"CRACK" IN GEO MAGNET FIELD may be causing bird deaths
Been sleuthing around and found this on a weather site about an anomaly around the time the ARK. birds fell and died. Poster claims to be an
aerospace electro/mechanical engineer and so far this is one of the most plausible explantions I've read for the cause of the worldwide bird deaths.

Hi I am An Aerospace Electro/Mechanical engineer and live in Hot Springs Arkansas.
I would like to give you some information I have been following sense early December 2010
When I saw a news flash on yahoo about a crack in the northern geomagnetic field see the link below.

[link to www.nasa.gov]

At first I was concern so I started tracking Spaceweather now to see if there were any increase in solar activity but was surprised that the sun was calm, however I check this site daily up to today and only found slight elevations in the sun activity which also puzzled me.


So I starter looking at local anomalies that could account for such a reaction to the birds being affected and I found that different region have higher level of magnet fields and appear the Little Rock and Beebe area falls in one area that has a positive charge nanotesla field at 1000 feet elevation colored in red which would attach the negative charged solar winds electrons and ions. see link:

[link to pubs.usgs.gov]
other State Maps [link to crustal.usgs.gov]

Conclusion
The crack is rotating as seen in Auroral Activity Extrapolated from NOAA observations on the sun side of the earth were high energy particle enter the atmosphere and spread around to the dark side of earth and are distributed across the hemisphere then to space and create a snapping of magnetic field lines which can induce brief hi current and lighting. And as I recall we had a coronal hole and coronal ejection earth bound on the December 30/31 2010.
Sense the timing of the fire works may have masted the lighting and thunder it is very possible that this event and other similar die offs could have been caused by the Crack in the Geo magnet shield and localized in areas of hi absorpsion on earth.

Allway enjoy your work

Re: "CRACK" IN GEO MAGNET FIELD may be causing bird deaths
The magnetic field of the earth is not a solid object, and we dont get 'cracks' in it.

IF the magnetic field of the earth had any defects that would kill wildlife, it would at the very least take out satellites and probably kill power.

Maybe it's described as a crack for lack of a better word?

Looks like we may be onto something about these deaths.

CLEVELAND - They looked like newly developing thunderstorms, but they were not. Storms were well east of the Little Rock, Arkansas radar when the mysterious anomalies began to appear. Four times between 9pm, December 31st and 1am on January 1, these circular radar echoes popped up on NEXRAD Doppler radar, expanding outward and then fading away. All in about 15 to 20 minutes. What's more, each time, these anomalies developed in the exact same spot: over Beebe, Arkansas.

And that is one of the reasons that so many people have such abysmal understanding of science, because most of these concepts are dumbed down for people instead of people stepping up and doing a bit of learning.

The South Atlantic Anomaly is not due to a 'crack' in the magnetosphere. Had you read the link you posted, you would see that its due to the magnetic field contracting and bringing the radiation belts closer to the earth, not some crack. The radiation belts themselves are caused by charged particles being trapped in the field lines of the magnetosphere.

The fluctuations you are talking about are not cracks or breaks or anything akin to them, they are simply weaker spots. You could think of the magnetosphere as paint, and in some spots the paint is not as thick as in other spots, which allows more light (or in this case, radiation) through.

Mass die offs like this happen much more frequently than you would imagine. Most of them occur in more remote locations. Good explanation here:

I Read it. Extremely interesting - especially this part:

In 1961, Dr. Jim Dungey of the Imperial College, United Kingdom, predicted that cracks might form in the magnetic shield when the solar wind contained a magnetic field that was oriented in the opposite direction to a portion of the Earth's field. In these regions, the two magnetic fields would interconnect through a process known as "magnetic reconnection," forming a crack in the shield through which the electrically charged particles of the solar wind could flow. (Image 2 illustrates the crack formation, and Animation 1 shows how solar wind particles flow through the crack by following invisible magnetic field lines.) In 1979, Dr. Goetz Paschmann, of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Germany, detected the cracks using the International Sun Earth Explorer (ISEE) spacecraft. However, since this spacecraft only briefly passed through the cracks during its orbit, it was unknown if the cracks were temporary features or if they were stable for long periods.

Wow, this was discussed on a local weather blog a few days ago. I posted here on GLP about it but it got little notice. A local weatherman saw these radar images and posted a video of them. He thought it was the flock of birds itself being picked up on radar.

Go to www.katv.com and click weather and go to the weather blog. Scroll down to find the videos. I posted a thread about it on GLP called "Dead birds in Arkansas".
