I should add that Moore has stated in his section on 'Sphere gap discharge of Capacitor' That "these sparks are not just a sudden one-way flow of large current: They are oscillatory." He describes them as a "rapidly reversing current that sends out electromagnetic waves, which travel at the speed of light. Heinrich Hertz, in Karlsruhe Germany in 1888, first demonstrated this phenomenon, and it was a major breakthrough. It verified Maxwell's prediction of these waves as an outcome of his theoretical analyses. At some distance from the discharging setup, Hertz placed a loop, closed except for a small spark gap, and he had sparks jumping that gap. For more on electromagnetic waves, see John R. Pierce's book Electrocs and Waves."

Does this apply to all discharges?

In some of the low energy discharges that formed features in the CRT experiments there were instances when material would be removed from the surface at one moment and then be redepositted from the probe, my finger, back to the surface in the next. I point this out only to coax discussion on multiple aspects of what might be thought of as a single discharge. There may have been a response to this on the previous forum. I'll be looking. d...z

Short recap. Tesla built a Z Pinch Machine. He discovered Impulse Radiant Longitudinal Electric Energy in the process. This Radiant Electric Longitudinal wave could transmitt DC over space. It generated a Neutrino pressure wave and more represented star light. It did not need magnetic induction and it was not restricited to the inverse sqaure of the distance law. The rays neither diminished with the inverse square of the distance nor the inverse of the distance from their source. They seemed to stretch out in a progressive shock-shell to great distances without any ap­parent loss. Under further test as seen below he described it as a Corona or Whitefire. In effect, Tesla had managed to interrupt a high voltage direct current several thousand times per second. In doing so, he had discovered a way to completely separate electrostatic energy from current impulses. Tesla found it possible to produce millions of electrostatic volts by this method without any current. He discovered that the shape of the conical secondary capacitors to be important so geometry played its role. He discovered electrostatic resonace with his test and experiments.

He found that the transformative abilities of these smooth copper coils were maximum when the coil mass equaled the mass of the impulser's conductive copper strap. It did not matter how thin the coil windings were. The equality of copper masses brought maximum trans­formative effects. When this equal mass condition was fulfilled, Tesla said that the coil-capacitors were "in resonance". Electrostatic resonance. White discharges from each of these free ends had very different char­acteristics, indicating the unidirectional flow. Electropositive terminals al­ways appeared brush-like and broad. Electronegative terminals always ap­peared constricted and dart-like. He began placing these "secondary" coils within his "primary" impulser circuit. The strap, which connected his magnetic arc to the capacitors, formed the "primary". He made necessary distinctions among his Transformer com­ponents. Few engineers actually appreciate these distinctions. The "primary" and "secondary" of Tesla Transformers are not magnetic inductors. They are resistive capacitors. Coil-shaped capacitors! Tesla Transformer action is elec­trostatic induction.

This could be the necessary mechanism behind planet scarring.

IN this enhanced picture of Messenger you will find some craters you will appreciate. :)

Many craters that appear on top of other craters -- and so surely have formed more recently -- appear here as bright with bright rays that include a slightly blue tint, indicating that soil upended during the impact was light in color. A few craters, such as some in the huge Caloris Basin impact feature visible on the upper right, appear unexpectedly to be ringed with a dark material, the nature of which is being researched. MESSENGER continues to glide through the inner Solar System and will pass Mercury again this October and next September, before entering orbit around the desolate world in 2011.

Save for the central region these remind me of low energy corona discharge in a circular conductor as seen in the second image at this site.


Would you be refering to the material that has accumulated or the areas absent of material? Comparing the feature with the corona itself seems like it may need some further discussion on exactly what happens during the discharge.

