Good morning, K. -
There is no difference between Black Flag and Black Sabbath. Both are rotten.
But then that is just my opinion.
Let us return to your legacy.
First off, you are not looking very hard for accounts from the areas you mention.
The New Madrid Earthquake was studied in modern times from the 1960's on, including the written accounts.
Mississippi has an archive center, and I assume those accounts should be available through them.
You can also check the St. Louis libraries for their holdings.
Your problem lies in this source:
It makes this unreferenced statement:
"Quite a few studies link increased probability of earthquakes with increased solar flare/flux output."
"Other possible mechanisms are possible electromagnetic field interaction with the rotating metallic core of the earth or a piezoelectric expansion and contraction of rocks in the earth."
My understanding is that it is piezo-electric effect, as mentioned:
But the absolutely certain demonstration of your legacy as being confused lies here, as I mentioned before:
"The basis for these impact studies are found in the energy relationships for terrestrial craters, both from impact and from nuclear explosion, and are well documented by Baldwin (1963). The results of these experiments can be stated as a simple cube scaling law where crater diameters are proportional to the cube root of the energy of the explosion. (*) For one such explosion (Teapot-Ess) a 300 foot crater was produced by a 1.2 kiloton nuclear device. The relationship for this blast is:
D = kWl/3 (equation 1)
D = diameter of the crater in feet
k = proportionality constant
W = energy of blast in ergs (1 ton TNT = 4.16 X 1016 )
Solving for the proportionality constant:
300' = k \/(1.2 X 103)(4.16 X 1016)
k = 8.1 X 10-5
(*) More exact relationships can be found using exponents other than 3.00 (Baldwin, 1963). The authors feel, however, that simple cube scaling will suffice for a first approximation.
This relationship (D = 8.1 X 10 5 X W 1/3) has been used for impact craters and for craters produced by other nuclear devices and appears to be legitimate. This expression, then, can be applied to the Carolina Bays to determine the size of object necessary to produce one average bay and the size of object required to produce all bays, assuming fragmentation. The energy, W, can be calculated by assuming all the kinetic energy to be available for the blast. The cube scaling law then becomes:
D = k(l/2MV2)1/3 (equation 2)
1/2MV2 = kinetic energy."
THIS IS CALLED A SCALING LAW.
There are other versions of it, using other units of measure.
(I find it useful to convert energy to Hiroshima blasts, because people can understand it then. I did that math before my stroke. See my book for the scaling law I used, and the method of Hiroshima conversion, which is standard expert practice now.)
You know the diameter, so you can calculate the energy involved in moving that mass of dirt.
Then figure out the atmospheric effects of that much energy. 1.8 atmospheres lead to rupturing of the lungs and death.
Add deaths due to IR light burns.
As I told you earlier, and this is without exact calculation but simply by rough diameter comparison,
you are a victim of the "Electric Universe" idiots, who have not only turned part of your brain to s**t and wasted your time, but also turned you into a person who completely wasted not only my time but the time of everyone else here you've bothered here with their nonsense.
So stop it.
Q. E. D.
By the way, what is "kalopin"?
If it is one of the herbal blends that claim to be "legal marijuana", that is a load,
as some of them cause psychotic breaks and birth defects.
Willie Nelson: "Do you know how much condoms cost in the 60's?"
Young person: "No."
Willie Nelson: "I don't either. We didn't have to use them."
