ENLARGING A DIGITAL PHOTO REQUIRES ONLY THAT YOU CLICK ON THE CENTER OF THE PHOTO. EXPANDED GOOGLE PHOTO OF THE SEAFLOOR EAST OF WHIDBEY ISLAND IN SHALLOW WATER SHOWS EXCELLENT ARRANGEMENT OF SUBSEA MIMA STRUCTURES. THESE ARE ONLY 14K.Y. OLD (USING PUBLISHED TERMINATION OF THE LOCAL ICE AGE), AND HAVE NOT HAD SUFFICIENT EROSION OF THE BOTTOM SEDIMENTS TO ERASE THEM. THIS PHOTO SHOULD CONVINCE EVEN A GEOLOGIST THAT THERE ARE STRUCTURES WHICH PORTRAY THE WOBBLE AND "CHATTER" OF THE EARTH;
The earth experiences “ringing” of its solid mass occasionally, and this is most noticeable in areas where the ICE AGE has deposited large amounts of solid water. When this melts, the transfer of water to the oceans causes the normal earth tides to be offset by oppositely-moving eastward tides- resulting in a resonance or “ringing”.
This was discovered with an analysis of a MIMA MOUNDS, which are found in the Puget Sound; these are correlated with unloading of ice or with REBOUND. This is seen in the Google Earth photo for both Whidbey Island, at Harbor Hills golf course and at Strawberry Point, both onshore and sub-sea nearby. The Mounds are separated by approximately 12 meters and form elliptical patterns- seen from the larger view:
The pattern is one for the development of a terrace (which is almost level, but tilting away from the terraced sea bottom), and then an elliptical arrangement of mounds. The mounds are shoved upwardly, so that arrangement of ellipses (which become smaller as time of formation is younger). The arrangement of mounds is due to a “jerking” of the terrace, and it has a different rate of upward movement compared to the tidal lateral movement (which is near zero for the zone of terracing). The terraces may be easily located by finding 2 opposing arcuate cliffs, which indicate movements offsetting each other- eastward vs. westward.
THE METHOD OF DETERMINING AGE OF DYNAMIC MOVEMENTS OF THE CRUST IS NOT WITHOUT DIFFICULTIES IN INTERPRETATION. ABOVE IS SHOWN THE ROCKY POINT CASE, WHERE WHIDBEY ISLAND HAS BEEN SUBJECTED TO BOTH NORMAL WEST TIDAL MOVEMENTS BEFORE THE ICE AGE, AND WHERE MOVEMENTS WERE EASTWARD AND LATER WESTWARD (WHILE ICE WAS PUSHING THE CRUST DOWNWARD DURING THE 1-2M.Y. INTERVAL.
Secondly, as the mounds “grow” upwardly, they enlarge outwardly in both directions. This is similar to throwing a STONE in a pond, with development of outwardly-moving ripples. The stone is the ice, which has been ejected into the sea, and occurs whenever cliffs are convex eastwardly. This opposes the normal westward TIDALLY-FORMED convex westward cliffs, which normally move 20mm/year. The local net movement must be measured locally, and it may be as low as 1mm/yr, so that there is a drastic error in calculation of the age of the movement if the normal TIDE SHIFT is used for calculations.
Next, there is a similar pattern for such developments as the SAN JUAN Islands, where there occurs an elliptical arrangement for the upwardly-lifting mounds (islands or circular portions of individual islands-SUCH AS MT. CONSTITUTION, an intrusion):
Analyzing a simpler development, such as the EQUATORIAL ZONE, where there is little Coriolis effect, no Latitudinal correction, with N-S presentation:
The equator indicates that the CHATTER induces less westward movement with time, on the order of 4km/spacing. I will check with other means to determine whether this is also 4km/m.y. If so, the N-S movement indicates that the error is less for the calculated AGE, and that we have found that both the KT strike and the 40m.y. event have left their traces.
When this is confirmed by independent means, this will explain why the earth’s crust exhibits anomalous behavior for such events as asteroid strikes and as-not-yet-found events: the 40 million year anomaly (observed along the Mendocino transform- Kimmei, at Central America, Arctic Ocean- Chukchi, and for the post-
Eocene thrusting and rotation of the Olympic Mtns.) and the MASTODON KILLER OF EXPECTED 12,900 YEARS AGE.