I'd like to point attention back to this image introduced by Stefan.
http://www.para-az.com/2200_cut_b-150sc.jpg

When a discharge through or to a material occurs there seems to be a number of stages or phases leaving different features or characteristics that lead to features such as the accumulation of material. In the case of these dual-monitor experiments, one pass produced a set of features on each surface. The features that show some change were the crater-like features, their rim-fingers changed slightly. Since one surface is discharging to the other, repeat discharge at the same location seems to not occur. d..z

http://www.electric-spark-scars.com


I agree that there appears to be phases of the discharge process. I was referring to the the areas absent of material. Specifically the 'radial spokes' at the circumference resembling the 'radial spokes' of a low energy discharge around a circular conductor. These 'radial spokes' remind me of solar plumes. The individual 'spokes' seem to be electromagnetically 'compressed' material as ionization of the material "pass charge to areas of lower potential'. When considering 'multi-phase' characteristics it's interesting that many of the 'radial spokes' also appear to cross the circular circumference. As if there are two dynamics which occur at the edge. One being radially outward from center, the other a circular 'compression' of the material actually defining the circumference.

Image

The observational similarities above would seem to indicate that the low energy coronal discharge in a circular conductor may exhibit, or highlights, 'one phase' of the discharge process. Ionization of the surrounding air around the conductor accompanied by the 'passing' of charge to the region of lower potential via 'arcing'. The circumference 'crossed' by those 'arcs' would seem to be an electromagnetically 'compressed' edge also resulting from the passing of charge but as a result of current 'sheeting' action. The hierarchical scalability of electro-plasma dynamics would seem to indicate that Anthony Peratt's "cylindrical Birkeland current sheets" in relation to Supernova 1979A would be applicable.

-current 'sheeting' forming the the outer circumference
-with the central region being a "bipolar remnant" appearing to flow, 'gather' or be compressed inward like like with Marklund convection
-electrostatic coronal discharge or 'arcing' (described as "streamers" by Peratt) forming the radial spokes

Image

"A solid beam of charged particles tends to form hollow cylinders that may then filament into individual currents. When observed from below, the pattern consists of circles, circular rings of bright spots, and intense electrical discharge streamers connecting the inner structure to the outer structure." - Anthony Peratt, Holoscience

I had gone around looking for pics of electrostatic discharge after reading this thread and when you said that you passed two monitors in close proximity to produce the patterns the following photo seemed appropriate:

Image

The photo also seems quite appropriate in helping to dispel inappropriate notions of planetary and stellar "collision" with regard to modern cosmological assumptions.

Taking the left side of the image and rotating it seems to speak to the dynamic of large scale Birkeland current interaction with the sun. If you look closely you can see the 'arcs' (streamer) stemming from the main current channel to the circumference where the 'plumes' (beams) appear in abundance. The 'touch down' point' of the main current channel would then apparently leave the electromagnetically compressed "bipolar remnant".

Image

This also has it's relationship to the vortex:

" ... because here the vortex and its anti-vortex work against each other. In the inside the expanding vortex is located and on the outside the contracting anti-vortex.On vortex is the condition for the existence of the other one and vice versa." - Faraday or Maxwell- Konstantin Meyl

The central, or main, high current density 'channel' would be the 'expansive inner vortex' and the much wider circumference would be the 'contracting anti-vortex'. The invisible 'walls' of each vortex being the result of current 'sheeting' and the pattern left in the material being a 'down the barrel' formation. The photo of A.D. Moorse's book 'Electrostatics' appears to be no different save for wires providing the central current path. The elongated vortex 'tube' (both inner and outer) of current path being the longitudinal component.
"Our laws of force tend to be applied in the Newtonian sense in that for every action there is an equal reaction, and yet, in the real world, where many-body gravitational effects or electrodynamic actions prevail, we do not have every action paired with an equal reaction." — Harold Aspden

Maybe the ionisation is what explains the formation of the light-toned salt deposites in the soil.
Although mainstream askes for water interaction, maybe there is another way?
The question is what happens geologically on a mineralogical scale?

Bright Material on Crater Floor (PSP_006673_1600)
Credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona
http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_006673_1600
This image shows part of a crater wall and floor, where the floor is covered by dunes and distinct regions of bright material. The bright material stands higher than the rest of the floor suggesting that it is more resistant to erosion than surrounding materials.

It is possible that more and more bright material will be exposed over time; why the material is bright is unknown. The material might be evaporites, that form when salt water dries up and leaves behind salt deposits (the evaporites).

Also in this scene is a crater with a ridge running up to its west (left) side. The ridge is lighter and might be evidence that water flowed through it, bleaching the rocks as it went. The water might have cemented the soil, causing it to be more resistant to erosion and high standing as seen today.


