251. Thoth Vol VI, No 2: March 15, 2002 [Journals] [Thoth]
... . Several milliseconds after the positive lightning strike, sensors recorded a sudden upward-flowing current pulse. Just 300 microseconds later, the sprite lit up in the sky. To add to the mystery, the electric field disappears far more rapidly than ground observations suggest, in just a few milliseconds. Bering's results-some of which he presented at the recent American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco-turns sprite theory on its head. "The charge that produces sprites is not below in the cloud, it's in the mesosphere itself," suggests Bering. So now there are new puzzles where could this charge be coming from, and if there's no QE field, what causes the delay between lightning and sprite ...

... suddenly increased by 0.85 millisecond. Thereafter the day began to decrease by 3.7 microseconds every 24 hours [5 ]. He ascribed the fluctuation in the length of the day to an electromagnetic cause connected with the flare. His announcement created a sensation among the delegates to the General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics' that year in Helsinki [5 ]. V. Bargmann of Princeton University and L. Motz of Columbia University claimed for me the priority of predicting radio-noises from Jupiter, the existence of a magnetosphere around the earth, and the high ground temperature of Venus [6 ]. They stressed also that these discoveries later came as great ...

... own eyes and reported the effects of cataclysms in the formations of the layers of the earth. He found that the changes brought about had been sudden, without gradation. He looked for a possible cause and referred to the successive catastrophic changes as revolutions of the earth. He conjectured that the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii). Since Cuvier's days geophysical discoveries of major importance have been made; they include: Antarctic Continent - 1820 Ice Ages - ca.1845 Wobble of the Globe - ca.1885 South Pole Ice Cap - Recent Continuous Growth of Ice Cap - New Continuous Creation of Earth Materials by Photosynthesis - New Much of the mystery previously connected with earth strata, and the ...

255. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... potassium-argon method and uniformitarian assumptions. A periodicity in extinctions? The fossil record as a whole is too poor for it to be known with any certainty when individual species became extinct, but the picture becomes a little clearer, in statistical terms, if taxonomic families (groups of species) are investigated instead. Jack Sepkoski of the Department of Geophysical Sciences, University of Chicago, has compiled a record of the appearance and extinction of some 3300 families of marine animals, of which about 2400 are extinct, assigning each event to within the confines of one of the internationally agreed stratigraphical stages [47-49]. Using this compilation, Sepkoski and his colleague, David Raup, saw that ...

... the source of the pattern's consistent and ubiquitous appeal and the reason why it functions at a level that transcends conscious thought. The rhythm and the mystery are the catastrophic sequence. The parallels, however, are not consistent throughout, for there is one very obvious difference. The play's conclusion is rather more aesthetically and morally satisfying than the actual geophysical events it symbolizes, but that is after all one of the reasons for the drama's appeal. When history is transmuted into art, the emphasis is laid upon order, not disorder. Chaos must be superseded by rebirth. It may therefore be possible that the fertility-play pattern in Hamlet and Oedipus the King is a mask by means of ...

257. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ?sources: COMMERCIAL APPEAL, MEMPHIS 10.11.86; NATURE 323, pp.296-7 Richard Muller and Donald Morris, physicists at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory of the University of California have come up with an explanation of the 180 degree reversal of Earth's magnetic field that took place some 700,000 years ago. They write in GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH LETTERS that a comet, asteroid or giant meteorite would have slammed into the Earth, triggering off a complex series of events which ultimately upset the motion of metals deep in Earth's core. This would in turn have upset the planetary dynamo, and hence the magnetic reversal. Now where have we seen a similar type of theory before ...

... about 24 degrees north of the Equator as at present, 26000 BC and 52000 BC. The coldest period in Australia would have been about 25000 BC when the Pleiades would have been roughly where they are now. The only suggestion Keay can then make is that the answer might lie in polar wandering, which he describes as "a purely geophysical phenomenon". An "innocuous little story" perhaps, but one too hot to handle! Philistine Pick source: Biblical Archaeology Review VIII, 6, Nov/Dec 1982, p. 50 Jane Haight has noticed a mention of an iron pick of Philistine manufacture in an article by James D. Muhly. The pick was found ...

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 dry land appear. '" [3 ] At the end of the ...

... is so weak is that electric currents in the surrounding plasma outbalance the magnetic field from the Sun almost completely. It is interesting to note that the same explanation has been offered for the fact that no magnetosphere has been observed around Venus.(32) According to a model by M. A. White, published in the Handbook of Geophysics and Space Environments, the Sun's magnetic dipole moment is 8.8 x 1043 cgs units.(33) From this we can calculate the flux density at the Earth's orbit, had there been no plasma currents. The result is 260,000 gauss! This is a purely hypothetical figure. Even in a low-conductivity medium, electric ...