Even for larger features, such as the AMAZON BASIN, there is similar terrace formation, uplift of Mima-like mounds (rotations or arcuate developments), and reduced TIDAL MOVEMENTS of less than 20km/m.y. It was noticed early in my investigation, that South America was retarded relatively to NA, in its westward movement, The rate of 10mm/yr, less than the usual 20km/m.y. would account for the lag of SA behind NA in its westward movement since Mesozoic times:
I WONDERED ABOUT THE CASCADES AND THE SIERRA CURVILINEARS, WHERE THE INITIATION OF EACH IS A FACTOR, AND THE SEPARATION OF THE TWO AT THE EO BOUNDARY HAS CAUSED A SHIFT WESTWARD OF SIERRAS RELATIVE TO THE CASCADES. THERE IS DEBATE ABOUT THE ORIGINAL TIME OF FORMATION OF THE SIERRAS, SINCE SOME POLLEN INDICATIONS HAVE HINTED THAT THE SIERRAS ROSE BEFORE 50M.Y. THE USE OF THE RELATION OF DIAMETER/20MM/YEAR > AGE WILL SOLVE THE FIRST ARGUMENT, AND THE ARC MAY BE SEEN TO ONLY SLIGHTLY INFLUENCE THE AGE CALCULATION. THE KEY QUESTION IS WHETHER THERE WAS "CHATTER" WITH THE INTERFERING MOVEMENTS, CAUSING ERROR IN THE AGE CALCULATION. SHOULD THE MOVEMENT RATE HAVE BEEN REDUCED, THE AGE CALCULATION WOULD HAVE RESULTED IN AN OLDER AGE, SO THAT EITHER WAY WE HAVE SOLVED THE INITIATION ARGUMENT:
ANOTHER WAY TO LOOK AND MAKE AN ANALYSIS OF THE SHEAR AND ROTATION OF METASEDIMENTS, OUT-OF-PLACE IN QUATERNARY TILL, MAY BE MADE WITH AN OBLIQUE VIEW (NORTH IS TO THE LEFT, ABOVE). THERE ARE SEVERAL CONFLICTING SHEAR CIRCLES, AND THESE ARE RELATED TO MALINKOVITCH CYCLES' HARMONICS. FORM YOUR OWN OPINION, NOW THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THE POLAR WOBBLE AND PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOX INFLUENCE ON ROTATIONS WITHIN THE EARTH"S CRUST:
Mendocino Transforms show CONTINUAL ACTIVITY SINCE PRECAMBRIAN
Remembering that reversal of convex curves and associated seamounts indicates that CHATTER has occurred, but that GRID LINES allow use of the AGE DIVISOR of 20km/m.y. Look at the analysis of the Mendocino transform at the midpoint:
There are many transforms with indications of various ages, as shown by various arc diameters. This portrayal tries to sort them, according to whether there is chatter (which was associated with the KT strike and uplift of the convex eastward Rocky Mountains). We cannot use the divisor whenever there is chatter, since there is a reduced tidal rate with the accompanying uplift and lateral elliptical rotation. Chatter lines are shown, for several converging lines at the right side of the photo, so that there was a time interval where the reduced tidal effect transpired. This is for the interval from KT to the 40m.y. event. We are trying to find the event, where only its after-effects are shown on GOOGLE EARTH. I believe it represents an instability, or a deviation of the CRUST from its normal behavior, so that it may only be recognized by its influence. The above photo should help sort this; there are indications that this transform is the locus of many repetitions of these instabilities. Below is one associated with an inflection in the Rocky Mountains, which would be that AFTER the KT event:
There is too much information on the above photos, but most of it pertains to calculated AGES OF FORMATION OF ARCUATE SHEAR. We will add to this analysis on separate photos, but for now there is a hint that we have "ZEROED IN" on the appropriate region for finding the 40 m.y. event, which would have transpired after KT and before the 32 m.y. PLANT KILLER.
