What Are Volcanoes and Why do They Exist?

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski
Comments: 3 Pages.

Geologists do not know what volcanoes are and why they exist on Earth. Now we can finally answer the basic questions with stellar metamorphosis. Volcanoes are composed of liquid rock escaping the surface, but why liquid rock? Why don't all the other rocky objects all have active volcanoes? Why are some worlds almost absent huge numbers of volcanoes? This paper addresses this.

On Newtonian Dynamics with a Variable Earth Mass: Geodetic Evidence and Its Implications on Pioneer Spacecraft Anomaly and Lageos Satellite

Authors: Victor Christianto, Florentin Smarandache
Comments: 9 Pages. This paper has not been submitted to a journal. Comments are welcome

The Earth expansion problem has attracted great interest, and recent study gives geodetic evidence that the Earth has been expanding, at least over the recent several decades. In the meantime, Jayant Narlikar & Halton Arp have argued on possible variable mass hypothesis cosmology (VMH). Therefore, in the present article discusses some interesting effects related to varying G, but here we argue that instead of varying G we can think of varying mass (M). Among other things we discuss receding planets from the Sun, calculation of Pioneer spacecraft anomaly as proposed by B.G. Sidharth, and also possible slight change in LAGEOS Satellite. Further observation to verify or refute this conjecture is recommended, especially based on geological evidence of expanding earth.

On the Restraint Mechanism Between the Earth and Moon

Authors: DING Jian
Comments: 8 Pages.

The moon always use the same side to face toward the earth, but there is a dead angle in the mainstream theory of explaining this phenomenon. That is, it cannot explain why the moon doesn't rotate around the axis which is a straight line to connect the mass centers of the earth and moon. Because the numerous meteorite impact craters on the lunar surface indicate that the moon is completely possible to obtain external momentums and rotate around this axis. This paper proposes a plain explanation, that is, the universal gravitation between the earth and moon as well as the earth's magnetic field have formed a trinity restraint mechanism on the moon. According to this explanation, the moon's rotation can be locked, and the mechanism of lunar libration has been revealed out, which can also confirm mutually with the natural phenomenon that the moon has sought a balance in the swing. In addition, with the help of all kinds of detection data from the Apollo moon landings and other circumlunar spacecraft, as well as the studies and analysis of lunar soil samples, the conclusion is that as far as a whole for the moon, it belongs to paramagnetic substances, and its relative permeability is between 1.008 and 1.03. Although the magnetic flux density of the earth on the lunar orbit has been dropped below 0.0008125 nT or lower due to the impact of the solar wind, but it can be used as a reason to lock the moon without rotating around the axis which is a straight line to connect the mass centers of the earth and moon. If another main reason to cause the existence of this fact cannot be found, even if the magnetic flux density of the geomagnetism in lunar orbit is very small, it also should not be artificially ignored. In this regard, we can artificially change the intensity of the earth's magnetic field, and carefully observe the lunar libration and in the distance between the earth and the moon, to verify the arguments in this paper.

The Physics Behind Yellow Stone Volcano Eruption

Authors: B. Ravi Sankar
Comments: 5 Pages. 26-07 - 2026 is the judgement day. The Yellowstone volcano will erupt and the world will end. It is an apocalypse.

The physics behind any super volcano eruption is explained in this paper. It is to be noted that the physics behind the eruption is only explained here not the exact time of eruption. There exists a method called time series prediction in computer science algorithms and using modern day computers, one can predict the exact time of eruption provided the site earthquake/temperature/eruption history and which is beyond the scope of this paper. The spin velocity of earth at the equator is nowhere derived in the literature, but it is a measured quantity due to the spacecraft industry. In this paper, the spin velocity of earth at the equator is derived for the first time. The earth spin axis is tilted by 23.50 due to which we are having seasons. The tilted axis is not fixed or stationary. It precesses and makes a cone as viewed from north or south pole with a period of 26500 years. This precession is due to multi-body gravitational interaction in solar system which can be solved only numerically using modern day computers. Nutation is not considered in this paper. The precession of earth is opposite to the spin of of earth, due to which the earth de￾celerates. The deceleration is not a continuous function of time. It decelerates once in 26500 years. This deceleration causes energy to be accumulated beneath earth crust. An exact figure of how much energy the yellow stone volcano will erupt is given in joules. This ac￾cumulated energy erupts once in 26500 years and we call it as super volcano eruption. In the context of this paper it is yellow stone volcano located in USA. But geologists are claiming that a super volcano erupts only once in around 8 lakh years without proper scientific reasoning. Already due to global warming the yellow stone volcano had become active. The eruption can be prevented if we start producing food items like wheat,rice,apple etc. in factories. If we do that, farmlands can be planted with trees and hence a 20 centigrade reduction in temperature will prevent any volcano eruption. In order to produce crop items in factory, we need surplus of electric energy. This is possible if and only CERN achieves nuclear fusion reactions on a grand scale and also global scientist should come forward to work on pico-electronics to produce crops in factories. Otherwise it is going to be an apocalypse or doomsday/judgment day.

The 3-rd Prognosis of Large Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions According Daily Indexes of Solar Activity

Authors: A.M.Eigenson, I.B.Bazylevych, M.S.Shevchenko
Comments: 1 Page.

Recently we have done two prognosis of earthquakes (EQ) and volcanic eruptions (VE) on daily indexes of solar activity [1,2]. Both these forecasting’s are just confirmed, and here we represent the next one. All these predictions have the basis in the investigation of the first as the authors [3,4]. These was shown that when solar activity curve begins go down, then in the vicinity of its minimum the EQ and VE occur with large probability. So, knowing the behavior of solar curve, one could make the corresponding prognosis. Our previous prognosis deals in the period of Spring 2019, and now we present the prediction for Summer, 2019. In Fig.1 we see that the evident minimum of W Number was on July, 27. So we prognose the new dangerous area would be between this date and July,11 (may be, even later). (Remark: earthquakes 6+ are noted as circle’s, earthquakes 7+ as ellipses)

How does Geomagnetic Field form

Authors: Jianfei Chen
Comments: 5 Pages.

