The influence of the MOON and SUN’S ATTRACTION for the earth are listed in ORDER of IMPORTANCE:
2. Moon attracts the CRUST VERTICALLY monthly- augmenting the sun’s attraction during the NEW MOON, and offsetting it during the FULL MOON. This results in CONTINENTAL LATERAL SEPARATION, since the NET ATTRACTION HORIZONTALLY is WESTWARD by about 30mm/yr during full moon, and 20 mm/yr during the NEW MOON. FOR EACH VERTICAL MOVEMENT, THERE IS AN ASSOCIATED SIDEWAYS, or lateral-horizontal, SPREAD of the 3D BULGE. An ELLIPSE RESULTS, with 12 sinks and RISES occurring around the ALMOST-CIRCULAR horizontal PATTERN; over a LUNAR CYCLE, there occur 13 full moons alternately, so that 13 rises may occur in some GOOGLE EARTH PRESENTATIONS.
3. The MOON-SUN COMBINATION causes an EARTH WOBBLE; this is best visualized by referring to the CENTER OF MASS of the EARTH-MOON SYSTEM, where the earth and moon gyrate around this point in the earth’s mantle, resulting in a rotation around this FULCRUM monthly. Similarly, the earth wobbles referenced to the sun. These gyrations causes the water in creeks to SHIFT from bank to opposite bank, monthly (called MEANDERS). This MOVEMENT OCCURS WITH EACH CYCLE, but requires KILO-YEARS TO FULLY EXPRESS the 3D Bulge. This bulge is not a standing wave, but it is almost stationary- moving westward 20.48mm/year in the WESTERN HEMISPHERE (do not expect this result in another hemisphere or quadrant). CONSEQUENTLY, CONTINENTS REMAIN ALMOST STATIONARY, due to the offsetting of solar tides by the moon. NA, SA, and North AFRICA EXPAND LATERALLY by 1 mm/year, and have enlarged from a point in an ocean basin to bulges near 4096 km DIAMETER (laterally, less vertically due to EROSION and the GREATER FORCE NECESSARY for a RISE COMPARED TO A LATERAL SHIFT)- SINCE MOON'S GRAVITY EXERTED ITS INITIAL ATTRACTION, at 4.096 b.y. ORIGINATION.
4. VERTICAL MOVEMENTS have concomitant HORIZONTAL (LATERAL) SHIFTS; Observe a water wave- it rises and falls, while simultaneously rotating the water column ELLIPTICALLY (SPREADING SIDEWAYS with individual WAVE WIDTH about TWICE the HEIGHT).
5. CORIOLIS ROTATION ACCOMPANIES all MOVEMENT, whether vertical or horizontal- this is CCW RISING in the Northern Hemisphere, and CW sinking. This is accompanied by ANALEMMA DEVELOPMENT- which creates FIGURE 8 PATTERNS in CRUSTAL SHEAR, in the LOOP CURRENTS in the sea, and in ATMOSPHERIC CLOUD EXHIBITS.
nNtice the Analemmas (Figure 8s) for both the HURRICANE FAULT above, and the SOUTHERN OCEAN below. ANALEMMA ORIENTATION is generally N-S within the 40N-40S latitudes, and E-W OUTSIDE:
Earth tides are similar to Ocean tides, having a WAVE NATURE, but which is smaller in height. Whereas open ocean tides' WAVES are about 1/2 to 1 meter in height and 1-2 meters in width, EARTH TIDES WAVES are 1.0 centimeters high and 2.0 centimeters wide (nearly an inch) in the Northern Hemisphere- this has a vertical/horizontal ratio of 50 to one, comparing water and rock waves. The INDIVIDUAL WAVE VERTICAL/LATERAL RATIOS of two to one are fixed by the GRAVITATIONAL VERTICAL ATTRACTION/LATERAL (HORIZONTAL) SPREAD of all forces in the SOLAR SYSTEM. This is not obvious, until you notice that many everyday features are ELLIPTICAL, when viewed in 3 DIMENSIONAL SPACE: Mt. Erie beside Lake Campbell, and the island shape in the Lake below, ELLIPTICAL VERTICAL CANYON WALLS in Zion HP-Virgin River, and lakes viewed from above.
CALCULATION of INTERVAL TIME of FORMATION of a CIRCULAR FEATURE, such as a VOLCANIC CRATER:
Whereas ocean tides come and go daily, earth tides occur on a 100,000 year basis. Consequently, they may not be noticed daily, until you observe that springs stay open even when you think that they should “dry up” (they result from the yearly shear of more than 1/8th inch horizontally), that your water pipe set in your concrete slab has sheared, or that a river MEANDERS from side to side over the course of a few years (this can be related to the OSCILLATION about the BARYCENTER, ANNUALLY or to the MULTI-YEAR MOON CYCLE).
Hot springs more well-known to youth are the "boiler" (below) at the Washington City, UT location just north of the crossing of I-15 freeway by the DEVELOPING 1 m.y. (initiated) lateral fault- which is 20 km from the Hurricane Fault (20.48 km in the northern hemisphere is the time necessary to emplace a CONCENTRIC ARC about the further east Hf). THIS IS THE SITE OF THE NEXT VULCANISM in the area! Photo was taken at a "GIBBOUS" MOON, and exhibited a 70F temperature: see "upwelling" warm water, with copious Calcium-loving edible water growth (water cress):
WHERE’S the PROOF?” My geological hiker buddy inquired! Even though he had asserted that Virgin Anticline was “LARAMIDE” (actually 2 m.y. AGE) with a wave of the hand! How to undo something so engrained in GEOLOGY TERMINOLOGY, where emotion is involved? Below is a GOOGLE EARTH MAP, showing that the LUNAR-SOLAR CYCLE has created at least 12 discernible volcanoes over a 2 m.y. time period. The HARMONICS of the yearly 12-13 FULL MOONS has continued to develop this pattern in a REGULAR CYCLE. The pattern includes Sullivan Knoll basalt in my back yard- which has to be dynamited to eliminate it (consequently I saved it for ADMIRATION, not for growing trees). When two SHEARING ROTATIONS CROSS, as they do at the Virgin-Hurricane Fault INTERSECTION, HEAT is generated and the present PAH TEMPE HOT SPRINGS and dormant VULCANISM is created!
Or somewhat WORSE, introduced ELECTIVE,
Terminology from the GREAT DEFECTIVE-
Which becomes the NEW OBJECTIVE.
How to revert to SCIENCE TRACK,
Which leaves us taken most ABACK?
Best to take a road now black,
Improvement for some future hack.
Sometimes there occurs a warm spring, found by searching at the INTERSECTION of TWO SIGNIFICANT RIVERS or creeks:
