... angle of the field and not its polarity, so as long as the reversal is a complete 180 degrees they will not be affected. Even the problem of how they managed during the hundreds or thousands of years of a slow reversal is gone; a team of geophysicists investigating lava flows in America declare that reversals happened so fast that if a reversal happened today we would virtually be able to see a compass needle move. The problems of Auroras New Scientist 23.11.91, p. 23; 7.3.92, pp. 25-30; 14.3.92, ... had not affected the vegetation this is interpreted as evidence that man had arrived in Australia and was deliberately starting fires. The oldest concrete evidence for early man is between 40,000 and 60,000 years ago. Jericho's earthquakes National Geographic January 1992, geographica A geophysicist studying the 10,000 year record of earthquakes in the Holy Land reports that Jericho has been repeatedly destroyed by earthquake. There is evidence of residents fleeing leaving food behind. The Jordan is also frequently briefly dammed by collapsing banks as in biblical references to it ...
53. Those Old Maps Of Antarctica [Science Frontiers Website]
... to show. C.P. Hapgood, well known for his book Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, believed that ancient mariners did indeed map Antarctica when those climes were warmer. More recently, J.G. Weihaupt came to similar conclusions by a different route, which included geophysical considerations. (See SF#36 and #38.) Now, D.C.Jolly has put the whole problem in perspective in an excellent review. Jolly has studied the data in depth, as indicated by his 51 sources. In his view, it boils down ... Those Old Maps Of Antarctica Was Antarctica nearly ice-free within the last few thousand years? Did the old navigators sail into these now-frigid waters and map this great southern continent? One way to answer such questions is by turning to old maps and, then, asking the geophysicists if most of the continent's ice cover could have disappeared fairly recently, as some ancient maps are purported to show. C.P. Hapgood, well known for his book Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings, believed that ancient mariners did indeed map Antarctica when those climes ...
54. Flow Slips, Ocean Bottom Currents and Subaqueous Dunes [Catastrophism Geology $]
... . An example of the latter is a field of foraminiferal-sand dunes in the Central Pacific, at a depth of over 2600 m, discovered by Lonsdale and Malfait (1974). These dunes could be discovered only with modern research equipment, in this case a 'deep-towed geophysical instrument package', including sidescan sonar. According to those authors, the currents forming these dunes are probably episodic spillovers of dense, cold water from a neighbouring basin. High density outflows from basins are known to' reach high velocities, up to 150 cm ... et al., Initial Reports of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, Volume 12, Washington (U.S. Govt.

55. The Surface Of Venus -- "A Newborn Babe" [Aeon Journal $]
... Magellan spacecraft should not only contradict the previous models of the Venusian surface but should also show overwhelming evidence of recent stupendous volcanism on a surface that appears to be pristine. One of the first indications of this excessive volcanism was presented in May 1990 in the Journal of Geophysical Research which analyzed the sulfur content of the Venusian clouds. There Na Y. Chan et al. state: Results of recent International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) observations of Venus made on January 20, 1987, and April 2 and 3, 1988, along ... they were created in the same way under similar conditions. That is, both Venus and Io are highly volcanic and have thin crusts floating on magma: "Lunar craters, like terrestrial impact craterstend to be circular, whereas calderas do not." (16) Geophysicists have generally considered misshapen craters as volcanic structures on the Moon and on Io. However, when they observe misshapen craters on Venus in which nearly all craters over 12 miles in diameter are observed to be filled with lava and in which a percentage have lava rivers ...

A number of investigators have come to the conclusion, however, that the cyclicity of the geomagnetic field apparently should be discounted [49. The following statement has been made as part of the US National Report to the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics 1979-1982 [50: 'For at least 40,000 years prior to 5000 BP, the dipole moment has generally been smaller than the present day value. A specific statement has been made that high dipole moments during the last 4000 years thus appears to be an ...
57. H. H. Hess and My Memoranda [Pensee]
... on guyots. Upon reading it I wrote a rather merciless criticism of his idea that the accumulation of sediment caused the submergence of the sea bottom and with it the submergence of the flat-topped guyots. In his response he showed graciousness. By mid-1956 preparations for the International Geophysical Year were gaining momentum. On December 5, 1956, I gave to Hess a memo describing, in brevity, several projects for inclusion in the IGY. (The Year, due to start July 1, 1957, would continue until the end of 1958 ... critics. Before he decided whether to follow this course (perhaps, expecting a negative attitude by faculty members, he tarried), an initiative came from Dr. Franklin Murphy, at that time chancellor of the University of California at Los Angeles. He asked UCLA's geophysicist, Professor Louis Slichter, to organize a committee for the same kind of inquiry I had proposed to Hess. Murphy's initiative, however, foundered and the story needs to be told separately. It embraced the period from January to November, 1964. GEOLOGY DEPARTMENT ...

An electric charge of the necessary magnitude to give the earth such a potential, wrote Rowland, "would undoubtedly tear the earth to pieces and distribute its fragments to the uttermost parts of the universe (4)." Such arguments have convinced geophysicists ever since Rowland's time that an electric charge on the earth cannot be held responsible for terrestrial magnetism. Most recently, it has been fashionable to rest content with the so-called dynamo theory as an explanation for the earth's magnetic field. It is supposed that the field ...

Fragments of the meteorite which created the crater have been found and unusual iron rich shale balls also occur around the crater rim, containing fragments and veins of iron-nickel metal and an iron-phosphide, Schreibersite. In July 2002 UTS Geophysics flew a geophysical survey over Wolfe Creek Crater for Geoscience Australia. Airborne Magnetic, radiometric and digital terrain data were collected.
