Where to go and how to survive the next pole shift and ice age

Video series 4, Part 5B, covers where to go to survive the next Polar Reversal and Ice Age. It also covers the 50 years before the reversal, what happens during the reversal and the years after the geomagnetic reversal and Nova. This information will give you and...

When will the next pole shift and solar nova occur

Douglas Vogt of Diehold Foundation presents his research about the timing of the next Polar Reversal (Geomagnetic Reversal) and Nova. He presents 11 reasons why he believes the Reversal will occur in 2046. "I present this information because I want some people...

Greenland's fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier is growing again

A new NASA research shows that Jakobshavn Glacier, which has been Greenland's fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier for the last 20 years is now flowing more slowly, thickening, and advancing toward the ocean instead of retreating farther inland. The...

Evidence for an extreme solar proton event around 660 BC

An increasing amount of research indicates that solar storms can be even more powerful than measurements have shown so far via direct observations. Researchers believe that society is not sufficiently prepared if a similar event were to happen now. The researchers...

Study: Aleutian tsunamis occur more frequently than previously thought

A new study published recently in Geological Society of America Bulletin suggests Aleutian tsunamis occur more frequently than previously thought. The new findings indicate that the recurrence interval for large tsunamis generated in the eastern Aleutians ranges...

Second meteorite impact crater found under Greenland ice

A new study published this week in AGU's Geophysical Research Letters suggests a second meteorite impact crater was found deep under ice in northwestern Greenland. The discovery comes just several months after scientists identified another similar crater beneath...

Extratropical volcanoes more efficient than tropical in terms of hemispheric cooling

An international study published this week in Nature Geoscience argues that explosive extratropical volcanic eruptions, those taking place in mid and high latitudes, have a much stronger influence on climate than was previously assumed. In recent decades,...

Study: Ultra-slow earthquake indicates deep crustal movement near Istanbul, Turkey

GFZ Potsdam scientists analyzed a large transient strainmeter signal recorded along the southern shore of the eastern Sea of Marmara region in northwestern Turkey after M4.4 earthquake. The strain signal lasted about 50 days, indicating deep crustal movement near...

Comprehensive simulation of a solar flare

A team of scientists has, for the first time, used a single, cohesive computer model to simulate the entire life cycle of a solar flare: from the buildup of energy thousands of kilometers below the solar surface, to the emergence of tangled magnetic field lines, to...

Tornado Alley shifting east

Meteorologist Dr. Harold Brooks appeared on AMHQ recently, speaking about Tornado Alley and his recent study about spatial trends in United States tornado frequency. While it's evident that tornadoes are shifting east, the reasons why this is happening are still...

'True polar wander' and Earth's ice ages

Rice University geophysicists have determined Earth shifted relative to its spin axis within the past 12 million years, which caused Greenland to move far enough toward the north pole to kick off the ice age that began about 3.2 million years ago. The study is based...

Large asteroid impact crater found under Hiawatha Glacier, Greenland

An international team of scientists announced a remarkable discovery of one of the youngest large asteroid impact craters on Earth. The crater is buried under 1 km (0.62 miles) of ice in a remote area of northwest Greenland. The finding was published in the November...

Two-step energy transfer in Earth's magnetosphere

Scientists have obtained in situ measurements of Earth's magnetosphere, demonstrating a phenomenon that's long been thought to happen but not yet directly been shown: energy is transferred from hydrogen ions to plasma waves, and then from the waves to helium...

Slowdown of North Atlantic circulation caused sudden cold spells lasting hundreds of years

A new study from the University of Helsinki in Finland reports that sudden cold spells lasting hundreds of years took place in the middle of the warm Eemian climate period, about 120 000 years ago, as a result of the slowdown of the North Atlantic circulation....

Study: How Sun influences lightning and thunder activity on Earth

Japanese researchers have taken the first steps to understand how the Sun's rotational cycle influences lightning activity on Earth. The answers were found in diaries dating back to the 1700s. "It is well known that long-term - centennial to...

Deep subterranean connection found between Kirishima and Sakurajima volcanoes, Japan

A study published recently in Scientific Reports presets geodetic evidence for interconnectivity between Aira and Kirishima magmatic systems in Japan. This is the first study to confirm that radical changes of one volcano in southern Japan were the direct result of...
