142. Seismic Ghost Slithers Under California [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 24: Nov-Dec 1982 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Seismic Ghost Slithers Under California From 1973 into 1978, instruments monitoring the San Andreas Fault told geophysicists that north-south distances between observing stations along the fault line were contracting. The Pacific Coast was moving north while the rest of North America was heading south! Then, in 1978, the strain eased in the far south of California only to reassert itself in a few weeks. This strange relaxation of strain seemed to propagate slowly across southern California, as seen by other instruments farther north. As the wave of relaxation moved ponderously along, like a slow flexure of the earth's strata, microearthquakes almost disappeared while the flow of radon from the ground increased, as one might expect. When the strain reappeared, radon flow diminished and a rash of microearthquakes were detected. It took about a year for the strain wave, called a "seismic ghost" by the geophysicists, to flow north from the Imperial Valley into the Los ...
143. The Magnetic Jerk Problem [Science Frontiers Website]
... : Nov-Dec 1984 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects The Magnetic Jerk Problem We reported above that the earth's magnetic field "jerked" in 1969; that is, it suddenly accelerated its westward drift. The earth's core, which through dynamo action reputedly generates the magnetic field we detect at the surface, apparently does not keep pace with the outer crust. It is this sluggishness that produces the observed westward drift of the magnetic field of about 1 meter per hour. While most geophysicists acknowledge that something significant happened to the core in 1969, the geographical extent of the "jerk" is unclear. The acceleration of the field was clearcut in Europe but obscure or undetectable over much of North America. If the jerk was geographically limited, the core perturbation probably was, too. The earth's core may, in fact, eddy and swirl like the planet's atmosphere. Going over past records, geophysicists think they have spotted another jerk in 1912; only that time the field decelerated.

144. Geomagnetic Stimulation Of Poltergeist Activity [Science Frontiers Website]
... inception dates were recorded and verified was examined. Statistical samples clearly indicated that global geomagnetic activity (aa index) on the day or day after the onset of these episodes was significantly higher than the geomagnetic activity on the days before or afterwards. The same temporal pattern was noted for historical cases and for those that have occurred more recently. The pattern was similar for episodes that occurred in North America and Europe. The results were statistically significant and suggest that these unusual episodes may be some form of natural phenomena that are associated with geophysical factors." (Gearhart, Livingston, and Persinger, M.A.; "Geophysical Variables and Behavior: XXXIII. Onsets of Historical and Contemporary Poltergeist Episodes Occurred with Sudden Increases in Geomagnetic Activity," Perceptual and Motor Skills, 62:463, 1986.) Comment. To put this interesting item in perspective, one must realize that few established scientists recognize the reality of poltergeists. From Science Frontiers #46, JUL-AUG 1986.© 1986-2000 William R.

... activity at distances greater than 150 km but less than 250 km away. The strongest correlation occurred between UFO reports and nearby seismic activity within the same month but not for previous or consequent months. Close scrutiny of daily shifts of epicenters and reports of UFOs indicated that they occurred when the locus of successive epicenters shifted across the area. These analyses were interpreted as support for the existence of strain fields whose movements generate natural phenomena that are reported as UFOs." (Persinger, M.S., and Derr, J.S.; "Geophysical Variables and Behavior: XXIII. Relations between UFO Reports within the Uinta Basin and Local Seismicity," Perceptual and Motor Skills, 60:143, 1985.) Comment. The "natural phenomena" mentioned above are probably close kin or identical to earthquake lights. An earli-er paper by Persinger alone in the same journal (60:59, 1985) links transient and very localized geophysical forces to such psychic phenomena as haunts and poltergeist activity. These two papers are the latest in a long series, mostly authored by Persinger ...

The existence of such comets, sometimes referred to as snowballs in space, has been hotly debated since it was first proposed by Prof. Louis A. Frank in 1986. New, higher resolution images from the VIS and UVI cameras aboard ...

... disks when integrated over a large area surrounding the galaxies. The halo masses, however, as inferred from the galaxies' rotation curves far exceed the masses of the bright spiral cores. The big question is "What are the dim but massive haloes composed of?" They might consist of small, faint stars or nonluminous matter of some sort. The researchers had to conclude, though, that the haloes are galactic components of "totally unknown nature." (Anonymous; New Scientist, 80:174, 1978.) GEOPHYSICS 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE TUNGUSKA EVENT Rich reviews the facts known about the fall and detonation of the famous 1908 "meteor." That this was no ordinary meteor is borne out by several curious data: (1) tree-rings in the area show an enormous acceleration of growth since 1908; (2) inhabitants of this remote region stated that the reindeer suffered from mysterious scabs in 1908; (3) there is a slight but definite increase in the radioactivity of the surviving trees; and (4) testimony indicates that the ...

... can rise to form a volcano. The plates of the earth are relatively few in number-- about a half-dozen of them cover most of the earth. Where the plates pull apart, scrape past each other, or collide, stresses are caused in the rocks. When the stresses are too great for the strength of the rock, the rock slips. This slip can occur gradually or suddenly. If it occurs suddenly, the earth shudders and earthquake results. Landsberg [1978:228 considers the prediction of natural forces in geophysical events to "lack good theoretical foundation." He tabulates sixteen geophysical fields where the status of predictions is rated as to high or low confidence levels. Those in soft fields, activities mainly in the atmosphere and the tides, are rated high; those in hard fields-- earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, solar effects-- are of moderate or low confidence levels. (" Soft" and "hard" are my terms.) Another searcher, Ryall [1967:403, finds "a statistically significant correlation ...

... most predictions about their appearances. The obvious similarity of the jets from the nucleus to electric spark machining should give pause to any curious scientist. Combine that with the strangely accelerated ions near the nucleus, cometary x-rays, and the flare up of comets at great distances from the sun during solar outbursts, and I think TT has more to do than just dismiss Juergens' and Dr Earl Milton's work as wrong.
