Recent results from examining rainfall samples using methods of crystal chemistry are indicating substantial levels of metallic particulates within these rainwater samples. The analysis of the aerosol operations by a combination of methods repeatedly results in considerable attention being given to the elements of Group II of the periodic table (e.g. – magnesium, calcium, barium). The crystalline forms primarily found in these rainwater samples and documented with microscopic pictures is that believed to be magnesium chloride. This gives an indication of the existence of ionic magnesium within the rainfall sample. A description of the method used to create the crystalline forms shown in the attached pictures is provided here, with discussion of the polarizability and deliquessence attributes of these samples.

This paper discusses the statistical significance of the measured startling changes in the hydrogen ion concentration in the clouds, precipitation, rainfall in the years from 1990-2000 in the United States. These atmospheric changes are correlated directly with the presence of sustained and extensive aircraft aerosol operations since the beginning of 1999.
This paper outlines the 20 fold increase in the concentration of hydroxide ion concentration in the atmosphere of the United States. Recent and preliminary pH test data from across the nation indicates that this increase has happened when comparing baseline data from 1990-1999 data with that of 1999. This significant change in a relatively short time frame has major implications for both the chemistry and biology of the nation and the planet at large.
Further exploring the need for increased testing of rainwater for pH is the subject of this paper. Eight conditions for identifying components of aerosol particulates are presented as hypotheses that if proven true will help identify these particulates being salts and trace metals such as barium and strontium.
