61. Magnetic Models of the Polar Configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... inner core might have initiated mantle convection which, in turn, later would result in fractionization of actinides in the postulated liquid layer atop the solid core. (8 ) Geophysical record of the Golden Age magnetic field of Earth. The magnetic field at and near Earth's surface during the Golden Age probably was stronger than the average before and since ... last ten millennia should be made. A spike in extinctions of species should be associated with any proliferation found. (7 ) Actinide shell and growth of solid core. Geophysicists generally accept the theory that solid inner cores of planets formed by solidification of liquid cores formed during planetary accretions. The present theory requires that the actinide shell formed atop ...
62. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 ... " (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 ...
63. The Origin Of Craters On The Moon And Large Lunar Boulders [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Guest, J. B. Murray, D. Dzurisin, M. Malin, "Some comparisons of impact craters on Mercury and on the Moon," Journal of Geophysical Research, Vol. 80 (1975), pp. 2444-2460: in Kathleen Mark's, Meteorite Craters,(Tucson, Ariz., 1987), p. ... Home | Issue Contents The Origin Of Craters On The Moon And Large Lunar Boulders Charles Ginenthal The origin of craters on the Moon is presently accepted, by the majority of geophysicists and astronomers, to be the products of impacting bodies. D. E. Gault, et al., in 1975 stated that: "It is now firmly ...
64. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... meteorites (shergottites, nakhtites and chassignites) continues; we have reported this before in Workshop 4:2 , pp. 21-2. At a recent session of the American Geophysical Union Conference Charles Wood of NASA, Houston clashed with Ann Singer of the State University New York. Wood is in favour of a Martian origin for these meteorites, ... event still in vogue, there is news of yet another meteorite theory. Klaus Schultz of the McDonnell Centre for Space Sciences at Washington University St Louis, John Klasner a geophysicist at Western Illinois University, and William Cannon a geologist with the US Geological Surrey have been studying a "gravity map" of North America. This they have interpreted ...
65. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... by the geosphere, and evidence that the world was shaken, rivers were changed in their courses and mountains were moved. Proposition No. 3 was posed: "Every geophysical feature or process in the world capable of exhibiting the effects of discontinuous stress will show that such stress occurred c. 3450 BP." In the biosphere it was ... meeting. The programme was enhanced by location shots of the Lake District as backdrops for a discussion of catastrophes, and balanced by the inclusion of DR ROGER BANKS, a geophysicist from Lancaster University, in the discussion at the close. Following this, Mr Warlow further elucidated his theory with the help of numerous working models (including tippe-tops and ...
66. Collapsing Tests of Time [Books] [de Grazia books]
... it up the continental shelves For the ocean bottoms are scarcely sedimented [4 ]. And they are of a different rock than the continents. "In the whole of geophysics there is no other law of such clarity and certainty as...that there exist two preferred levels in the Earth's crust."[5 ] Or perhaps ... ages," which are dealt with in the third volume of this work. Two terms are used to discuss magnetized rock: natural remnant magnetism and thermal remnant magnetism. Geophysicist T. Nagata of Tokyo has shown that the two are the same. Remnant magnetism, furthermore, will occur and increase with any temperature increase above 200 C. ...
67. Poleshift [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... from whatever sources from which it originally had? The cause is not to be sought in the effects created by human behavior. It is to be sought in the vast geophysical changes caused by a poleshift over the entire globe. Paul Dunbavin elaborates on the climatological effects of a more perpendicular inclination of the polar axis and how this would affect ... to John Gribben, "past climates differ from today's climate more in terms of spacial patterns of temperature and atmospheric circulation than in terms of global mean temperature.13 When geophysicist Wallace Broecker was asked about an overall global warming of 2.5 degrees Celsius, he said that "there may never have been a time that warm, at ...
68. Geomagnetic Effects of an Earthwide Event in 2300BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 defence, 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. This paper addresses clear evidence that the event at 2300 BC included geomagnetic transients and ongoing geomagnetic changes ...
69. The Geological History of the Earth [Books]
... geology: it comprises geochemistry, petrology, crystallography, and mineralogy. The study of the changes in the distribution and arrangement of the Earth's materials is dynamical geology. This last may be divided into the study of: (a ) The physical principles and forces involved in, or affecting, the Earth's crust. This is the science of geophysics. (b ) The relations between the forces and changes in the formation and distribution of structures. This study is called geodynamics.1These changes are termed geotectonic changes (from the Greek words ge and tektonikos = skilled in building). (c ) Tectonic changes in time, or historical geology. 2. We are not here ...
70. Long Term Violation of Uniformitarianism Demonstrated by Fossil Discoveries in Polar Regions [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Chile. If we grant the tenents of uniformitarianism, why would 75 degrees south latitude support at one time a productive temperate forest biota and at another time (like now) 10,000 feet of old continental glaciers? Just a refresher for you temporary Haliburtonians listening to this epistle: uniformitarian astronomy and geology stipulate no meaningful changes in basic geophysical parameters during the last 400 million years. Among these parameters are the length of the day (which has been slowly increasing over geological time), the tilt of the Earth's axis, the length of the year, the distance of the Earth from the Sun, the solar constant, the gaseous composition of the atmosphere, and the ...
