    Mega-Quakes Can Cause Earth’s Crust to Rip Open and Snap Shut

    Like a crocodile’s jaw opening and snapping shut, Earth’s crust can rip apart and then violently close back up during an earthquake, a new study finds. The discovery refutes previous claims that this kind of phenomenon was impossible, and the new research could potentially require that current seismic maps be redrawn.

    Quote oldbrew: “Mega-Quakes Can Cause Earth’s Crust to Rip Open and Snap Shut”. A lot worse can happen, and all one has to study is the evidence around us.

    A fault line can open, swallow the sedimentary rock crust on one side leaving the clay layer below exposed at the bottom of a valley. Obvious? Yes, when an ancient track leading up to the edge on the surviving side and ends in mid air. On the other side the upper sedimentary rock is again found a kilometer on. Or even worse still.

    Is Italy’s SUPERVOLCANO about to blow? Experts warn that Campi Flegrei is at a ‘critical stage’ in the build up to a devastating eruption

    Campi Flegrei is a supervolcano located outside the western suburbs of Naples
    Its last devastating eruption was in 1538, following a century of unrest
    The volcano has been restless again since 1950, with regular earthquakes
    There is now a build up in energy in the crust similar to the 1538 eruption
    If it does erupt, experts believe it would affect 360,000 people living across the caldera and Naples’ population of nearly one million

    Professor Giuseppe De Natale, who also worked on the study, said: ‘Most damage in previous crises was caused by the seismic shaking of buildings.

    ‘Our findings show that we must be ready for a greater amount of local seismicity during another uplift and that we must adapt our preparations for another emergency, whether or not it leads to an eruption.’

    AeroVironment unveils palm-sized surveillance drone for U.S. military

    Kirk Flittie, AeroVironment’s vice president in charge of unmanned aircraft systems, said in a statement the Snipe copter drone is “designed to be worn by its operator so it can be deployed in less than a minute.”

    The aircraft, which is intended for intelligence and reconnaissance missions, can relay high-resolution images and record video both day and night. It can fly at speeds of 20 mph (35 kph), has a range of more than a kilometer (half-mile), and can fly for about 15 minutes on batteries, the statement said.

    4 Graphs That Demonstrate Why The IPCC Climate Models Will NEVER Be Accurate

    From my explanation above there is 0.00% chance that the IPCC models will ever produce results that match the “unadjusted” satellite and balloon data. The only way the IPCC models will ever work is if they continue to “adjust” the NOAA/GISS/HadCRU data to make it more linear and steep.

    IBT: Stephen Hawking and 32 top physicists pen furious letter on how the universe began

    Two groups of physicists have sparked a heated debate on the origins of the universe.
    . . .
    Hawking and his colleagues’ letter was in response to the article published in early February, which heavily criticised the inflation theory – that the universe expanded like a balloon just after the Big Bang. In the article originally titled Pop Goes the Universe, physicists Anna Ijjas, Paul J Steinhardt, Abraham Loeb went so far as to deem that the theory “cannot be evaluated using the scientific method”.

    ‘Lava lamp’ theory of magnetic reversals

    ‘Several ideas exist to explain why magnetic field reversals happen. One of these just became more plausible. My colleagues and I discovered that regions on top of the Earth’s core could behave like giant lava lamps, with blobs of rock periodically rising and falling deep inside our planet. This could affect its magnetic field and cause it to flip. The way we made this discovery was by studying signals from some of the world’s most destructive earthquakes.’

    ‘After a particularly large earthquake, the whole planet vibrates like a ringing bell’

  9. oldmanK says:

    Magnetic reversals (oldbrew’s earlier post) were an interesting subject, in the hope that they would indicate Earth crust movement in specific areas of interest -personal-. But there is a caveat.

    Other material is pointing to the probability that crust movement happens, due mainly to the Coriolis effect. Meaning that evidence of magnetic change may be the result of surface re-orientation and not magnetic field reversal.

    This may be found interesting: http://www.lextalus.com/pdf/The%20Coriolis%20Effect.pdf section 8 may be interesting in another setting.

    A Long-Sought Proof, Found and Almost Lost

    When a German retiree proved a famous long-standing mathematical conjecture, the response was underwhelming.
    […]
    As for the proof’s muted reception, Royen wasn’t particularly disappointed or surprised. “I am used to being frequently ignored by scientists from [top-tier] German universities,” he wrote in an email. “I am not so talented for ‘networking’ and many contacts. I do not need these things for the quality of my life.”

