ICE AGE REBOUND has re-distributed EARTH’S MASS, creating MIMA MOUNDS and ELLIPTICALLY-ARRANGED STRUCTURES in PUGET SOUND
ICE AGE REBOUND has re-distributed the EARTH’S MASS, creating MIMA MOUNDS, ELLIPTICALLY-ARRANGED STRUCTURES below the PUGET SOUND in BOTTOM SEDIMENTS, and has reduced the normal WESTWARD EARTH TIDES.
While investigating the occurrence of Mima Mounds on Whidbey Island, at the Harbor Hills Golf Course, I found that the normal 20mm/year westward shift of the Earth’s Crust was reduced and rearranged in elliptical patterns. Further, there was an accompanying uplift of the mounds side-by-side with dips between the mounds. In other words, sediments were shoved vertically at the expense of the normal horizontal movement.
This has been found to be universally important for the uplift of mounds (forming mountains), where the rises are arranged in elliptical patterns- regardless of the scale. There are small knolls in ice-unloading areas, larger mounds in thrust faulted areas, and mountains in lands near the coastline of continents.
I was investigating Penn Cove on Whidbey Island, to determine why the GRID LINES were spaced 1 km apart, compared to 20 km for many noticed in the North Pacific Ocean, This occurred east to west, and the north to south grids were spaced 1.63 km apart. When I remembered that the ratio of the 40,000 year WOBBLE CYCLE to the largest time of PRECESSION of the EQUINOX of 24,500 years was 1.63, I realized that the grid lines reflected a reduction of the westward earth tides. I searched for other places on the island where I could find the association of change in the wobbles of the earth, and found that they were displayed just one mile from my home. I had passed the Harbor Hills Golf course daily, not realizing that Mima Mounds could be seen without getting out of the auto. The mounds are arranged elliptically as can be seen in the Little Rock, WA state park (off I-5, about 2 miles to the west):
There are dually-presented arcs of mounds, which cross each other. They are about 12 meters separated from each other, but the size of the individual mounds varies, and the regular separation is not normally noticed. A similar arrangement occurs for the Harbor Hills area, and there are two ellipses (at least) concentrically-arranged. Upon measurement of the extent of the local pattern, this is found to be half of the normal 100,000 year ELLIPTICAL Milankovitch cycle- 50,000 years. I subsequently found that this reduction was typical of areas which have exhibited rebound; glacial ice has melted into the sea (mass has been transferred to oceans, as land based ice has disappeared). The change of the Milankovitch cycle is merely apparent- not real- since the time interval of the cycle is calculated from the arcuate curvature (time= diameter/tidal rate, in mm per year) and the tidal rate is less than the normal 20mm yearly movement. The 50k.yr. calculation is too small, because the assumed tidal rate is too large; 10mm/year would yield the correct 100 k.y. cycle.
I then wondered whether the arrangement of mounds in an elliptical pattern, whenever mass of the earth’s crust is transferred laterally, occurred on a larger scale. Examples would be wherever lateral thrusting transpires. The closest cases I had already inspected visually and visited in the field were the thrusting of the Olympic Mountains and the shove of the San Juan Islands toward the west, very near Whidbey Island. Sure enough, the ELLIPTICITY of the San Juans is obvious from a Google Earth view:
The islands have been excellently investigated and reported by Elizabeth and William Orr in Geology of the Pacific Northwest, and the Olympics in Rowland Tabor’s Geology of Olympic National Park. The thrusting has been irregular through time, since the Mesozoic for the San Jeans, and since the Eocene for the Olympics. The thrusting could be visualized as lateral “jerking” of portions of the crust, after asteroids have created transfer of mass during the anomalous times of 32 and 64 m.y. (extinctions related to events reported for the KT and Oregon plant die-offs). Using the same lateral transfer of mass as with the Mima Mounds, but on a LARGER SCALE, there would occur an irregular slow jerk of the crust- which I call “CHATTER”.
Chatter is defined as the 2nd derivative of acceleration, dV/dT (change of velocity with time): dA/dT, and its first derivative is JERK, J. The second derivative is dJ/dT or CHATTER, which may be visualized as a back and forth movement of your head as you unevenly accelerate your vehicle. Should the earth be accelerated or retarded TEMPORARILY by asteroid strikes or by transfer of land bound ice to the sea (LATERALLY), chatter would occur. The movement may be very slow, as in the case of thousands of years for REBOUND- due to melting of ice. Chatter may be noticed now, for the Puget Sound, in below Google Earth view:
This case has an approximate date of initiation, that of the cessation of the ice age of 14,000 years. This event could be the start of the reported date of the extinction of large mammals, of 12,900 years prior to now. According to the BINARY THEOREM, where events occurred in multiples of 2 (1/8th, 1/4th, ½, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16. 32, 64. 128, 256, 512, and 1024 million years), the instability would have occurred at 12,500 years prior, and this small difference could be due to small gravitational changes ignored in the Earth, Moon, Planets, Sun system.
THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF INFORMATION ON WHIDBEY ISLAND, WHICH SOME GEOLOGISTS HAVE CATEGORIZED AS "DIRT GEOLOGY". REBOUND, CREATING "CHATTER" WAS DISCOVERED THERE, AND NOW WE HAVE A CHANCE TO EVALUATE THE 12,900 YEAR EVENT, WHICH GEOLOGISTS HAVE CATEGORIZED AS A MASTODON KILLER. I BELIEVE THE ENTIRE PHENOMENON IS RELATED TO THE REDISTRIBUTION OF MELTING ICE INTO THE SEAS, AND NOT AN ASTEROID STRIKE (CREATING CHATTER AS EARTH TIDES ARE PARTLY OFFSET!
