111. Small Comets Are Real [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... that critics have been looking at the wrong data, UI space physicist Louis A. Frank has published a new paper supporting his "small comet" theory that about 20 snow comets weighing 20 to 40 tons each disintegrate in the Earth's atmosphere every minute. The paper, which appears in the Jan. 1, 1999 issue of the American Geophysical Union's (AGU) Journal of Geophysical Research- Space Physics, uses an automated mathematical formula to filter out electronic instrument noise from data gathered by NASA's Polar satellite. The result, says Frank and his UI colleague John B. Sigwarth, is a "hands-off" analysis showing that "instrumental effects were not major contributors" to the ...

113. Science Frontiers [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 ...

... Engineering and an MSc in Systems Engineering and Operations Research. He is a retired Systems Engineering Manager, spending 36 years at RCA, generally in concept development engineering on advanced major military systems, mainly radar, ballistic missile defense, command/control, navigation and undersea warfare. He has written two unpublished books: the first on cultural and geophysical events occurring at 2300 BC (excerpts of this book have been published by the SIS) and the second book dedicated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. Introduction A number of years ago, I wrote three articles on cultural discontinuities, climatic changes and ...

115. The Unworkable Polar Saturn [Journals] [Aeon]
... has no way of being polar. If myth were testimony to such a situation, it would seem to reflect the supposedly Saturnian god being to every nightly hour what the Sun is to every hour in the day. This is precisely what reconstructed myth cannot be made to say. Planetarily reconstructed myth is totally incompatible with what is mechanically, geophysically, geologically, palaeoclimatically, and palaeozoogeographically feasible. That is why this model must be explored further. While the model in total isolation does not seem to be subject to celestial mechanical impossibilities, it may be argued that the gravitational perturbations due to the presence of any smaller inner planets or any larger outside planets would be sufficient over a ...

116. Quantavolutions [Books] [de Grazia books]
... have carried since 1945 an ever increasing number of quantavolution-oriented articles, minute proportion to the total, to be sure. But this number has been increasing exponentially in the past several years and by the year 1993, I would expect that fully a quarter of all publications in natural history will treat of quantavolutions. Going farther, in geology and geophysics a number of scientists are deliberately hypothesizing catastrophes at the boundaries of several geological ages and adducing old and new evidence, especially by chemical examination of sediments, to prove that they occurred. The space programs of U.S .A . and U.S .S .R . have naively reported ancient catastrophes and on-going explosiveness wherever ...

... turn to that piece. In his opening paragraph, he acknowledges "occasional" doubts raised concerning the Venus-greenhouse model and notes that other possibilities have been suggested, including "thermal energy from a hot interior . . . (e .g ., Velikovsky, 1950; . . .) ." Next comes his argument, based on geophysical surmises concerning the Earth, for a 10-kilometer-thick crust on Venus. The final paragraph on this NASA-supported-research paper neatly excludes Velikovsky and other recalcitrants from the human race: "In summary, this exercise yields an approximate but quantitative demonstration of what everyone suspected anyway- that the maximum contribution to the surface energy budget from internal heat is down by ...

More recently, Dansgaard, Clausen, Gundestrup, Johnsen, and Rygner have reiterated this revision in "Dating and Climatic Interpretation of Two Deep Greenland Ice Cores", in Greenland Ice Core: Geophysics, Geochemistry, and the Environment, edited by Langway, Oeschger, and Dansgaard (1985), pages 71-76. Thus a great deal of mileage has been gotten from those two ocean cores. It is clear that Hays, Imbrie, and Shackleton were unable to find even one deep ocean core that was adequate for their purposes, ...

GEOPHYSICS ANIMAL BEHAVIOR PRIOR TO THE HAICHENG EARTHQUAKE The catastrophic Chinese Haicheng earthquake of 1975 was preceded by many reports of unusual animal behavior.

In February, reports of this type increased markedly, including observations of general restlessness and ...

... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home | Issue Contents The Ring About The Earth at 2300 BC Moe Mandelkehr Summary As postulated in earlier papers, dust in the Earth's North Polar region at 2300 BC initiated widespread geophysical changes. The dust was a result of the Earth encountering a massive meteoroid stream, the Taurids. The event was sufficiently traumatic that religions were formed in essentially all cultures on the Earth. Thunderbolts were a prominent theme of the religions, but a new theme appeared - a ring surrounding the Earth. A possible mechanism for the ring formation was capture of small particles in the Earth's upper atmosphere coupled with later particle fragmentation ...