    Upon seeing the proof, “I really kicked myself,” Richards said. Over the decades, he and other experts had been attacking the GCI with increasingly sophisticated mathematical methods, certain that bold new ideas in convex geometry, probability theory or analysis would be needed to prove it. Some mathematicians, after years of toiling in vain, had come to suspect the inequality was actually false. In the end, though, Royen’s proof was short and simple, filling just a few pages and using only classic techniques. Richards was shocked that he and everyone else had missed it.
    […]
    “I had developed a conceptual way of thinking about this that perhaps I was overly wedded to,” Pitt said. “And what Royen did was kind of diametrically opposed to what I had in mind.”

    Time flies: Insect fossils in amber shed light on India’s geological history
    May 17, 2017

    A new species of fungus gnat in Indian amber closely resembles its fossil relatives from Europe, disproving the concept of a strongly isolated Indian subcontinent.
    . . .
    The most interesting finding from the discovery of these new gnat species is related to India´s plate tectonic history: Palaeognoriste orientale in Cambay amber belongs to a group that has previously been reported from slightly younger Baltic amber only.
    . . .
    Though the exact mechanisms of faunal exchange remain unclear so far, dispersal might have been facilitated by an island chain system between India and Europe, as has already been suggested for biting midges.

    I was interested mainly in the piece on Plato. It is worth noting that of all that is said on Plato’s story in the Timaeus, no one ever takes up debate on the clear reason – a root cause – that Plato gives for the periodic destructions. Plato says “Now this has the form of a myth, but really signifies a declination of the bodies moving in the heavens around the earth—“. Note that the Earth’s obliquity has been measured and considered fixed millennia before Stockwell, and later Newcomb’s calculations. Perhaps Hancock should study GF Dodwell carefully.

    Graham Hancock: Why Science Should Cherish Its Rebels – The Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis Is Anything But Dead

    In this article, Graham Hancock shows how scientists consistently suppress and marginalise new knowledge that conflicts with established positions and argues that a paradigm shift is underway – a shift that will require us to reconsider everything we’ve been taught about the peopling of the Americas and about the very origins of civilization.

    http://www.sott.net/article/351712-Graham-Hancock-Why-Science-Should-Cherish-Its-Rebels-The-Younger-Dryas-Impact-Hypothesis-Is-Anything-But-Dead

    Hancock: ‘all branches of science again and again repeat the same fundamental mistakes – elevating current hypotheses to the status almost of divinely-ordained truths, coming to regard those hypotheses as unchallengeable reference frames through which reality must be viewed, and marginalising, ostracising, humiliating and seeking to destroy the professional reputations of all those who propose alternative hypotheses. None of this is new.’

    frequency algebra review
    terrestrial year frequencies
    T = tropical
    L = anomalistic
    lunar month frequencies
    D = draconic (nodal)
    A = anomalistic
    Y = synodic

    Recap

    Awareness of simple 100:1 structure arose from methodical exploration of annual & semi-annual aliasing of the lunar “6 year” cycle, which (this is important to note) is independent of Y.

    D-A is the frequency of the lunar “6 year” (actually a bit less than 6 years) cycle.
    2L is the semi-annual anomalistic year.
    Harmonic of D-A nearest 2L is 12th, so aliasing is 12(D-A)-2L.
    Harmonic of D-A nearest L is 6th, so aliasing is 6(D-A)-L.
    Harmonic of D-A nearest T is 6th, so aliasing is 6(D-A)-T.

    Astronomers strive for extreme measurement precision, but even so the aliasing is extremely sensitive to measurement error.

    Important component of attractor diagnosis to understand:
    The long aliasing loop ( 6(D-A)-6(T-L)-L ) – ( 6(D-A)-6(T-L)-T ) = T-L presents an opportunity to cancel out aliasing sensitivity related to any high-frequency D & A measurement error.

    6(D-A)-L & 6(D-A)-T are both slightly (but not much) off upscale target, but they balance in T-L aggregate. This helps sort out the order (and tightness) of the antiresonant attractor coupling hierarchy. Here we see a geometric landscape with resonance ridges and antiresonance valleys (of relative opportunity to avoid destructive resonance) consistent with both bilateral and pentagonal symmetry and square radial scaling.

