The Gravitational Power Originating the Earthquakes and the Dansgaard-Oeschger Catastrophic Events

Maurizio Michelini


The planetary Gravitational power, derived from the pushing gravity in the frame of the Micro-quanta paradigm, opens new insights on the physics of solar planets. It has been observed in the past that the infrared internal emission from the giant solar planets is much higher (7-10 times) than the emission of bodies cooling in space. This agrees with the predicted Gravitational power, which in the case of the Earth results about 60 times the classical heat flow estimated through the temperature gradient within the continents. This bias points out once again the problem of the high terrestrial seismic activity that can hardly be attributed to the thermal stresses produced by the classical heat flow crossing the crust. The new Gravitational power is able to explain both the seismic activity and the oscillations of the surface temperature, such as the rapid warming named Dansgaard-Oeschger events, which are recorded from 11.500 yr up to 45.000 yr B.P. in the Ice-cores obtained by drilling in Greenland and Antarctica. In the long term these temperature oscillations combine with the Earth’s radiation cooling to originate the Glacial Eras lasting about 100,000 years.