Wallrock and Light-Toned Layering in Candor Chasma (PSP_001390_1735)
Credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona
http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_001390_1735
While the canyon walls that define Valles Marineris appear dark and blocky, the interior of the canyons can sometimes be filled with light-toned rocks that appear layered.

This HiRISE image shows the two geologic units in Candor Chasma, one of several canyons that make up Valles Marineris. At the center of the image is the wall rock that appears as a linear hill running east-west and composed of spurs and gullies.

Larger meter-size boulders can be resolved by HiRISE and indicate rock units consolidated from loose sediment that break down to produce these boulders which then roll downhill.

The light-toned layered deposits are visible in the lower portion of the image. They appear brighter than the wallrock and also have prominent layering, which is best seen near the bottom of the image where there is a steep exposure and dozens of layers are revealed.

Dark debris covers the layered deposits along this cliff face and forms debris aprons as material is shed downhill. The processes that emplaced the light-toned layered deposits are still being debated and include volcanism, eolian (wind), and lacustrine (formed in a lake) origins. HiRISE images combined with multispectral data from CRISM (also on MRO) should help narrow down the possible origins.


Clay Minerals in Nili Fossae (PSP_007358_2015)
Credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona
http://hirise.lpl.arizona.edu/PSP_007358_2015
This false color RGB image shows the colorful diversity of hydrated minerals in Nili Fossae.

This region is near one of the proposed landing sites for the upcoming Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) rover. Though this view is not the same as what the human eye would see, it is clear from this image that there are many varieties of color that are attributed to variations in the minerals and rock types in this location.

The bright, light-toned bedrock is highly fractured and has been covered by reddish dust in some regions. There are also dunes that are forming in low spots around the knobs, or mesas, of rock. The CRISM instrument has also acquired images over this region and has shown that the rock in these mesas and knobs contain clay minerals, many of which contain iron and magnesium. These clay minerals also contain water.

One theory to explain the fractured rock is that some water was removed from the clays, causing them to contract, or shrink, and this caused the rock to break. This process is similar to the one that causes cracks to form in mud as it dries on Earth. However, there are other possible ways to form fractures and scientists are currently trying to understand which of these processes caused the fractures observed in the clays on Mars.

Solar, and Stefan, You sure make this all worth while. "Electromagnetically compressed" is exactly what was churning in my mind. The geochemical considerations are certainly in need of thorough consideration. Electro-Chemistry, if i can call it that, is a part of Moore's emphasis, havn't got to that info yet.
Your contributions are tremendously valuable. In my mind, this front page stuff.

Be sure to read Wals newest item on Mercury's Mysteries, it has a wealth of detail to mix with your input.

vortex storms on mars

Just liked to add some of it here:



These are some large rotating features in the marsian athmosphere. A lot more features can be found on the MSSS-site but these had the rotation in them. The black and white pictures are Voyager pictures but I can't remember where I found those.

But the smaller features are also interesting of course. A lot of them have been discussed in the various Thunderbolts-pic-o-the-day. The dust-devils and their streaks:

Dust devil track (ddt) density was evaluated using The Generic Mapping Tool (Wessel and Smith), to produce isochronal and gridded color maps, based on 2000 (7 m/px or better) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) narrow angle (N/A) images selected using stratified random sampling. Ddt were counted in each image and the density (number of ddt/km2) was calculated. Ddt densities were gridded using 30 minute grid spacing to maximize detail while preserving general trends and then mapped according to season: Ls: 0 through 180° (northern spring and summer) and Ls: 180 through 360° (southern spring and summer). The peak ddt density occurs in the southern hemisphere (30 ddt/km2) centered at 30° W, 60°S. The northern hemisphere peak is 12 ddt/km2 and centered at 160°W, 60°N. Both hemispheres have a band of increased ddt density centered at 60°. The southern band correlates with albedo changes noted by Geissler (2005), suggesting that dust devils could be responsible for the observed albedo change. Both bands of elevated ddt density correlate with bands of increased thermal inertia; areas mapped as less dusty exposed bedrock. This relationship suggests that dust devils could contribute to exposing the bedrock by removing overlying dust. Both the norhtern and southern band of elevated ddt density correlate with moderate Thermal Emissions Spectrometer (TES) derived surface temperatures found in a narrow (~5° band) around 60° (N and S) and not the hottest surface temperatures (as might have been expected). If we use ddt density as a proxy for dust devil activity then [u]dust devil activity is greatest when the temperature gradient is greatest, and not when surface temperature is highest.[/u]

