41. The Radiocarbon Dating Method [Journals] [Pensee]
... Professor Libby received the Nobel Prize in 1960 for his work in developing the radiocarbon dating method. A recipient of numerous other honors, Libby is currently director, Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, University of California, Los Angeles. This research was sponsored by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. GA-628, Contribution No. 3101 from ... is equivalent to a world-wide calibration. GEOPHYSICS AND ASTROPHYSICS The University of California (Los Angeles) carbon-dating laboratory The corrections to the radiocarbon dates are of fundamental interest to the geophysicists and astrophysicists. The source of the Earth's magnetic field remains unknown although evidence accumulates suggesting that it is related to the metallic nature of the Earth's interior and the Earth's ...
42. The Advancement of Science [Books] [de Grazia books]
... logic of existing science and rereading ancient documents: Dear Dr. de Grazia, (. .. ) I meant to mention in my previous letter that at the American Geophysical Union Convention in Washington a paper detailed the possibility existing in Jupiter of nuclear detonation. This is not new, the idea that Jupiter is in fact a mini-sun, ... So would the "activist-productive" e-category geologist Derek Ager, who, however, would not have to execute a vigorous flop, just a tilt. Melvin Cook, a geophysicist of the same ranking, would be found in f, and would probably move restrainedly into g. Robert Jastrow might occur as top elite in the d category of ...
... to the surface that air should freeze. However, in Broca's Brain, p. 119, Sagan stated that, "Velikovsky has failed to understand two classic and basic geophysical results. Thermal conduction is a much slower process than radiation or convection, and, in the case of the Earth, primordial heat makes a detectable contribution to the ... chose the worst case scenario to attack Velikovsky and ignored totally the concept to which Einstein was eager to lend his consideration. S.K . Runcorn, a well respected geophysicist, in the Sept. 1955 issue of Scientific American stated categorically that, based on geomagnetic evidence respecting the Tertiary period, "the Earth's axis of rotation had changed ...
44. Radiohalos And Earth History [Journals] [Kronos]
... 32. 17. R. Gentry, Medical Opinion & Review (October 1967), 65-79. 18. R. Gentry, abstract in EOS, Transactions, American Geophysical Union 51 (April 1970), 338. 19. R. Gentry, Science 169 (14 August 1970), 670-673. Quite recently Gentry's name has been ... of nature for many years. It was not until 1907 that the mystery of their origin was cleared up. In that year, John Joly, an Irish physicist and geophysicist, and O. Mügge, a German scientist, almost simultaneously came up with the explanation: The discolorations are the result of radioactivity in tiny inclusions (impurities) ...
45. Sagan's fifth problem: Chemistry & biology of the terrestrial planets (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... Petroleum Geologists Bulletin concludes that, "the organic theory of the origin of petroleum does not correspond to the modern state of knowledge in the fields of geology, geochemistry, geophysics, thermodynamics, astrophysics and other sciences; in fact, it is an outdated concept. Instead, the general inorganic theory of petroleum meets the requirement of the new ... conditions for it must have occurred in the past and would have required a warmer climate and a denser atmosphere."53 G. O. Abell informs us that "Geophysicists have pointed out that liquid water can simply not survive in the low pressure atmosphere Mars has today. Various experts estimate that the atmospheric pressure would have to be from ...
46. Recent Origin and Decay of the Earth's Magnetic Field [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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." (3 ) "There are also indications that the dipole moment has decreased at a relatively uniform rate from about 8.55 x 1025 gauss cm2 ... : "Universal Magnetic Field", American Scientist 59 (1971), pp. 582-3. A Commentary on Barnes' Magnetic Decay JOHN MILSOM Dr Milsom is a consultant geophysicist and a part-time lecturer at Goldsmith College, London. As Professor Barnes' paper is an attack on conventional palaeomagnetism, it is worthwhile summarising the orthodox position, which ...
47. Reversals of the Earth? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... :4 , reproduced from Journal of Physics A, shows further support of Velikovsky by the scientific establishment. His paper will, I feel sure, represent a landmark in geophysics for stating a case for the physical reversal of the poles as viewed by an observer from space, corresponding with the reversals of the earth's magnetic field as viewed by ... , whatever the position of the earth itself. It seems that the specialist mind is flummoxed more easily than we may have realised by concepts foreign to its conditioning. A geophysicist at Newcastle University (in one of Britain's foremost schools of physics) was so far from able to treat Warlow's suggestions seriously that in correspondence with the Editors he was ...
48. Oberg's Unscientific Method [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , 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 ... 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 ...
49. The Recency of the Surface [Books] [de Grazia books]
... 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 ... 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 ...
50. Intensity, Scope and Suddenness [Books] [de Grazia books]
... catastrophic morphology as effects of flood and tide. Proving precisely a deluge, as distinct from, even although associated with, floods and tides, is a difficult problem for geophysics. The evidence is of a kind elaborated earlier in this book - the search for the sources of oceanic water, chemistry of seawater, and so on. Still ... replies "Of course." If the astronomer is a true empiricist and even a sceptic, he says "We don't know," and asks the paleontologists, the geophysicists, the ancient historian, and the mythologist for help. M.G . Reade, a confectionary engineer, navigator, and scholar, addressed himself to the evidence ...