Geomagnetic field is important to every life, forming of which has not been explained well. This paper linked lodestone on earth and distance from earth to sun to explain forming of the geomagnetic field. Finally found that key to forming the geomagnetic field is distance from earth to sun. Affected by this distance, the matter earth gets from sun is special magnetic energy particles, which promotes to form lodestone, magnetic energy from which is stored in lodestone. Much lodestone on earth makes up a huge magnet, which release unified magnetic energy to make up the geomagnetic field. Email: eastear@outlook.com / eastear@163.com

Invisibility Cloaks for Stress Waves

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 23 Pages.

Despite casting deep doubt on dozens of theoretical papers on "elastodynamic" cloaking, the new study's authors from the Georgia Institute of Technology don't think civil engineers should completely give up on it, just on the idea of an ideal cloak. [19] University of Southern Denmark researchers have conducted simulations of dark matter particles hitting the Earth. [18] A global team of scientists, including two University of Mississippi physicists, has found that the same instruments used in the historic discovery of gravitational waves caused by colliding black holes could help unlock the secrets of dark matter, a mysterious and as-yet-unobserved component of the universe. [17] The lack of so-called “dark photons” in electron-positron collision data rules out scenarios in which these hypothetical particles explain the muon’s magnetic moment. [16]

A Solution of the Laplacian Using Geodetic Coordinates

Authors: Abdelmajid Ben Hadj Salem
Comments: 7 Pages.

Using the geodetic coordinates $(\varphi,\lambda,h)$, we give the expression of the laplacian $\Delta V=\ds \frac{\partial^2 V}{\partial x ^2}+\frac{\partial^2 V}{\partial y ^2}+\frac{\partial^2 V}{\partial z ^2}$ in these coordinates. A solution of $\Delta V=0$ of type $V=f(\lambda).g(\varphi,h)$ is given. The partial differential equation satisfied by $g(\varphi,h)$ is transformed in an ordinary differential equation of a new variable $u=u(\varphi,h)$.

Comments: 1 Page.

Recently we have made the prognosis of such terrestrial events for the period between April 22 and May 2, 2019. This forecasting is confirmed. Now we do the same prognosis for the next 2 weeks, from May 19 until June 2, 2019. During this period new great catastrophes are expected to occur on our Earth. In our days, we see from Fig. 1 that the dangerous area lies between May 19 and June 2, 2019. (Addition: earthquakes 6+ are noted as circle’s, earthquakes 7+ as ellipsis and volcanic eruptions as crosses). So, the people of seismic zones: BE CAREFUL!

Systèmes de Référence Systèmes Projectifs

Authors: Henri Marcel Dufour, Abdemajid Ben Hadj Salem
Comments: 27 Pages. In French. It is an-update version of a paper dated 1979 with comments of the second author.

Many geodetic works currently exist on the surface of the globe, which have developed through regional networks, usually each having a fundamental point, where the astronomical data (\phi= latitude,\lambda= longitude,Az= azimuth) of a reference are confused with the counterparts geodetic data. The comparison of 2 networks, and, step by step, of all the connectable networks, can be done by the analysis of the coordinates of their common points. To this end, we can use 3 types of coordinates: - Geographical coordinates = simple method, but not very convenient for different ellipsoids. - Three-dimensional cartesian coordinates, the most rigorous method in the case where the so-called geoid correction has been made. - Coordinates in conformal projection. An analysis of the main formulas that can be used is studied by the author in this article.

Short-Term Prognosis of Strong Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions According to Daily Indexis of Solar Activity

Authors: A.M.Eigenson, I.B.Bazylevych, M.S.Shevchenko
Comments: 1 Page.

Recently one of the authors [1-6] has shown that when solar activity curve begins to go down, then in the vicinity of it's minimum earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. Analysis of data during the period 2010-2018 shows that the probability of false prognosis is no more 2 %. This feature could be used for forecasting these terrestrial events several days in advance. The "opposite" Forbush effect is proposed as possible reason for explanation of this phenomena. In our days, we see from Fig. 1 that the dangerous area lies between April 22 and May 2, 2019. (Addition: earthquakes 6+ are noted as circle’s, earthquakes 7+ as ellipsis and volcanic eruptions as crosses).

Report of Spatial Geodesy on the Rapid Implementation of a Unified Geodetic System in Africa

Authors: Fezzani Chedly, Ben Hadj Salem Abdelmajid
Comments: 13 Pages. It is a numerical edition of the original paper dedicated to the memory of the first author who passed away on March 09, 2019. In French.

Having a unified reference system, established on a universally accepted and utilitarian basis, is an important contribution to the judicious use of geographic information to promote Africa's economic development at the national level, regional and continental. To do so, it is important today to make the best use of space technologies and to assimilate them, especially through Cartographic National Institutions. This paper: - is written for small African mapping institutions, - defines the organizational prerequisites for rapidly implementing the Unified Reference System at the continental level. - serves as a framework to guide the debate on the real questions to be asked in this area.

Nullspace and Mitigation in Seismic Imaging and Seismic Inversion

Authors: August Lau, Alfonso Gonzalez
Comments: 14 Pages.

Seismic inversion is the inverse problem in seismic data processing. Seismic inversion is normally used to recover the medium properties or reflectivity series given the input seismic traces. Nullspace is common in linearized inversion where many vectors could be mapped into the one vector. It is an indication that many models could fit the same data, regardless of the inversion method. Inversion could give odd geometric shapes that are not physical or geological. We will discuss mitigation of nullspace to yield results that are meaningful for interpretation of geologic layers for oil and gas exploration.

Non-Parametric Wavelet Functional Analysis for Horizontal and Vertical Displacements Derived from GPS Stations in Western Alaska During the Year 2012

Authors: Homayoon Zahmatkesh, Abbas Abedini
Comments: 19 Pages. Earth Science Research; Vol. 6, No. 2; 2017

In order to analyze the dynamic processes of the Earth interior and the effect of the propagation of the seismic waves to the surface, a comprehensive study of the Earth crust kinematics is necessary. Although the Global Positing System (GPS) is a powerful method to measure ground displacements and velocities both horizontally and vertically as well as to infer the tectonic stress regime generated by the subsurface processes (from local fault systems to huge tectonic plate movements and active volcanoes), the complexity of the deformation pattern generated during such movements is not always easy to be interpreted. Therefore, it is necessary to work on new methodologies and modifying the previous approaches in order to improve the current methods and better understand the crustal movements. In this paper, we focus on western Alaska area, where many complex faults and active volcanoes exist. In particular, we analyze the data acquired each 30 seconds by three GPS stations located in western Alaska (AC31, AB09 d AB11) from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012 in order to compute their displacements in horizontal and vertical components by vectorial summation of the average daily and annual velocities components. Furthermore, we design non-parametric DMeyer and Haar wavelets for horizontal and vertical velocities directions in order to identify significant and homogenous displacements during the year 2012. Finally, the non-parametric decomposition of total horizontal and vertical normalized velocities based on level 1 and level 2 coefficients have been applied to compute normal and cumulative probability histograms related to the accuracy and statistical evolution of each applied wavelet. The results present a very good agreement between the designed non-parametric wavelets and their decomposition functions for each of the three above mentioned GPS stations displacements and velocities during the year 2012.

The search for weak spectral lines with SNR ≈ 1 in noisy gravitational data is difficult, since the analysis methods used so far do not exploit all available information. The vector FFT presented here reduces the noise level and narrows the FWHM of all spectral lines by taking advantage of the phase information of the FFT.

Exploration geophysics is an applied branch of geophysics, which uses physical methods, such as seismic, gravitational, magnetic, electromagnetic etc, to measure the physical properties of the subsurface. It is most often used to detect or infer the presence and position of economically useful geological deposits, such as ore minerals. The paper shows the results of a mineral search at a feldspar mine with contact rocks wich are rich in peculiar minerals. Nickel and silver mineral were analyzed in this locality, some of them yet unidentified.

Этот эффект является одним из допустимых режимов вращения свободного ассиметричного волчка вокруг средней по величине из трёх главных осей инерции. Представлены аргументы в пользу того, что такие кувырки не могли происходить в исторический период, т.е. в последние 500 – 1000 лет и, тем более, неоднократно. \\\ The article discusses the possibility for the Earth to make " somersaults "because of the" Janibekov effect".

Comments: 22 Pages. The work is on Groundwater development

Abuja sedimentary formation is located within the southern part of the federal capital territory which house Abaji and Kwali area councils. This area was investigated for ground water potential using the effect of the rock structures to determine the hydrology components of the studied area. Geophysical method and geological method of exploration involving the vertical electrical sounding was employed to prospect for groundwater in the Abuja sedimentary Formations. Vertical electrical sounding using the Schlumberger electrode array configuration were deployed along traverses within the area. The soundings were conducted at seven locations .The qualitative analysis of the resistivity data identified relatively high conductive regions indicating possible aquifer zones. The quantitative interpretation of the modelled sounding curves delineated between five and seven subsurface layers at different location within the Formation. These layers were inferred to be the top soil, sandy-clay/clayey-sand, laterite and coarse sandstone. The modelled VES curves characterized the topsoil/weathered basement with resistivity range of 4 to 10Ωm with an estimated depth to basement ranging from 45 m to 120m. The results of the study confirm that the VES methods are very suitable for development of groundwater in these communities within Abuja sedimentary formation. Geophysical method combined with geological logging should hence, form an integral part of groundwater exploration programmes in solving problems associated with groundwater prospecting to locate potential aquifers for the supply of potable water to communities within this Formation.

Comments: 8 Pages.

The analysis of the gravitational data from 2004 and 2011 consistently shows regular phase reversal at intervals of around 50 hours. The four-leaf directional pattern rotates in 200 hours westwards around the N-S axis of the earth. The supposed "anomalous splitting" of 3S2 is a measurement error, caused by wrongly chosen parameters of the Fourier transformation.

Co2 Flush Rates After Soil Crumbling as Related to Soil Carbon Pools and Soil Fragmentation Characteristics

Authors: Magnus Carlsson, Olof Andrén, Vera Kainiemi, Thomas Kätterer
Comments: 9 Pages.

Sensible use of tillage requires knowledge about different aspects of soil crumbling. Decisions of best management practices must be based on complex considerations regarding e.g. effective tractor use, long-term soil health, etc. Research on soil carbon fluxes in tilled soils is an area of investigation which has received much attention recently, but ideally it should be approached in a combined bio-physical manner. We conducted studies on respiration from freshly fragmented clay soil in different aggregate size fractions with help of a multi-channel respirometer. The fragmented soil was characterized in terms of different soil carbon pools. The physical fragmentation itself was characterized in a manner that should be relevant to the three existing ways of relating use of a specific tool configuration to physical outcome of the operation, namely soil mechanical tillage experiments in situ, tests in soil bins and computational soil mechanics. Linear regressions showed that higher specific aggregate surface area, more free organic C per dry soil and more occluded C per dry soil led to higher soil respiration rates.

Ball Lightning as a Hot, Highly Charged, Sphere of Air.

Authors: Chris Allen Broka
Comments: 13 Pages. The Supplementary material may be accessed by emailing the author.

An exceptionally simple model of ball lightning is proposed that describes it as a highly charged sphere of hot, conductive, air surrounded by colder air. This conductive sphere possesses a net excess of charge. This charge will create a corona discharge that will heat the surrounding air thus maintaining the temperature of the ball itself. Numerical simulations are presented which give results that would appear to agree with what many witnesses have reported. It is argued that such spheres are likely positively charged.

The Earth-Moon Collisions, Presenting Three Collisions in Detail

Authors: R. Winnubst
Comments: 27 Pages.

To verify the likelihood of a new solar system formation hypothesis, research was conducted into a possible low speed, shallow angled Earth-Moon collision at 4.1 billion years ago. Via a tailored set of indicators, not just one but three collisions were identified beyond a reasonable doubt. All are presented in great photographic and topographic detail in this paper. On the Moon, the three impact areas are: Aitkin basin (4.1Ga), a double string of major maria (3.9Ga) and wider Oceanus Procellarum (450Ma?). On Earth, the respective corresponding impact areas are identifed as: The Arctic, the Canadian shield and equatorial Gondwana (centred at current Antarctica). As a result, many issues in geology can now be explained, from the ‘faint young Sun paradox’ to Hadean geology and continental drift.