Also the atmospheric behaviour around and on top of Arsia Mons are also quite interesting:

Quote:
On this particular day (the first day of Spring), the MOC wide angle cameras documented an unusual spiral-shaped cloud within the 110 km (68 mi) diameter caldera--the summit crater--of the giant volcano. Because the cloud is bright both in the red and blue images acquired by the wide angle cameras, it probably consisted mostly of fine dust grains. The cloud's spin may have been induced by winds off the inner slopes of the volcano's caldera walls resulting from the temperature differences between the walls and the caldera floor, or by a vortex as winds blew up and over the caldera. Similar spiral clouds were seen inside the caldera for several days; we don't know if this was a single cloud that persisted throughout that time or one that regenerated each afternoon. Sunlight illuminates this scene from the left/upper left.

Quote:
In some regions, the repeated event may be a dust storm that appears every year, like clockwork, in such a way that we can only wish the weather were so predictable on Earth.

One of the repeated weather phenomena occurs each year near the start of southern winter over the martian volcano, Arsia Mons. The volcano is located near 9°S, 121°W. Each year, just before southern winter begins, sunlight warms the air on the slopes of the volcano. This air rises, bringing small amounts of dust with it. Eventually, the rising air converges over the volcano's caldera, the large, circular depression at its summit. The fine sediment blown up from the volcano's slopes coalesces into a spiraling cloud of dust that is thick enough to actually observe from orbit.

The spiral dust cloud over Arsia Mons repeats each year, but observations and computer calculations indicate it can only form during a short period of time each year. Similar spiral clouds have not been seen over the other large Tharsis volcanoes, but other types of clouds have been seen.

Shown here are MOC wide angle views taken during three of the four Mars years that MGS has been observing the planet. The first image was taken on the first day of southern winter in 2001. The second image is from late southern autumn in 2003, and the third image shows that the phenomenon appeared a little bit earlier in late southern autumn in 2005.

The spiral dust cloud over Arsia Mons can tower 15-30 kilometers (9-19 miles) above the volcano.
The white and bluish areas in the images are thin clouds of water ice. In the 2005 case, more water ice was present than in the previous years at the time the pictures were obtained. For scale, the caldera of Arsia Mons is about 110 kilometers (~68 miles) across, and the summit of the volcano stands about 10 km (~6 miles) above its surrounding plains.

Quote:
Both pictures are composites of MOC red and blue wide angle images, and both are oriented such that north is up and east is to the right. Arsia Mons and the other large Tharsis volcanoes commonly develop afternoon orographic (i.e., topographically-controlled) water ice clouds at this time of year. The equatorial Tharsis volcano, Pavonis Mons, is also under a deck of water ice clouds; it is located toward the upper right corner of the left, lower-resolution image.

Sunlight glints off the dusty surface and the clouds and aerosols in the atmosphere, producing the bright diagonal streak located just southeast (lower right) of Arsia Mons. A water ice haze is seen on the left side of the lower-resolution image. The dark oval to the northeast of Arsia Mons, as noted above, is the shadow of Phobos.



As an extra I would like to add a nice movie of the dust content of the athmosphere during a few years. Note the strange event more at the end of the movie when a dust-raising starts up north then moves down to Valles Marineris and then splits in to three distinct events moving south. Curious! I don't know why I have added the magnetic map, but who knows Smile :

When you watch the movie, note the value of "Ls," short-hand notation for solar longitude. It is a measure of season, with a value of 0 through 360. 0 is at the beginning of northern spring. The dusty season is Ls 180–240, southern spring. Watch in July 2001 when a regional dust storm exploded to global scale.

Here is two of the many treasures from Wal's recent article. If this same effect can be demonstrated in the CRT experiments then those features could become more persuasive in a scalable sense toward the planetary features.

