    Abstract: This article presents the result of the authors' work on the development of the model of the origin and motion of the Earth’s continents from the beginning of their formation to the present state. The paper describes gradual formation and movement of continents formed from the liquid substance and climatic changes that occurred after the change of ... Show More
  • A Possible Cause of the Siberian LIPs: "Collisions Aggrgation Effect" of an Aerolite Impact

    Published: 9 April 2018
    Abstract: The authors believe that the main reason for the formation of the Siberian LIPs may be the nonlinear "Collisions Aggregation Effect" caused by a meteorite impact in the Falkland Plateau crater or Wilkes Land crater, and the correspondence of the Falkland Plateau crater may be better. As a result, the authors have reached the following conclusions a... Show More
  • Thermal Enhancement on Planetary Bodies and the Relevance of the Molar Mass Version of the Ideal Gas Law to the Null Hypothesis of Climate Change

    Published: 13 April 2018
    Abstract: Presented here is a simple and reliable method of accurately calculating the average near surface atmospheric temperature on all planetary bodies which possess a surface atmospheric pressure of over 0.69kPa, by the use of the molar mass version of the ideal gas law. This method requires a gas constant and the near-surface averages of only three gas... Show More
  • On the Surface Independent Signals Within the ENSO Events

    Published: 13 June 2018
    Abstract: By analyzing the two types of El Niño Southern-Oscillation (ENSO) indices, i.e., the Central Pacific (CP) type index and the Eastern Pacific (EP) type index by Ren and Jin (2011), this study finds that the low correlation between the two types of indices by some previous studies should be reconsidered. Then based on previous ideas of the unified Ni... Show More