Another clue to the importance of the number 9 is that of 9K km from the 40N latitude Mendocino coastal point to the Marianas TRENCH; 9K/40K earth circumference is 1/9th of the GLOBE traverse. This was found when I recalled that the major transforms were 7.2 degrees ( 1/50th) of the earth’s circumference apart from each other. This would necessitate that the transforms would cross at some point (since circumferences are not parallel, but are a type of Meridian). The Garlock transform at Santa Barbara, CA does not agree with the crossing; and the next to the south- that of the one to Maui-Molokai measures 9K, from offshore Baja Peninsula (the fulcrum of a significant rotation) 9K km to the EQUATOR near Admiralty Island. (Remind me to regale you later of my excursion to this island during the 50’s, when I encountered my first significant Navigational error enroute and wound up “homing in” on a large thunder cloud similar to the shape of the island on RADAR). Meanwhile, back on the ranch, I had already found that the Garlock fault caused CCW rotation of the CA coast, some 700 km toward the Death Valley anomaly. Consequently, the 700 km difference (shown in green) accounts for the failure of the 9K from offshore Santa Barbara to agree with the location of the Marianas Trench.
All this accentuates that the earth is acting as a unit, affecting movements of the individual quadrants. Continental mass floats on the asthenosphere, performing differently from basaltic oceanic crustal mass; its dynamics create either GRID PATTERNS or SEAMOUNTS- one to the exclusion of the other. GRIDS result from ordinary EARTH TIDES, whereas when there is interference from mass-redistribution (REBOUND), asteroids, or lateral thrusting, the lateral shift of 20km/m.y. is reduced as much as 95%. I don’t intend to analyze other quadrants, but merely insert entities which bear on the Quadransphere, Qsna. The Marianas Trench, the Equator, and the MAR obviously are significant on a global scale.
WHAT HAVE WE FOUND SO FAR, in our search for the NUMBER 9-40 m.y. ANOMALY?
1. The Mendocino 40N transform reflects the EASTERN-MOVING Marianas trench, which is closing the gap to Qsna;
2. The 20km/m.y. TIDAL WESTWARD MOVEMENT pertains to the Americas and not to the other quadrants (30km/m.y is measured for the Marianas); Gridlines are rare in the other quadrants, whereas seamounts are common;
3. Everything found so far indicates that we are viewing the effects associated with MECHANICS, not PLUMES, HOTSPOTS, and other thermal events. Creation of continental slopes, thrust faulting, shallow metamorphism, vulcanism, and uplift of mounds, mountains, and intrusions result from gravitational adjustments- due to the combined influence of the large planets, the moon, SUN, and the interjection of asteroids and other cyclical features. Although there are thermal events accompanying these entities, they result from solid friction, and interference from Milankovitch cycles at locations- such as the Hurricane fault, Hf, and the edge of the Colorado Plateau, CP.
THERE ARE A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS REGARDING THE "TOO ACCURATE" CALCULATION OF THE AGE IF THE EXPANSION OF THE 256 M.Y. ASSOCIATION OF THE INDONESIAN ARCHIPELAGO AND ITS OUTWARD "LAND RIPPLES". BELOW IT IS RE-ANALYZED FOR THE EXPANSION RATE, SINCE THERE SHOULD BE "CHATTER" OR REDUCED TIDAL MOVEMENT WITH THE UPWARD MOVEMENT OF THE VULCANISM AND MOUNTAIN FORMATION. REMEMBERING THAT CONVEX BULGES INDICATE THE DIRECTION OF PAST AND PRESENT MOVEMENT, STUDY THE FOLLOWING GOOGLE PHOTO:
WHAT’S WITH THE ELLIPTICAL PRESENTATION OF SHEAR LINES IN ROCKS, TRENDS OF RIVER VALLEYS, ARRANGEMENT OF ISLANDS AND CONTINENTS, AND THE PRESENT MOVEMENT OF THE NORTH AMERICAN QUADRANT IN A DYNAMIC ELLIPTICAL PATTERN?