Expansion Tectonics – Is It All Wet?

Authors: Raymond HV Gallucci
Comments: 6 Pages.

Expansion Tectonics postulates that the Earth has grown from a much smaller orb over its history, the size once being as low as 1/4 of today's radius at the extreme (more common estimates are around 60% of today's radius). Scientists have also long speculated as to the source of Earth's water, estimated today to be anywhere from 1.5 to 11 times the current volume of the oceans, with a rough agreement around three times today's ocean volume (implying 2/3 today is "within" the Earth). This paper examines some of the implications of Expansion Tectonics in conjunction with a total water volume three times today's ocean volume, with neither an increase in Earth's mass or water volume over time. Speculation at two extremes range from an early "saturated sponge" Earth, where all this water was retained within the Earth, with essentially none at the surface (the more common postulate of Expansion Tectonics) to a complete "waterworld," where all of the water was atop the surface, i.e., none within.

The Geocentric Testimony of the Tides

Authors: Robert Bennett
Comments: 4 Pages.

Static gravity alone accounts for the observation of the double tides on opposite sides of the earth and the different range of the lunar and solar tides. When the centrifugal acceleration of the Earth’s orbital speed is added to the gravitational accelerations, the HelioC theory is exposed as fictitious. There is no evidence of a centrifugal acceleration ...or force... in the tidal behavior. This agrees with other GC tests, like Newton’s Bucket, Sagnac’s rotor and R. Wang’s linear Sagnac version. Conversely, there are no proofs by scientific method testing or realistic interpretation that the Earth orbits the Sun. The rise and fall of the tides around the world is a semi-diurnal repetitive demonstration of the Earth’s central position in the universe.

Driving Force of Tectonic Plate

Authors: Cres Huang
Comments: 8 Pages.

Gravity is the inward force of keeping it's spherical shape. Force of tectonic motion has to fight against gravity to push the crust from the ocean floor to the top of mountain ranges. The only force that is persistently counteracting and can be stronger then gravity is the centrifugal force. It is likely the centrifugal acceleration made Earth oblate spheroid, and the main driving force of waving mantle along with crust, water and atmosphere.

This preliminary is only an open proposal for further study from the view of mantle/crust waves. Additionally, the added mass and energy of Solar particles and momentum could impact the crust. Like kneading Earth dough, the magnitude could be larger than we think by far. Further study is also recommended.

Examination of MAXLOW’S Model for Expansion Tectonics – an Astronomical Perspective

Authors: Raymond HV Gallucci
Comments: 10 Pages.

While not drawing any conclusion regarding the validity of the theory that Earth has undergone volumetric (and mass) expansion over the course of its geologic history, this paper examines one of the leading contenders' models for just such growth, that of James Maxlow ("Global Tectonic Data Modeling," Terella Press, Australia [2017]). Maxlow’s extensive analysis of (paleo-)geology, paleomagnetics, space geodetics, paleogeography, paleoclimatology, paleobiology, fossil fuels, past extinctions and metallogenics suggest that Earth’s radius has grown exponentially over the past 1.6 x 109 years by a factor of 3.75, with sufficient increase in mass to ensure that surface gravity has not decreased, and quite possibly has increased. A much more cursory examination of this assumption from the perspective of astronomical physics, particularly conservation of Earth’s orbital and rotational angular momentum, suggests a much more “modest” rate of increase, not necessarily exponential. And, while quite limited in comparison to Maxlow’s analysis, this simplified one still raises apparently valid discrepancies that should be addressed. Hopefully, further research and analysis, or validation of different assumptions, can bring these two competing arenas into closer agreement.

The Gravity Theory of Mass Extinction

Authors: John Stojanowski
Comments: 11 Pages.

The cause of mass extinctions is a subject that has been debated for well over a hundred years. Currently, the two prime suspects are bolide impact and volcanism, specifically flood basalt eruptions referred to as Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs). Bolide impact has only been associated with one of the Big Five mass extinctions at the end of the Cretaceous Period whereas four of the Big Five mass extinctions have unquestionably been associated with LIPs as is the case for other major extinctions. Based upon the above, volcanic association with mass extinction is hypothesized to have had its lethal effect via global warming, global cooling, anoxia and hypoxia. However, the problem with the volcanogenic extinction hypothesis is that the onset of eruptions in the mid-Phanerozoic eon slightly postdates the main phase of extinctions.09,14 This paper introduces a third theory to explain the mass extinctions, the Gravity Theory of Mass Extinction (GTME)01, which is able to explain the primary cause of the extinctions, which is not volcanogenic and not the result of bolide impact. It is also able to explain why LIPs are associated with most of the extinctions as well as geomagnetic reversals and massive changes in sea level. In addition, it offers a reason why a bolide impact occurred near the end of the Cretaceous Period.

Possible Source of The Earth’s Geomagnetic Field

Authors: Yuanjie Huang
Comments: 20 Pages.

The earth’s geomagnetic field provides a safe environment for the earth’s biology against solar wind. However, revealing source of geomagnetic field is very challenging and it has puzzled people for several hundred years. Here, based on the previously proposed Yuheng Zhang effect, I show a simple theory to account for generation of geomagnetic field. This theory only has two requisites, one is metallic core, the other is self-rotation of the earth. Based on this theory, several interesting points are concluded: 1) negative charges accumulate at a metallic thin layer (MTL) at core-mantle boundaries (CMB) and positive charges distribute within the earth’s core; 2) rotation of the separated charges would yield geomagnetic field and gives field strength for the Earth, Ganymede and Mercury, which are in agreement with measurement values; 3) misalignment of MTL rotation axis with the earth’s rotation axis causes geomagnetic declination and a quadrupole field; 4) for a planet, a solid metallic core will generate a geomagnetic field without magnetic declination and geomagnetic reversal, and geomagnetic declination suggests a liquid metallic core; 5) dynamic evolution processes of MTL dominate long-term geomagnetic variations and reversals, e.g., a slower MTL rotation causing a geomagnetic reversal and recovery of MTL rotation eliminating geomagnetic reversal; 6) at center of the earth’s inner core, the geomagnetic field would show a reversal at a critical radius, and geomagnetic fields point from the earth’s south pole to north pole; 7) the earth’s geomagnetic pole and some quadrupoles would exhibit the same angular velocity of westward drift; 8) even if geomagnetic dipole vanished, quadrupole fields would continue to sustain and protect biology from harmful ultraviolet radiation and the solar wind; 9) absence of internal magnetic field for the Venus, Moon and Mars implies non-existence of metallic core in these planets and moons. In all, this theory provide people a new sight to understand the source of the earth’s geomagnetic field.

