The unusual presence of the element barium in the atmosphere now appears to have been affirmed through the methods of spectroscopy. The results of current research are no sufficient to establish an analytical basis for the formal investigation of radical atmospheric changed induced by relatively recent aircraft aerosol operations. This Carnicom work further confirms the recent findings that have substantiated the unusual presence of an alkaline salt form in the atmosphere, as revealed through recent pH tests conducted around the country.
It has been deduced and established from earlier Carnicom work and research (see earlier papers ‘A Case for Testing’ ‘Eight Conditions’, ‘Drastic pH Conditions’, ‘pH Test Alert’, ‘20 Times’, and ‘pH Test Results’) that a case for testing the atmosphere, water, and soil for alkaline salts exists. Testing of rainwater samples across the United States shows an approximate twenty fold increase in the level of hydroxide ions found in rainwater in the year 2000 versus a baseline period from 1990-1999. This paper discusses an experiment where electrical current applied to rainwater samples results in a chemical reaction that proves the presence of an electrolyte (salt form).
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.
This paper discusses a preliminary model developed in order to estimate the length of time required for ‘normal’ contrails to dissipate. The model developed agrees extremely well with historical behavior and observation of contrails. Conclusions that result from the study of this model include the expected rate of water vapor based contrails, and that the rates of dissipation for normal contrails are based on the size of ice crystal particulates and amount of solar radiation. A further conclusion drawn is that if an observed contrail does not conform to the model, it is likely that the material of emission is not water vapor.
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.
This paper makes the case for increased testing of pH levels in in rainwater by US citizens. At this point, there are indications that significant alterations in atmospheric chemistry have occurred due to aerosol operations. A pH test from Santa Fe, New Mexico yielded a fairly significant deviation from what was expected and is presented as an additional reason for rainwater testing.
A logical case has been developed within this article to substantiate the need for environmental testing of barium or barium compounds in our water, air and soil based on the progression of the following:
1)Meteorological studies of aerosol particulates being introduced into the atmosphere
2)Information from a highly credible source
3)Chemistry analysis of barium and barium compounds
4)pH testing of rainwater for alkalinity/acidity
5)Collection of physical samples after aerosol spraying
6)Testing of collected samples against a hypothesis that these samples are barium based
7)Solubility and equilibrium considerations of barium and barium compounds
8)Environmental testing (water, soil, air)
This paper shows comparisons of average measured rainfall pH levels across many different areas in the US during the years 1990, 1999, and 2000. There are small differences in average rainfall pH levels across the nation when the years 1990 and 1999 are compared for each region measured, but the year 2000 shows significant increases in pH levels over both years 1990 and 1999, with some increases upwards of 73% in the year 2000 over earlier 1990 levels. This depicts a large change in atmospheric chemistry across many regions of the US in 2000 over earlier years.
