21. Recent Origin and Decay of the Earth's Magnetic Field [SIS C&C Review $]
... moment during the last century. When the great scale of the phenomenon is considered, this must seem a remarkably large and rapid secular change, not paralleled for any other worldwide geophysical property."

As Professor Barnes' paper is an attack on conventional palaeomagnetism, it is worthwhile summarising the orthodox position, which may not ...
22. Ice Core Evidence [The Velikovskian $]
... submerged in comparatively recent geologic time. (9) The only reason for rejecting this hypothesis is the catastrophic requirement inherent in lowering these canyons deep below the oceans. Using straightforward geophysical evidence, Johnson then showed how neither turbidity currents, nor land slides, nor submarine spring sapping can account for the creation of these remarkable sea canyons. (10) What ... But glaciologists and climatologists expect us to accept that the coldest region of Greenland completely melted away while all the warmer regions did not. This is not only illogical, but also geophysically and thermodynamically absurd. According to Lister, during 1952 to 1954, Greenland was losing a meter of water in its ablation zone (or over a meter of ice, since ... 81. Pielou, op. cit., p. 271. 82.

23. Geophysical Time Series and Catastrophism [Catastrophism Geology $]
... From: Catastrophist Geology Year 1 No. 1 (June 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents Geophysical Time Series and Catastrophism Vít Klemeš Hydrology Research Division, Inland Waters Directorate Department of the Environment Ottawa, Canada. Introduction The old goal of a great many Egyptian rulers and governments to harness the Nile River and 'make use of the Nile water to the fullest possible extent' (Hurst et al., 1965) has led to extensive studies of hydrological records of the Nile River and, in particular, of the long series of ... 0.7. Similar empirical findings were later made with regard to economic and other historic time series. The failure of the exponent h to accord with theory underlying eq. (1) has been labelled the Hurst phenomenon. It has long resisted an adequate theoretical explanation and geophysicists and mathematicians still have not reached agreemeht as to its cause. One theoretical model that accounts for the Hurst phenomenon is a stochastic process called fractional Brownian noise (fBn) put forward by Mandelbrot (1965) and later developed by himself and his collaborators (a ...

Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 38: Mar-Apr 1985 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Geophysics: the sick man of science "In order to be a famed geo-scientist and belong to the inclusive club of fully accepted geophysicists in their unknown thousands, one must kneel on the hassock and swear allegiance to the following tenets regardless of any scientific considerations: "Tenet 1. That the moment-of-inertia of the Earth has never changed. "Tenet 2. That the Earth contains a large ... core composed of iron. "Tenet 3. That the continents are drifting as a result of unknown forces. "These must be held with religious fervour, dissenters are just not to be tolerated, the devotees feeling it their right, and indeed duty, to defend the creed against all criticism by any means of chicanery and of sharp-practice within their power, however crude and improper, so long as they judge they can get away with it, but all the time representing themselves to the world as acting with judicial calm in ...

He has written two unpublished books: the first on cultural and geophysical events occurring at 2300 BC (excerpts of this book have been published by the SIS) and the second book dedicated to the thesis that all the early mythology developed from an encounter of the Earth with a massive meteoroid stream in 2300BC.

Powell, a physicist at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York, in a report before the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics in Moscow in 1971. (The piezoelectric effect refers to the setting up of an electric potential in certain rocks- particularly quartz- as the result of stress changes.) Some evidence exists that the stress accumulated in rocks over a period of years may begin ... 3, 1977 Earthquake Lights Earthquake lights- luminous phenomena that have been observed to occur at the time of some earthquakes- are worthy of additional scientific investigation, according to a U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior, scientist John S. Derr, a geophysicist at the USGS Denver, Colo., field center, said there are difficulties in trying to explain these phenomena because very few scientists have worked on the question of earthquake lights. "The reason," he said," is simply that most reports of ...
