Many Christians wonder about the ice age. In this scenario, annual ice layers would be on the order of metres. At any rate, he talked about the seasonal layers in the ice. Return to text How long does a coral reef take to grow? Millions of wooly mammoths once lived around the world, particularly in extremely cold places.
This is despite ample demonstrations that these things do not need vast time periods. Seely superficially analyzes the main methods of counting annual layers. Secondly, it is presumed that the variations in temperatures are correlative to summer and winter variations. However, when one steps back and questions the unspoken starting assumptions and allows the parameters to vary by the full range available, completely different consistent results can be obtained. Since the ice sheet is formed by the accumulation of snow year after year, by drilling from the surface down through the ice sheet, dating why we drill our way back in time.
The peak is due to the eruption in of Tambora, a volcano in Indonesia. This would usually mean we need to find a low elevation site, but it must also be a site where there is no melt. This is possible because of the large precipitation rates in Greenland and the preservation of the annual effects. Your whole story is nothing more than imagination.
- It is like numerical analysis in which a first guess is required to begin and then successive computer iterations change the first guess somewhat to arrive at hopefully the correct answer.
- Glaciers are swallowing planes up there as well, just not as fast or as deep, smaller ice fields.
- The ice and impurities hold information about the Earth's environment and climate at the time of deposition.
- There is no evidence that the ice layers going down for several thousand years were formed for any other reasons than those we know to be in effect today.
- Antarctica is the coldest, windiest, highest and driest continent on Earth.
- We know what we see now, and many extrapolate backwards from that.
One thing that is not mentioned in this article is the composition of the dust. If these evidences are found, direct information on conditions following the Flood would be available to us. But historical volcanic events are not known beyond a few thousand years in the past which provide any certainty to the calculation of age. First of all, thank you for the link to it. Furthermore, he only partially understands the climatic differences between the uniformitarian model and the creationist Ice Age model.
The earth warms again and the ices melt, leaving what is left on the poles. This was an ice age period. Thank you for finding this one, Dire Puppy. To their disappointment, the huge bomber was crushed and mangled, world of beyond worthwhile salvage.
Do the same experiment with the whole apparatus in a freezer, which would mimic the situation with the planes, and it does not work. What are we to make of these data? Another point is why weren't the heavier Bs deeper in the ice if pressure was the result. It took the two of them many years, much money and several failed expeditions before the first real clue came. Reply to Helen from gallo It is unscientific when you propose those other explanations without evidence.
How are ice cores dated
These short warmer periods are called inter-glacials. Conductivity shows an annual cycle and is higher in the summer snow than the winter snow. Yes, the number of layers indicates many tens of thousands of years. These bubbles are actual samples of the atmosphere up to thousands of years ago.
Rocks Ice Cores and Bill Nye
The Creation Answers Book. It amazes me that you feel freely qualified to propose answers to questions where you aren't. Response to Helen from Joe Meert It amazes me that you feel freely qualified to propose answers to questions where you aren't. An alternative model of recent glacier formation following the Flood described in Genesis will be suggested.
Thus, to examine the sulphate derived from volcanoes, the sea-salt sulphate needs first to be accounted for. The article mentioned sun light also but that could only account for several feet until it was blocked out. Because it is warmer in summer and cooler in winter, and provided the snow layers are not too disturbed by wind, the delta value can show annual cycles.
A question of starting assumptions
The root of the problem is the uncritical acceptance of the uniformitarian paradigm. However, the planes had to be abandoned where they had slithered to a stop. Don't attack individuals, denominations, or other organizations. Which could also mean it got blown there in snowdrifts during windstorms.
You are here
Yes, those not in Christ hate God and that which He revealed to us. Once the accumulation rate is calculated for each layer, the depth and age for each layer in the ice is calculated by integrating the annual accumulation downward from the surface. Missoula Flood Controversy. This shows the importance of where we start. You see, if one does not presume long ages, many rapid storms in a time of fluctuating temperatures and world upheaval can account for what we see in that graph.
To assume, without evidence, that any other cause is reasonable, is irrational at best. If so, how many were there? Therefore the pattern is upset from the outset.
The lost squadron
Do you know if ice core dating is accurate. Thus the snow has accumulated year after year for thousands of years and, with time, dating during is compressed to ice to form the Antarctic ice sheet. He must have misinterpreted my statements because such constraints on annual layer thickness do determine the general annual layer thickness within certain limits. Mr Brombley's insight quoted at the end of the article is an excellent example of pro-actively countering the evolutionist die-hard's warped hatred of God!
But I do think it should be noted. Hydrogen peroxide is created in the atmosphere by a chemical reaction that requires ultraviolet light. What is does is just reinforce what I already know my Lord has taught me!
However, if you had read what I wrote, you would have seen that I never postulated only one storm, nor did I attribute everything to Noah's flood. This corresponds with the rapid rise in temperature which melted the ice. In regard to each annual layer counting method, much could be written to show that Seely misunderstands the methods. Thus, it is a logical starting position from which to create our worldview. How can a catastrophic flood model and the one storm per layer you have to invoke account for what can be explained very simply as seasonal variations in hydrogen peroxide?
In fact, there are good reasons to believe that the ice cores are revealing important information about conditions following the Flood of Genesis and the recent formation of thick ice sheets. Volcanic eruptions are useful to glaciologists as a check on the other ice core dating techniques. The Law Dome ice core is at a location where the snow accumulation is much higher than at Vostok. Before I begin, I want to mention that the dating and the article are done with the presupposition of both long ages and not only uniformitarianism but gradualism.
Ice cores vs the Flood
It is unscientific when you propose those other explanations without evidence. The Greenland ice sheet averages almost feet thick. Thus, measurements of hydrogen peroxide dissolved in the ice also provide a good annual cycle indicator. What we see is mostly seasonal or postulated as epochal, but that does not mean we are right in that conclusion regarding how things used to be or were at one time.
- Return to text Hayatsu, R.
- Return to text Wieland, C.
- If we were to assume the ice sheet has been accumulating at this rate since its beginning, it would take less than years for it to form and the recent-creation model might seem to be vindicated.
- The amplitude of the annual oscillations slowly decreases relative to other factors, and historic markers are fewer and farther apart.
- So if the aircraft had indeed moved through the ice, they would all have been found in the same nose-down position.
Ice Core Dating
Does it show high or low amounts of volcanic material? It has already been seen that the delta value is related to air temperature when the snow was deposited. It is true that the pressures involved would not cause the planes to descend through the ice but there is a simpler and more visual way to determine whether this has happened or not. Then, to the far left of the graph, a rapid rise in temperature again as the dust settles down and the temperatures and thus the pressures have also settled.
