83. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART VII: DIMENSIONS OF QUANTAVOLUTION: 31.The Recency of the Surface [Quantavolution Website]
... exponential rate of astrobleme discoveries was noted. There is no chance of finding a solitary culprit. Cretaceous craters will be numerous, and if time is compressed, distinction among the ages of most astroblemes may be vitiated. All of this is ominous. If geology and geophysics are so ready to sell out biostratigraphical chronology, on which natural history has depended almost entirely from the beginning of its modern phase 150 years ago, then those disciplines, if not bankrupt, are poor. One cannot be blamed for addressing them with alternatives. ... King Kong may still be alive in some jungle for all the difference it would make to primate zoology. The protozoans are alive and studied without reference to the discovery of similar Precambrian species. Even the science of radiology is independent of its use to measure time; geophysicist Melvin Cook, following upon his trenchant criticism of radiochronometry, is prompt to praise other uses of radiation physics in geology. Similarly Dudley attacked vigorously the idea of stability of radioactive decay measures even though he was a professor of radiation physics in medicine and quite aware ...

... D. Spudis, a highly respected geologist of the U. S. Geological Survey in Flagstaff, Arizona.(10) Spudis was also a member of the site selection team for Viking 2 to Mars. He is currently a member of the Lunar Geology and Geophysics Review Panel which evaluates proposals to the Planetary Geology Program at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). He is a scientist. In fact, every article in The New Solar System is written by scientists. J. Kelly Beatty and Andrew Chaikin were ... are probably calderas in the sense of having formed in volcanic terrain by such endogenetic processes as explosive gas release and/ or collapse.(69) Short tells us that, as late as 1975, six years after spacecraft landed on the Moon, most astrogeologists or geophysicists felt the volcanic bubble theory explained lunar cratering. The theory is presenty a minority view, but majorities never made science valid. The war over the nature of the origin of lunar craters has, at present, a bureaucratic and political aspect. Oberg is arguing ...
85. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART TWO: GEOLOGICAL ISSUES: CHAPTER ELEVEN: ICE CORES OF GREENLAND [Quantavolution Website]
... close to the bottom. The results, though complicated to obtain, produce marvelous evidence of historical conditions. This is why, under favorable conditions, an ice core obtained by drilling through an ice sheet can be used to establish continuous and detailed time series of many geophysical and chemical parameters reaching several hundred thousand years back in time: the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere; climatic changes in terms of accumulation rate and, with certain reservations, surface temperatures; the chemical composition of the atmosphere; volcanic activity and its cooling effect ... of an "empirical study" whose deadliness to the opposition was not originally intended. Such would be the study of ice cores of Greenland and Antarctica. Their purpose is multiform; a Danish group of glaciologists writes: "Ice cores have become an important tool in geophysics and atmospheric chemistry. Langway (1967) first perceived the great and many-sided aspects of extending physical and chemical analyses of snow and ice to what Crary (1970) calls: 'the thin dimension' of glaciers, thereby adding time to the parameters considered. In ...
86. THE LATELY TORTURED EARTH: PART I: ATMOSPHERICS: 4.Magnetism and Axial Tilts [Quantavolution Website]
... electric globe enclosing the Earth which is perceptible even as one descends into the deepest rocks and which may only end in some kind of an electric current which may be running through the core of the Earth at about the geographical spinning equator, very roughly perpendicular to the geophysical poles. It is important, too, to appreciate that these two features, the magnetic electric current and the geographical spinning equator may be largely independent of one another. That is, one can conceive of the magnetic and geographical systems operating even at right angles ... the Earth's magnetic field in geological history simply did not occur. Obviously there is no evidence to be obtained one way or another by atmospheric testing of the field; any number of reversals (or none at all) might have occurred without leaving discernible evidence. The geophysicist, however, can search for evidence of the magnetic field in rocks [14. Igneous rocks have often been imprinted with magnetism when in a molten state; hence they hold myriads of tiny compasses, pointed towards the magnetic pole. If for one set of ...

... and the "East Pacific" area. The continents were in motion. The Earth was girdled by chasms and ready to move and expand. Pangea was ended. The climax of chaos had passed. Two characteristics of the world fracture system deserve much more attention than geophysicists have allowed them. Only Cook, to my knowledge, has frankly expressed what is so apparent, that the total system was the work of hours; perhaps he could utter the shocking sentences because he had won a Nobel prize for his work on explosives. ... fracture system. Africans of the Rift countries retain legends of great structural changes in their land. To their stories are to be added similar Arab and Hebrew stories. From the beginning to the end, the fracture system might have been the work of a day; geophysicist Cook speaks in terms of hours. It conceivably inspired the "Third Day", during which "God created the oceans" in Hebrew story. "And God said, 'Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together in one place, and let the ...

... from the interior of the Earth. Although the undersea mountains have a covering of sediments in many places, they are not made of sediments, they are not folded and they have not been compressed [8. The last sentence points up an impossible predicament for conventional geophysics: a supposed situation in which the continental crust folds and thrusts and compresses into abundant mountains while the oceanic crust slides up and under and around without making mountains, having once and for all and by gradual processes made its igneous ridges and seamounts. That no ... is the thrusting and folding of the ocean bottoms? There is very little of it, unless, as we said, continental drifting is called thrusting. The seabeds are flat, save for the steep oceanic ridges, the great rises, and the innumerable seamounts. Geophysicist Edward Bullard marks the contrast: The mountains of the oceans are nothing like the Alps or the Rockies, which are largely built from folded sediments. There is a world-encircling mountain range -the mid-ocean ridge -on the sea bottom, but it is built entirely of igneous ...
89. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Review $]
... , many primitive mammals and the flying and swimming reptiles. Over thirty years ago Velikovsky came to the conclusion that "the revolution which marks the finale of the Cretaceous period was caused by one of the interplanetary contacts". At the recent Annual Meeting of the American Geophysical Union, evidence supporting an extra-terrestrial solution to the mystery was presented by Walter Alvarez of the University of California. Whilst researching into sedimentation rates at a site in Gubbio, Italy, his team discovered that the sedimentary rock marking the boundary of the Cretaceous period contained ... began to part, and their subsequent meanderings "at rates of only a few centimetres a year" (p. 158) thereafter periodically decimated the planet. Apart from the fact that there must have been a "catastrophic event", in the words of two geophysicists in the forefront of drift theory [3, to initiate Pangaea's break-up, would Gould like to provide convincing explanations in terms of continental drift, without invoking catastrophes (and on one side of the paper only), of: (a) The disappearance of ...

... which strike crowded quarters of the poors and let the rich flee to their courtyards. It may be more logical to give partial exemption to the people of Goshen from all the plagues simply because of the erratic nature of the disasters. Enough truth may rest in this geophysical separation to justify a later tale of a special dispensation for being Hebrew. So far as concerns the first-born, Moses had already proclaimed to the Pharaoh: Thus says the Lord, Israel is my first-born son, and I say to you, 'Let my son ... to the rotation. Whether it actually tilted is a highly debatable question, to which we address only a few remarks in this book. We say here merely that the strain to tilt must have occurred and had consequences. The question is not beyond the capabilities of geophysics to resolve. A research team would obtain a set of measurements showing the angles of stress of disturbed monuments and geological features; it would postulate several chronological settings; it would calculate a number of possible movements of the crust resulting from combinations of decelerating and tilting ...