    Note that (2^2)(5^2)(T-L) = ((2)(5))^2)(T-L) nails the Hale Core Attractor.

    Typo Alert:
    There’s at least 1 typo above:
    “1 / ( 100(T-L)+(U+N)+(J+S) ) = 13.68229647 side = 13.68282744 trop”
    should read
    1 / ( 100(T-L)+(U+N)+(J-S) ) = 13.68229647 side = 13.68282744 trop
    The change:
    It should be (J-S), not (J+S) in that line.

    Mainstream conceptualization of temporal volatility statistical structure in spatiotemporal settings is fundamentally wrong. Insight into a higher generality is emerging from this attractor ID exercise. Conjecture: It will be possible to geometrically prove limits of Gibbs Sampling using the Metropolis-Hastings algorithm.

    From oldbrew: “oldbrew says: May 23, 2017 at 2:01 pm “—Graham Hancock: Why Science Should Cherish Its Rebels”

    I am presently part way through the Joe Rogan podcast on the subject (here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFlAFo78xoQ ) where at 19:00 G Hancock refers to the Mnajdra and GGantija megalithic temples. However those very two places are very different when considered from another perspective – see here: https://melitamegalithic.wordpress.com/ (it is something I started experimenting with – but sites in wordpress seem to conflict). There are other issues also.

    Incidentally PV here: Paul Vaughan says: May 23, 2017 at 10:35 pm has a link to a Tim Cullen post from 2013. The figure at the very beginning is very interesting. See how the dates given (between 6200bc and 2000bce) find parallels to the dates at my site here: https://melitamegalithic.wordpress.com/2017/02/24/blog-post-title-2/ On a larger scale it appears to me as natural cyclic ratcheting between two trip points (see here: https://grist.files.wordpress.com/2006/10/volstok.gif ), at least in the last 400k yrs.

  37. Paul Vaughan says:

    There was a telltale systematic pattern in the original errors. They were all of same sign and magnitude. That suggested measurement bias. I started going back to sources, checking and double-checking. Sure enough I found a source column labeled “sidereal” that was actually Julian. Correcting for that cut the bias in half. Now I’m going back to check ephemeris days versus solar days and whatever else. There will be lots of review. The impact is only when merging frames of reference. I saw systematic drift between 2 frames. 100:1 identified it. That’s how tight 100:1 is. You can use it as a diagnostic tool to ID bias. Years ago I asked an astronomer about conventions and the astronomer told me unless otherwise stated “year” means sidereal year. Well, using diagnostics based on 100:1 I learned the important lesson that the astronomer was wrong. It’s becoming clear that it isn’t just climate scientists who need outside help.

    Here’s a simpler example framed conventionally:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equation_of_time
    =
    The word equation is used in the medieval sense of reconcile a difference. The two times that differ are the apparent solar time, which directly tracks the motion of the sun, and mean solar time, which tracks a theoretical “mean” sun with noons 24 hours apart.
    =

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_time#Mean_solar_time
    =
    Mean time follows the mean sun. Jean Meeus describes the mean sun as follows:

    “Consider a first fictitious Sun travelling along the ecliptic with a constant speed and coinciding with the true sun at the perigee and apogee (when the Earth is in perihelion and aphelion, respectively). Then consider a second fictitious Sun travelling along the celestial equator at a constant speed and coinciding with the first fictitious Sun at the equinoxes. This second fictitious sun is the mean Sun […]”
    =

    Same thing I’m doing with this
    Φ(J+S) = φJEV = (J+S)-JEV = ((J+S)+ΦJEV)/2 = 100(T-L)+(U+N)+(J-S)
    Meeus called it “mean”. I call it attractor because in a it’s more than just a mean. It’s the balance of a multiaxial differential and there’s no need for reliance on fictitious conceptual stepping stones (teaching devices) once this is well understood.

    Jupiter’s complex transient auroras
    May 25, 2017

    Combined observations from three spacecraft show that Jupiter’s brightest auroral features recorded to date are powered by both the volcanic moon Io and interaction with the solar wind.
    . . .
    The data showed that the energy from Io’s gas emission was somehow transferred toward Jupiter at a speed approaching 400 to 800 kilometers per second in the equatorial region of the space around Jupiter.

    http://phys.org/news/2017-05-jupiter-complex-transient-auroras.html

    Much talk of ‘energy’ and ‘power’ but no mention of electricity. Strange considering the subject is auroras.