Plausibility of Earth Once Having a Thick Atmosphere – Examining the Rate of Impact Cratering

Authors: Raymond H.V. Gallucci
Comments: 12 Pages.

Theories abound as to how dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures could have grown to such immense sizes, inconsistent with the spectrum of sizes for today’s creatures and Earth’s living conditions. Some focus directly on changes in the governing physics of the universe, such as a different gravitational constant. Some postulate that, rather than this difference, the earlier Earth experienced lower gravity due to differences in its size and mass. The majority focus on biological and aerodynamical anomalies that may have prevailed to explain these gargantuan sizes. This paper focuses on the latter group, offering an independent means by which to test the hypothesis that a (much) thicker atmosphere provided the buoyancy needed by these creatures to exist on land. This means is astronomical, an examination of possible differences in the rate of impact cratering on Earth due to atmospheric differences. With the Earth’s atmosphere allegedly experiencing eras of much greater thickness than current, and alternating between these “thick” and “thin” atmospheric eras, it is postulated that, in addition to the biological and aerodynamical anomalies, a difference in the cratering rate from meteor impacts on Earth should be evident. Thicker atmosphere would “burn up” more meteors, reducing the cratering rate when compared to that during thinner atmospheric eras. This paper explores this, using the cratering rate from meteor impacts on the Moon as a “control” since it has no atmosphere to attenuate meteors but also is in Earth’s orbital vicinity and should have experienced a nearly equivalent rate of meteor influx per unit surface area.

Correlation Between Solar and Seismic Activity: Prognosis of Earthquakes and Volcanic Eruptions Based on Daily Solar Indexes

Authors: A. M. Eigenson
Comments: 55 Pages.

Large earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are compared with the epochs of minima of 11-year cycles of solar activity. We use the data from 405 earthquakes with magnitude 7 and more and 71 volcanic eruption during 260 years. Close correlation between years of these terrestrial events and years of minima of solar activity is shown. We also use also daily solar indexes SSp and compare them with terrestrial events, constituting the main novelty of this work. Here we use the data of earthquakes between December 856 and January 2016, as well as data of volcanic eruptions in the same period. We subsequently compare daily indexes SSp during 2016 and 4 months of 2017 with earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. An important results is demonstrated: as soon as solar activity curve begins to go down, on the same day or some days after the earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur. Evidently, this circumstance could be used for prognosis of these terrestrial events for several days in advance. In all cases considered our prognosis is confirmed. This is the main result of this article.

Close Correlation Between Solar and Seismic Activities

Authors: A. M. Eigenson
Comments: 16 Pages.

Large earthquakes in the last 260 years are compared with the epochs of minima of 11-year cycles of Solar activity. We use the data from 352 earthquakes of magnitude 7 and larger. Close correlation between earthquakes and the minima of solar cycles is shown, with the correlation coefficient of 0.9998. Maximal number of earthquakes shows 11-year periodicity. The number of earthquakes increases with time and reaches its currently largest number in the last Solar cycles, corresponding to the decrease of Solar activity in cycle 23. Furthermore, we analyse the data of large volcanic eruptions in the last 400 years. Similarly to earthquakes, the volcanic eruptions show the correlation with the minima of Solar activity, with the correlation coefficient of 0.9994. The volcanic eruptions also tend to increase with time, corresponding to the decrease of Solar activity. The found correlation between solar and seismic activities opens the possibility of prognosis because the Solar activity may be predicted for many years forward.

A Tide Loading Driving for Plate Motion

Authors: Yongfeng Yang
Comments: 18 Pages. Please see the following version for a detailed description of this work.

A significant progress in the geophysics field in the last century is the confirmation of plate motion. But the force behind this motion remains unknown so far, regardless of the continuous efforts by scientific community. Here we propose, the daily tide loading yields a liquid pressure onto continental slope via ocean water, this pressure further contributes a horizontal force to push continent’s side and thus move continent and the plate it sites on. The resultant horizontal force based on ideal parameters determines a motion of 39.72, 48.98, and 53.26 mm/year respectively for African, Indian, and Australian plate, and a rotation of 6.84*10-9 rad/year for American plate.

Earthquake Theory

Authors: Wan-Chung Hu
Comments: 11 Pages.

Earthquake is thought to be due to plate tectonic movement. However, this theory has several fetal defects which fail to lead successful earthquake prediction. First, sudden outset of earthquake in a certain point cannot be due to chronic continental drift in large scale. Second, continental drift is only proved between South America and Africa which cannot explain all the mechanisms of earthquakes. Third, plate movement theory cannot explain huge intraplate earthquakes. Fourth, the old crusts sunk into toughs after the generation of new crusts in mid-ocean ridge. Thus, it cannot be the driving crusting force for earthquakes. Fifth, we experience a first longitudinal P wave followed by a transverse S wave during earthquakes. If plate movement causes earthquakes, we should experience a transverse S wave first and majorly. Here, I propose that earthquakes are actually the abrupt release of electromagnetic radiation from the faults. There is high temperature which can generate radiation from inside earth, especially accumulation for several decades. This new theory can explain why earthquakes likely happen in hotspots such as Hawaii or in peri-pacific bands because of crust fissures and toughs. This new theory can explain possible huge intra-plate earthquakes. It can also explain the sunquakes or moonquakes which cannot be explained by plate movement theory. It will also explain why super-moon trends to induce earthquakes. The mechanism of earthquake is the gravity acceleration produced by outward light because light is electromagnetic wave as well as gravity wave. This mechanism can also explain earthquake light and ionosphere anomaly as well as EM field anomaly during earthquakes. This new theory will lead a successful earthquake prediction.