"Ford also noted in his paper that the pattern of rays around the conspicuous lunar "rayed" craters is tangential to the rim of the craters. This is an impossible coincidence for impact cratering. If the craters were formed by impact, the rays would be directed radially from the center of the crater. However, this strange detail is explained electrically because the rays trace the path of electron streamers rushing from halfway around the Moon to satisfy the discharge, which is impinging inside the crater rim and not at the crater center. "

Another highly supportive statement leads up to a related detail about rayed features.

"There are differences in arc scarring effects depending upon the polarity of the discharge. An arc to an anode (positive) surface tends to stick to one spot and cause melting and uplift with relatively subdued features. An arc to a cathode (negative) surface tends to jump about, forming many circular craters with sharp features, rim craters and chains of craters. Electrons scavenged from the surface surrounding the main crater may form ‘rays,’ and sinuous rilles or channels. "

Here too might be an opportunity to use the CRT experiments to demonstrate the larger electrical dynamics.

The dual-monitor experiment may lend some clues, in that, material was removed from one screen leaving negative spiders and was deposited to the other as circular features with fingers around the rim.
In looking at the spacing between the spiders, i've noticed that they, for the most part, do not overlap or encroach on each others space. Some do almost touch but the absence of intersection seems to point to the discharge of only the surface around them. Can it be?

I read that article again and also ended up centering on the second quote you posted in relation to your CRT discharge experiment(s). You may be interested in a quicktime video at "ARCS AND SPARKS PHOTO GALLERY ARCS AND SPARKS PHOTO GALLERY".

The series of 6 photos (fifth from the top) shows the position of the cathode and anode in the Hot Anode Vacuum Arc (HAVA). The film, linked below that photo montage, is rather large at 11mb (56k warning), but a worthwhile download to Wal's quote. And your experiments.

The anode (positive) is on the right side of the progressive snapshots and undergoes "melting and uplift" as it forms a "plasma plume". On the left side of the snapshots is the cathode (negative). When you watch the movie you'll see not only the cathode arcs 'jumping about' the copper cathode but you will also see the "streamers" (lightning) that I think produce the "‘rays,’ and sinuous rilles or channels." - despite the relative small size of the cathode surface. When the cathode's 'jumping arcs' occur 'below the plane of it's surface (on the sides of the cathode in the video) I guess that would correlate with planetary 'subsurface lightning".

Image

Image

From the results you've posted when you pass you CRT's in close proximity in comparison to the Hot Anode Vacuum Arc process it appears that, yes, 'it can be' that you've rather successfully demonstrated planetary EDM, arc scarring, electrostatic coronal discharge, and 'down the barrel' patterns that reveal the multiple phases of the electro-plasma dynamic. The only difference between your CRT's and the same results on planets is a matter of distance. A rather small concern for a 'relativistic particle beam'.

OP "upriver"

Abstract:
Experiments showed that an electric arc in helium between graphite electrodes (I=60–120 A; L=3–6 mm; P He=1–500 Torr) may exist in two different spatial-temporal modes: (i) a stationary mode with axisymmetric current channel and (ii) a nonstationary mode with two helical channels emerging from an anode spot and rotating at 10–20 kHz around the side surfaces of cylindrical electrodes.

Re: Electric discharges to dusty CRT match planetary features

In a book by R.A.Ford called 'Homemade Lightening' he mentions cold light
and describes an experiment with a vacuum bulb 'the electric egg' that
produces a discharge with the type of geometry similar to auroral fingers,
evenly spaced. I think the image is from a book 'electricity and magnetism'
A. Guillemin 1891.

It may not really relate to surface features but it seems to be worth a
mention.

Another item from the Encyclopedia Britannica: dictionary of art and science.

http://books.google.com/books?id=YKIMAA ... n#PPA66,M1

Much is said of surface features on page 66. Of particular interest is an alternative material to lycopodium powder for displaying polarity characteristics. The most effective material is a mixture of Flowers of sulfur and red lead. "In the process of sifting, the red lead powder becomes positively and the sulphur negatively electrified, and the powders seperate themselves. The sulphur colours positive regions yellow, and the red lead colours negative regions red. The result is very striking....."

My big question is, Where would these materials be found? d...z
