The concept of Axial Tilt [aka Obliquity] is very straightforward.

Guest post by Tim Cullen covering natural philosophy from pre-historic Scotland, Plato and Kepler to a sub-atomic theory developed by an eminently well qualified nuclear physicist. The renaissance of Natural Philosophy in the Renaissance period laid the foundation stones which enabled the construction of the modern scientific edifice. The Renaissance also renewed interest in anti-Aristotelian […]

In 1922 Ellsworth Huntington recognised that the planets may well influence sunspots. A study of sunspots suggests that their true periodicity is almost if not exactly identical with that of the orbital revolution of Jupiter, 11.8 years. Other investigations show numerous remarkable coincidences between sunspots and the orbital revolution of the other planets, including especially […]

Tim Cullen: Svensmark Vindicated

Guest post fromm Tim Cullen. Be sure to visit his site MalagaBay. In 1996 Henrik Svensmark and Eigil Friis-Christensen discovered a connection between cosmic rays and global cloud cover. In 1996 a surprising discovery was announced that the intensity of cosmic rays incident on the earth’s atmosphere correlates closely with variations of global cloud cover […]

This is the first of two guest posts from Tim Cullen on the fascinating subject of photon production in planetary atmospheres: The concept of a “fluorescing atmosphere” is generally dismissed as cranky [or just plain crazy] by most pundits and commentators. Therefore, I am extremely grateful to Professor Mark A. Smith and Hiroshi Imanaka for […]

The origin of “the other big bang theory” dates back to 1766 when the astronomer Johann Daniel Titius of Wittenberg noted a strange “gap” [or “empty space”] in the pattern of planetary distances. If one began a numerical sequence at 0, then included 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, etc., doubling each time, and added four […]

In the final part of his study on planetary-atmospheric co-rotation, Tim Cullen extends his heuristic formula to the inner planets, with surprising results. Planetary Rotation – Mars, Earth and Venus Tim Cullen – MalagaBay – January 2013   The second part of this post calculated a generalised view of the relationship between the “Corotational Radius” […]

The first part of this post found a statistical relation between the planetary period of rotation [in days] and the diameter [in kilometres] for the Gas Giants of the Solar System. However, describing this statistical relationship in more detail is problematical because of our limited understanding of the Gas Giants. There are various observations, theories, […]

Tim Cullen continues his investigation of the secret life of the solar system, and makes a very interesting discovery. To find his previous articles, use this search. Planetary Rotation – Atmospheric Corotation Tim Cullen – MalagaBay – January 2013 Atmospheric Corotation is one of those “dark corners” of science where mainstream scientists “fear to tread”. […]

This is another guest post from Tim Cullen, taking a look at millennium scale climate events: Solar System – Holocene Lawler Events Tim Cullen – Malaga – Jan 2013 In recent years there have been a number of studies proposing millennium-scale climate cycles. Fred Singer and Dennis Avery believe there is an unstoppable 1,500 year […]

While I was over in Spain I spent some time in the company of Tim ‘MalagaBay’ Cullen whose generous help and hospitality made my transport and accommodation arrangements a pleasure rather than a chore. We also got to spend a good amount of time brainstorming climate ideas and discussing this post, which I found very […]

My Thanks once again to Tim Cullen, who has written this followup to his earlier post on Total Solar Irradiance (TSI). Accurate knowledge of this quantity is crucial to the climate debate, and as Tim shows, it isn’t as well constrained as we’ve been led to believe by successive IPCC reports. The Sun doesn’t have […]

It is my pleasure to publish this guest post by Tim Cullen, an independent solar system researcher. His previous post here didn’t get the attention it deserved due to the other events occurring around the same time, so take a look at that too. Tim Cullen has generously given me permission to add a link […]

This is our second guest post by Tim Cullen, and it is a superb piece of work presented in a professionally produced document, which builds on his first post. There are 32 stunning images in this piece, and I cannot do them all justice with wordpress’ limited formatting capabilities. Please download the full article and […]

The Secret Astronomer’s Other Ball Tim Cullen April 2012 There are a series of celebrations and jamborees scheduled for the 5th and 6 June 2012 to commemorate a last in your lifetime event, lasting 6 hours and 40 minutes[1], called the Transit of Venus 2012[2]. For the children born after 8th June 2004[3] this is […]

As Above So Below – Timo Niroma

A previous posting introduced a concept that has echoed down the ages: As Above, So Below. The concept of As Above, So Below can be seen embedded in the cosmology of Johannes Kepler [Mysterium Cosmographicum – 1596] because he thought the five Platonic solids dictated the structure of the universe. Kepler…

I found a book by Peter Hubers which uses Length of Day (LOD) variation as a case study in data analysis. It contains information which may be relevant to our ongoing investigation of the effects the spatio-temporal distribution of the planets may have on solar variation and terrestrial rotation and climatic variation. Hubers cites a […]

Greenland – Raised Beaches

Originally posted on MalagaBay:
The Encyclopædia Britannica Eleventh Edition [1910–1911] provides a very intriguing summary of the raised beaches that had been discovered in Greenland. These discoveries enabled the Encyclopædia Britannica to conclude that “the whole of this large island has been raised, or the sea has sunk, in post-glacial times” and that “the upheaval…
