Why are they anomalous? Can't quakes occur at any depth in the earth? ...