The analysis of space pictures in a range of S-radiations has allowed us to find global network of breaks tunnels of crust on which from global Polar fields huge volumes of hydrocarbons (HC) migrate to the equator. On the way these tunnels cross all known fields of HC, and also zone of earthquakes, active volcanoes and huge holes in the earth. In these parts porous and jointed rocks in which there is a leak from HC tunnels that creates conditions for synthesis from them explosive substances which explosions cause these cataclysms prevail. We also have developed a method of search of places for drilling in tunnels of search wells that allows to get them unlimited volumes of HC that will cause decrease in number of earthquakes and explosions of volcanoes. It is offered to force production of UV from a tunnel which energy will save the population from the volcanic winter caused by explosion of the Yellowstone volcano.

Way of Ten Times Increase Efficiency of Geological Branch and Row Stok Safety of Mankind

Authors: Feliks Royzenman
Comments: 6 Pages.

Because of exhaustion of stocks of deposits on the Earth's surface, new deposits can be discovered mainly in depth. But confidence of deep earth prognosis of industrial deposits in the modern geology is for most of the minerals just 5-10% (90-95% error!). It threatens the world economy and development of the mankind. To solve this crucial issue, the author developed and successfully used for 40 year a new system of high-precision deep earth prognosis of deposits [3]. This system of prognosis makes the mining and geological industry more than 10-fold efficient, provides mineral and raw-stock supply security and creates the basis for efficient development of civilization. Key words: deposits, deep earth prognosis, high confidence of prognosis, discovery of deposits.

Geometric Theory of Inversion and Seismic Imaging II: Inversion + Datuming + Static + Enhancement

Authors: August Lau, Chuan Yin
Comments: 8 pages, 11 figures

The goal of seismic processing is to convert input data collected in the field into a meaningful image based on signal processing and wave equation processing and other algorithms. It is normally a global approach like tomography or FWI (full waveform inversion). Seismic imaging or inversion methods fail partly due to the thin-lens effect or rough surfaces. These interfaces are non-invertible. To mitigate the problem, we propose a more stable method for seismic imaging in 4 steps as layer stripping approach of INVERSION + DATUMING + STATIC + ENHANCEMENT.

Pore-Scale Modeling of Non-Newtonian Flow in Porous Media

Authors: Taha Sochi
Comments: 190 Pages.

The thesis investigates the flow of non-Newtonian fluids in porous media using pore-scale network modeling. Non-Newtonian fluids show very complex time and strain dependent behavior and may have initial yield stress. Their common feature is that they do not obey the simple Newtonian relation of proportionality between stress and rate of deformation. They are generally classified into three main categories: time-independent, time-dependent and viscoelastic. Two three-dimensional networks representing a sand pack and Berea sandstone were used. An iterative numerical technique is used to solve the pressure field and obtain the flow rate and apparent viscosity. The time-independent category is investigated using two fluid models: Ellis and Herschel-Bulkley. The analysis confirmed the reliability of the non-Newtonian network model used in this study. Good results are obtained, especially for the Ellis model, when comparing the network model results to experimental data sets found in the literature. The yield-stress phenomenon is also investigated and several numerical algorithms were developed and implemented to predict threshold yield pressure of the network. An extensive literature survey and investigation were carried out to understand the phenomenon of viscoelasticity with special attention to the flow in porous media. The extensional flow and viscosity and converging-diverging geometry were thoroughly examined as the basis of the peculiar viscoelastic behavior in porous media. The modified Bautista-Manero model was identified as a promising candidate for modeling the flow of viscoelastic materials which also show thixotropic attributes. An algorithm that employs this model was implemented in the non-Newtonian code and the initial results were analyzed. The time-dependent category was examined and several problems in modeling and simulating the flow of these fluids were identified.

The Aqueous Geochemistry Principle

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski
Comments: 3 Pages. 1 screenshot, 1 illustrative graph

A central tenant to stellar metamorphosis theory is the fact that the stages of the evolution of a star include aqueous material, and this aqueous material facilitates the chemical reactions that occur as the star evolves, cools and dies becoming the remnant or “planet/exoplanet” used in popular circles. This paper outlines a simple fact of geochemistry.

Gravity Waves and Mercury Revise Geodynamo

Authors: Rodney Bartlett
Comments: 8 Pages.

Most people have a rough idea of the cause of Earth's magnetic field, don't they? It's the geodynamo, also called the magnetic dynamo theory. The heat from the solid inner core puts the liquid outer core in motion, and the movements of the outer core's electrically conducting fluids (such as molten iron) generate the planet's magnetic field. Electrically conducting fluids occur in the Sun, other stars and most planets – and are the scientifically accepted mechanism for magnetic fields. However, the planet Mercury suggests this process is wrong. Is it possible to propose a plausible alternative? The proposal here has both Earthly and Space components - it is still linked to the nature of, and motions in, the core plus it refers to the phenomenon of zero electrical resistance known as superconductivity as well as the recent discovery of gravitational waves. It also refers to the Moon's attraction on Earth's oceans, binary stars, the Sun's coronal heating and mass ejections, sunspots and mini ice ages, and black holes. A proposal that has support from only one or two sources may indeed prove to be correct. But surely support from several additional sources must greatly improve that proposal's chances of success. It's the goal of this article to be comprehensive in presenting its approach to the geodynamo. It's important to properly understand our planet's magnetic field because it protects us from the charged particles of the solar wind and cosmic rays. Without this protection from the magnetosphere, Earth would be stripped of its ozone layer that keeps excess ultraviolet radiation from harming life. And no magnetic field also means no atmospheric light displays called auroras, as well as no direction-finding compasses.

During the last 55 years, there have been many attempts to measure the three frequencies of the 1S1 self-resonance, the vibration of the Earth's core. One reason for this failure could be the insufficient reduction of the background noise, caused by the earthquakes. This is just another attempt to solve the ancient mystery. This time, perhaps with more success ;-)

Systèmes de Référence, Systèmes Projectifs

Authors: Henri Marcel Dufour, Abdelmajid Ben Hadj Salem
Comments: 27 Pages. In French. It is an-update version of a paper dated 1979 with comments of the second author.

