Back to Relativistic Physics

Playing with Atmospheric physics is fine, but really not as entertaining as relativistic physics. On the hydrogen blog I started Phonon Versus Photon thing. Doing the Oh! Antarctica and Carbon Dioxide the not so Well Mixed Gas are going to require some proof of the Relativistic Heat Conduction theory.

I suck at proofs! So this will be a major challenge. I have toyed with a new model of a photon where angular momentum change corresponds to a small but finite change in rest mass. Real mass, reguardless of how small, is not high on the theoretical hit parade for photons. Relativistic mass changes in a mixed gas environment would help explain the radiant to conductive relationship as relative velocities and directions would increase the likelihood of a photon finding the right energy hole in a molecule. Nitrogen has a close vibrational frequency which can be used in lasers, but is highly improbable at atmospheric temperatures and pressures.

Then a few hundred Petajoules/second with peta^n collisions and possibly peta^m absorptions could make things happen. The most likely region to provide some observational data is Antarctica, which has the crappiest data quality. With the new polar orbit satellite, that could change.

One thing that is very interesting in the Antarctic is the surface flux readings. What appears to be interferance from the southern magnetic pole could be related to the weak magnetic properties of oxygen at low temperatures. Liquid oxygen has known magnetic properties so very cold O2 enhancing conduction is much more believable than the nitrogen amplification. Unfortunately, most of this is probably obvious to the people working on this data, so I would be pissing up a rope if I start at the wrong point. It would be a much easier approach, though. Which could help avoid the revised photon model.

Anywho, with some reasonable indication that RHC is acceptable, I may be able to move to the 4C boundary and the conclusion of The Coming Ice Age.
