31. On The Trail Of The Fifth Force [Science Frontiers Website]
... is supposed, according to some theories, to modify Newton's Law of Gravitation, and become measurable at distances of about 100 to 1000 meters. The Eotvos results may also be explicable in terms of laboratory air currents. But the fifth force may be showing up in geophysical experiments. "One of the most comprehensive geophysical experiments so far has been conducted by Frank Stacey at University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, and his colleagues. Working in two metal mines, the researchers have measured a gravitational constant that is 0.7 percent greater ... that measured in the laboratory-- suggesting the presence of a fifth force."

... summarises the motivation behind Mr Corliss' Sourcebook Project which is basically a classified collection of articles recounting curious observations and anomalous data. This material has been gathered from the conventional and not-so-conventional scientific literature of the past two hundred years, ranging from NATURE and the Journal of Geophysical Research to the Edinburgh New Philosophical Journal and PENSEE. Two earlier volumes in the series, "Strange Planet" and "Strange Artifacts", have already been reviewed in this column (see "Fort for Today" in SISR I:1), and ... subject. GROWTH RHYTHMS AND THE HISTORY OF THE EARTH'S ROTATION edited by G. D. Rosenberg and S. K. Runcorn Wiley 1975. Using the history of the Earth's rotation as a unifying theme, the editors present a collection of papers spanning various aspects of geophysics, astronomy, palaeontology and biology which survey methods of measuring the Earth's rotation, past and present. The direct techniques comprise biological growth increment measurement and ancient and modern astronomical observations, while the indirect methods involve theoretical calculations based on geophysical assumptions such as tidal friction ...

With him passed the only prominent geophysicist who demanded a hearing for Velikovsky's proposals. Twelve years earlier, on the eve of the International Geophysical Year, he wrote to Velikovsky (January 2, 1957): "Scientific discoveries and ideas are produced by the intuition, creativeness and genius of a man.

Hess died on August 25, 1969, barely five weeks after the Apollo XI flight, leaving vacant his position as chairman of the Space Science Board of the National Academy of Sciences.

36. The earth is expanding and we don't know why [Science Frontiers Website]
... as if by magic by assuming that the earth was smaller in the past. This seems, on the surface, to be a crazy idea. Why would an entire planet swell up like a balloon? Hugh Owen answers in this way: "The geological and geophysical implications of such Earth expansion are so profound that most geologists and geophysicists shy away from them. In order to fit with the reconstruction that seems to be required, the volume of the Earth was only 51 per cent of its present value, and the surface ... 64 per cent of that of the present day, 200 million years ago. Established theory says that the Earth's interior is stable, an in ner core of nickel iron surrounded by an outer layer that behaves like a fluid. Perhaps we are completely wrong and the inner core is in some state nobody has yet imagined, a state that is undergoing a transition from a high-density state to a lower density state, and pushing out the crust, the skin of the Earth, as it expands." (Owen, Hugh; ...

... impacts by giant meteorites. The author states: "It is now well established that at one time a year of 360 days was in use" and he rejects the idea of some historians that this was due to lack of sophisticated measuring methods, rather than a geophysical fact. There is an excellent criticism of the Milankovitch theory of ice ages which is contrasted with the much more likely theory of pole shift due to frequent meteoritic bombardments and other cosmic events. Readers of Ice Ages (subtitled "Solving the Mystery!") ... detected by J. Norman and other geologists at Imperial College, London, during the late 1970s. By comparison the range of craters presented by René Gallant in 1964 as evidence for massive meteorite bombardment seems relatively modest. Perhaps more today than when it was published, geophysicists and Solar System astronomers should read it. Most would, I feel sure, find it very enjoyable, especially for his occasional dry comment, as in the final paragraph of acknowledgements: "Lastly and not least, I must thank those scientists who- notwithstanding ...

... key to the past or as a key to the future. But in this, if anywhere, we should be aware of the need for constant revision of this very assumption." Klemes points out that "the behaviour of time series of long historic records of geophysical processes [specifically the "Hurst phenomenon" concerning the maximum flood stages of the Nile is compatible with the concept of catastrophic evolution". A modest start, but the journal is a potential source of value to members with a geological bent. Subscription is $ ... of interested researchers and papers by H.C. Dudley (a chapter from his Kronos Press book), Normal MacBeth (Whimsical Aspects of Scientific Theory), W.J. Jong (Actualism in Geology and Geography, reprinted from a Dutch geological journal) and Vit Klemes (Geophysica1 Time Series and Catastrophism, a paper presented at the McMaster symposium). The two earlier papers enquire into the "scientific process"; Jong's, while scorning "modern fantasies about Venus recently having crossed the earth's orbit", finds that "A provisional assumption ...

... strong EM signals and magnetic anomalies that have been documented before some earthquakes. Unfortunately, when a set of observations cannot be explained within the framework of existing knowledge, the tendency is not to believe the observation. Therefore, a general malaise has taken root in the geophysical community when it comes to the many reported non-seismic and non-geodesic pre-earthquake phenomena There seems to be no bona fide physical process by which electric currents of sufficient magnitude could be generated in crustal rocks." Freund makes an excellent attempt to explain all of the phenomena in ... prone to it. It is not clear how such a trigger might work. In the Journal of Scientific Exploration, Vol. 17, No. 1, pp. 37 – 71, 2003, there is an excellent report that addresses the more down-to-earth problems facing geophysicists trying to understand earthquakes. The paper is titled, Rocks That Crackle and Sparkle and Glow: Strange Pre-Earthquake Phenomena, by Dr. Friedemann T. Freund, a professor in the Department of Physics, San Jose State University, and a senior researcher at NASA ...