Many geodetic works currently exist on the surface of the globe, which have developed through regional networks, usually each having a fundamental point, where the astronomical data (\phi= latitude,\lambda=longitude,Az=azimuth) of a reference are confused with the counterparts geodetic data. The comparison of 2 networks, and, step by step, of all the connectable networks, can be done by the analysis of the coordinates of their common points. To this end, we can use 3 types of coordinates: - Geographical coordinates = simple method, but not very convenient for different ellipsoids. - Three-dimensional cartesian coordinates, the most rigorous method in the case where the so-called geoid correction has been made. - Coordinates in conformal projection. An analysis of the main formulas that can be used is studied by the first author in this article.

Report of Spatial Geodesy on the Rapid Implementation of a Unified Geodetic System in Africa

Authors: Fezzani Chedly, Abdelmajid Ben Hadj Salem
Comments: 13 Pages. It is a numerical edition of the original paper dedicated to the memory of the first author who passed away on March 09, 2019. In French.

Having a unified reference system, established on a universally accepted and utilitarian basis, is an important contribution to the judicious use of geographic information to promote Africa's economic development at the national level, regional and continental. To do so, it is important today to make the best use of space technologies and to assimilate them, especially through Cartographic National Institutions. This paper: - is written for small African mapping institutions, - defines the organizational prerequisites for rapidly implementing the Unified Reference System at the continental level. - serves as a framework to guide the debate on the real questions to be asked in this area.

From Hilbert to Dilbert: a Non-Orthodox Approach to Gravitation, Psychosynthesis, Economics, Cosmology and Other Issues

Authors: Victor Christianto, Florentin Smarandache, Robert Neil Boyd, Yunita Umniyati, Daniel Chandra
Comments: 208 Pages. This book has been published by Divine Publisher. Your comments are welcome

This book took an unconventional theme because we submit an unorthodox theme too. Karl Popper’s epistemology suggests that when the theory is refuted by observation, then it is time to look for a set of new approaches. In the first chapter, it is shown that Hilbert’s axiomatic program has failed not only by experiment (Mie theory does not agree with experiment) but also in terms of logic (Gödel theorem). Therefore we set out a new approach, starting from an old theory of Isaac Newton. Dilbert cartoon series often offer surprising for old problems, especially in this era of corporatocracy. Now we would call such an out-of-the-box solution to the old Hilbert axiomatic program as Dilbert way (or Dilbertian, if you wish). Readers may ask : but what can physicists learn from Dilbert cartoons? While it seems not obvious at first glance, yes we believe there is a great character of Dilbert cartoon, i.e. to put it in one phrase: “out-of-the box and brutally honest.” We do think that such a brutal honesty is also needed in many fields of physics: from theoretical physics to applied physics, as will be discussed throughout this book.

The Earth Moon Collisions: Presenting Three Collisions in Detail

Authors: R. Winnubst
Comments: 31 Pages.

To verify the likelihood of a new solar system formation hypothesis, research was conducted into a possible low speed, shallow angled collision between an ice-covered Earth and Moon, 4.1 billion years ago. Via a tailored set of indicators, not just one but three collisions were identified beyond a reasonable doubt. All are presented in great photographic and topographic detail in this paper. On the Moon, the three impact areas are: Aitkin basin, a double string of major maria and wider Oceanus Procellarum. On Earth, the respective corresponding impact areas are: The Arctic, the Canadian Shield and equatorial Gondwana (centred at current Antarctica). As a result, many issues in geology can now be explained, from the ‘faint young Sun paradox’ to Hadean geology and continental drift.

Plausibility of Earth Once Having a Thick Atmosphere – Examining the Rate of Impact Cratering

Authors: Raymond H Gallucci
Comments: 20 Pages. Now includes presentation.

Theories abound as to how dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures could have grown to such immense sizes, inconsistent with the spectrum of sizes for today’s creatures and Earth’s living conditions. Some focus directly on changes in the governing physics of the universe, such as a different gravitational constant. Some postulate that, rather than this difference, the earlier Earth experienced lower gravity due to differences in its size and mass. The majority focus on biological and aerodynamical anomalies that may have prevailed to explain these gargantuan sizes. This paper focuses on the latter group, offering an independent means by which to test the hypothesis that a (much) thicker atmosphere provided the buoyancy needed by these creatures to exist on land. This means is astronomical, an examination of possible differences in the rate of impact cratering on Earth due to atmospheric differences. With the Earth’s atmosphere allegedly experiencing eras of much greater thickness than current, and alternating between these “thick” and “thin” atmospheric eras, it is postulated that, in addition to the biological and aerodynamical anomalies, a difference in the cratering rate from meteor impacts on Earth should be evident. Thicker atmosphere would “burn up” more meteors, reducing the cratering rate when compared to that during thinner atmospheric eras. This paper explores this, using the cratering rate from meteor impacts on the Moon as a “control” since it has no atmosphere to attenuate meteors but also is in Earth’s orbital vicinity and should have experienced a nearly equivalent rate of meteor influx per unit surface area.

What Drives Plate Motions?

Authors: Yongfeng Yang
Comments: 36 Pages. Significant improvements are made in this version.

Plate motion is a remarkable Earth process and is widely ascribed to several driving forces: ridge push, slab pull, and basal drag. However, an in-depth investigation demonstrates that these forces are incomplete. Here, we propose that deep oceans generate pressure and that the application of this pressure against the walls of ocean basins, which are the sides of continents, may yield enormous horizontal forces (i.e., ocean-generated forces). The net effects of these forces provide lateral push to the continents and may cause them to move horizontally; further, the moving continents drag the crusts connected to them, which gives rise to plate motion. The estimate shows that ocean-generated forces may impel South America, Africa, India, and Australia to move 2.8, 4.2, 5.7, and 6.3 cm/yr, respectively, and the movement of the Pacific Plate may reach 8.9 cm/yr.