EXPLAINING THE QUESTION,
1. IT IS NOTICED THAT ON THE SMALLEST LEVEL, VOLCANOES OCCUR INSIDE ELLIPTICALLY-SHAPED BASINS (IN PAIRS TO DEFINE THE ELLIPTICAL SHAPE SEEN ON GOOGLE EARTH);
2. THE NEXT LEVEL- THAT OF THE BASIN ITSELF- THE BORDERING OR CONTAINED RIVER VALLEYS ARE ARRANGED IN ELLIPTICAL PATTERNS (NOTE THE SHAPE OF THE MISSOURI-MISSISSIPPI RIVER SYSTEM ON THE AR, IL, MO, and TN BORDERS);
3. A LARGER VIEW OF REGIONS ILLUSTRATES THAT SUCH FEATURES AS THE BASIN AND RANGE PROVINCE ARE ELLIPTICALLY ARRANGED- NOT ONLY FOR THE LARGER DIMENSION, BUT ALSO for THE INDIVIDUAL ELLIPSES OF TWO OR MORE MOUNTAIN CHAINS; and
4. AT THE LARGEST LEVEL, FOR THE AMAZON BASIN, AND THE SCRIBING OF SEAMOUNTS AND VOLCANIC ISLANDS IN THE PACIFIC AND ATLANTIC Oceans, THE TRACE IS AGAIN ELLIPTICAL (WITH GAPS, AS IT IS FOR ALL OF THE OTHER ARRANGEMENTS).
I have correlated these elliptical arrangements with the movement of the earth about the sun, in its yearly and 100k-year paths. Milankovitch has found that the climate on a multi-year cycle is related to the attraction of the large planets with the earth- creating an ellipse on a 100 k.year basis, and I have found that CRUST and WEATHER CELLS also are shoved in ELLIPTICAL PATTERNS. The EARTH is moved by gravitational attraction of the large planets away from a circular orbit; this rare arrangement occurs maximally when Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are in conjunction (oriented along a two-dimensional linear). This feature probably is influenced by Mercury and Venus also, but they represent a “FLY in the OINTMENT” because of the minor planets being closer to the sun than earth. The question remains: “Milankovitch explained the 100 k.year ellipse as being due to the periodic stretching of the circle of the EARTH REVOLUTION ABOUT THE SUN to that of an ellipse.” I have found that there is at least one larger ellipse- that of a million year ellipse- and that there is a hint of a 2 m.y. feature. This is tentatively correlated with the 2 m.y. Eltanin asteroid strike, but this doesn’t explain the older elliptical arrangement of the San Juan Islands (Mesozoic) or the later arrangement of north American trace in the Emperor Seamounts-Hawaiian Islands trace (post KT, following the dinosaur-killing event at the end of the Cretaceous).
It appears that there is a periodic elliptically-arranged entity of EARTH CRUSTAL FEATURES (thrust faulting, rebound, and lateral movement westward less for South America than North America), such that lateral movement creates shear of the landmass in large and small arcuate arrangements. This I have observed all the way back to the Cambrian, and by extrapolation, for everything from the 2 billion year time-AGE. The TIDAL MOVEMENT is 20km/m.y. (20mm/year), and this divided into 2 billion yields 10 exp 8 cycles, about the same as the multiplier of CRUSTAL MOVEMENT/ATMOSPHERIC MOVEMENT RATES.
This occurrence of ellipses laterally coincides with a smaller TIDAL MOVEMENT RATE, where the annual shift is less than 20 millimeters (less than an inch). Simultaneously, there is CHATTER of the crust, where CHATTER= 2nd derivative of acceleration, A, dV/dt.
“CHATTER”= d(Jerk)/dt= dJ/dt, where J= Jerk= dA/dt.
Is there a 3D “ringing” of the earth, which re-arranges the crust in elliptically-sheared patterns? Is it possible that elliptical arrangements are due to an inherent tendency of the EARTH’S CRUST to periodically shear itself? I will explore this possibility by analyzing case histories of known GEOLOGICAL FEATURES (REGIONS, RANGES, BASINS, AND UPLIFTS-RISES), where I can measure features in the field (circular cells and their diameters, circumferences, and shifts laterally, formation and layer thicknesses, and elevation changes) which will help understand the DYNAMICS of the processes involved. The goal will be to determine whether there are HARMONICS of the 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, and 512 million year cycles in multiples such as 40, 80, 320 and smaller fractions such as 1-80th-12,500 year and 1/40th- 25 k.y. (the precessional of the EQUINOX CYCLES).