What Drives Plate Motions ?

Authors: Yongfeng Yang
Comments: 38 Pages.

Plate motion is an amazing feature on the Earth and is widely ascribed to several driving forces like ridge push, slab pull, and basal drag. However, an in-depth investigation shows these forces incomplete. Here we propose, the deep oceans are generating pressures everywhere, the application of these pressures over the walls of ocean basins, which consists of the sides of continents, may yield enormous horizontal forces (i.e., the ocean-generating forces), the net effect of these forces provides lateral push to the continents and may cause them to move horizontally, further, the moving continents drag the crusts that they connect to move, these totally give birth to plate motion. A roughly estimation shows that the ocean-generating forces may give South American, African, Indian, and Australian continents a movement of respectively 2.8, 4.2, 5.7, and 6.3 cm/yr, and give Pacific Plate a movement of 8.9 cm/yr.

What Drives Plate Motion?

Authors: Yongfeng Yang
Comments: 44 Pages.

Plate motion was widely thought to be a manifestation of mantle dynamics. However, an in-depth investigation shows this understanding incompetent. Here we propose, the tide-related oceans yield varying pressures between them, the application of these pressures to the continent's sides forms enormously unequal horizontal forces (i.e., the ocean-generating forces), the net effect of these forces provides lateral push to the continent and may cause it to move horizontally, further, the travelling continent works its adjacent crusts to move, these totally form plate motion. A roughly estimation shows that the ocean-generating force may give South American, African, Indian, and Australian continents a movement of respectively 2.8, 4.2, 5.7, and 6.3 cm/yr, and give Pacific Plate a movement of 8.9 cm/yr. Some torque effects of the ocean-generating force contributes to rotate North American and Eurasian continents.

Plate motion was widely thought to be a manifestation of mantle dynamics. However, an in-depth investigation shows this understanding incompetent. Here we propose, the daily tides yield varying pressures between oceans, the application of these pressures to the continent's sides forms enormously unequal horizontal forces, the net effect of these forces provides lateral push to the continent and may cause it to move horizontally, further, the moving continent by basal drag entrains its adjacent crust to move, these totally give birth to plate motion. A roughly estimation shows that the oceanic tide-generating force may independently give South American, African, Indian, and Australian continents a movement of respectively 2.8, 4.2, 5.6, and 6.3 cm/yr. Some torque effects may rotate North American and Eurasian continents, and a combination of two lateral pushes offers Pacific Plate unusual motion (nearly orthogonal to Australian plate’s motion).

Here we propose, the daily tides yield varying pressures between oceans, the application of these pressures to the continent's sides forms enormously unequal horizontal forces, the net effect of these forces provides lateral push to the continent and may cause it to move horizontally, further, the moving continent by basal drag entrains its lower lithosphere to move, these totally form plate motion. Quantitatively estimation shows that the tide generating force give South American, African, Indian, and Australian continents a movement of respectively 2.8, 4.2, 5.6, and 6.3 cm/yr.

What Drives Plate Motions?

Authors: Yongfeng Yang
Comments: 24 Pages. Significant improvement is made in this version.

Plate tectonics that principally describes earth’s plate motion and terrestrial features was long thought to be a manifestation of mantle dynamics. However, an in-depth investigation finds the convection currents incompetent in explaining plate motion. Here we propose, the daily tide loadings around the margins of continents yield unequal pressures onto continental slopes, the net effect of these pressures is to push continents to horizontally move. The travelling continents, by means of basal friction, moderately entrain the continental crusts beneath them and adjoining oceanic crusts, creating weaker motions and terrestrial features for the latter. Quantitatively estimation shows that the pressures yielded due to tide loadings provide South American, African, Indian, and Australian continents respectively a motion of 33, 20, 64, and 71 mm/year. A torque effect likely contributes rotation to North American and Eurasian continents, while the combination of two lateral push forces respectively from North American Plate and from Australian Plate gives Pacific Plate unusual motion (nearly orthogonal to the Australian Plate’s).

What Drives the Earth’s Plates ?

Authors: Yongfeng Yang
Comments: 20 Pages. Significant revision in this version.

Plate tectonic theory that comprehensively describes the earth’s plate motion and terrestrial features represents one of the most significantly achievements in the past 100 years. However, an indisputable fact around this theory is the force behind plate motion is still unknown. Here we propose, the daily tide loadings around continents yield pressures onto continental slopes, the net effect combined from these pressures pushes the continents to globally move. These moving continents, representing the upper parts of the continental crusts, by means of basal friction, moderately entrain the crusts beneath them and the adjoining oceanic crusts, creating various terrestrial features. Quantitatively estimation shows that tide loadings provide South American, African, Indian, and Australian continents respectively a nearly straight motion of 28.44, 41.11, 55.63, and 61.60 mm/year. A torque effect likely contributes rotation to North American and Eurasian continents.

The Aqueous Geochemistry Principle

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski
Comments: 4 Pages. 3 illustrations, 1 link

The stages of the evolution of a star include aqueous material, and this aqueous material facilitates the chemical reactions that occur as the star evolves, cools and dies becoming the remnant or “planet/exoplanet” used in popular circles. This paper outlines a simple fact of geochemistry.

Gravitational Waves Explain Planetary Magnetic Fields

Authors: Rodney Bartlett
Comments: 4 Pages.

The cause of Earth's magnetic field is said to be the geodynamo, also called the magnetic dynamo theory. The heat from the solid inner core puts the liquid outer core in motion, and the movements of the outer core's electrically conducting fluids (such as molten iron) generate the planet's magnetic field. Electrically conducting fluids occur in the Sun, other stars and most planets – and are the scientifically accepted mechanism for magnetic fields. However, the planets Mercury and Venus suggest this process is only partly correct.

Candidates for the Slichter Triplet

Authors: Herbert Weidner
Comments: 5 Pages.

During the last 55 years, there have been many unsuccessful attempts to measure the three frequencies of the 1S1 self-resonance, the vibration of the Earth's core. One reason for this failure could be the insufficient reduction of the background noise, caused by the earthquakes. This is just another attempt to solve the ancient mystery. This time, perhaps with more success ;-)
