• MH370 speculation has become excessive recently. Metabunk is not a forum for creating theories by speculation. It's a forum for examining claims, and seeing if they hold up. Please respect this and keep threads on-topic. There are many other forums where speculation is welcome.

Debunked: Exploration company "Georesonance" believes it may have found MH370

Coulter is correct on all counts. There is a huge difference between detecting the presence of some material and producing an image of an object comprised of it, and there is absolutely no reason to believe that the same means of detection (processing satellite image data) could be used to detect six different types of materials ranging from aluminum to kerosene, much less create an image. And that is after a more fundamental disqualifier that they would have needed to perform three data acquisitions, not two, in order to filter out all the noise (other moving and stationary objects with similar characteristics). It's all junk science intended for the hopeful but less informed. You might as well keep drinking ionized water, putting magnets on your fuel lines and storing your razor blades under a paper pyramid.

I am a bit weak when it comes to NMR (I work with protein crystallography, not NMR), but assuming for a moment that they could somehow measure the larmor precession in the plane, how large a signal could they get from several metric tonnes of aluminium?

I guess what we really need to know in order to pass verdict on whether or not they are using NMR is the following:
How large an amount of aluminium, copper, etc do they have to measure on?
How large a signal should they be able to produce? With EFNMR and with and artificial magnet field?
Related to the above, How sensitive equipment would they need and could they in any feasible way pickup a signal from under 700 meters of seawater?
Good questions, but more of a request-for-proposal than a casual estimate.

It can not identify anything deeper than one micron on land and has very limited penetration on water (wavelength dependent but ~30m is pretty much the max).
My understanding is that the sat is likely a former spy sat and they (Sevastopol) might even have full control of it. The orbit height was specified as 280km, so can't be Landsat, and sounds like spy sat territory to me instead of commercial imaging sat. If that is the case, the question is what could be possible for such a spy sat (designed for sub hunting for example), assuming full control and that it's likely some decades old if it is given to such use already.
See my earlier posting quoted above which is based on the complex index of refraction of water. Doesn't matter if it is a spy satellite, limitations on EM in the optical range are the same as Landsat. I suggest Landsat because of the large search area - Landsat has the largest footprint of all the moderate resolution satellites. But, since the company is lying about the technology, they might have fabricated the data as well. The intel community only uses satellite imagery to look for subs on the surface or near surface movement phenomena (bio-fluorescence, wake, etc.).

That was probably just a temporary changing of the guard as a different mob muscled in... that's how they do it in Putin's Russia.
True that Berezovsky was a mathematician. Bright Russians caught on quite quickly to how neoliberal finances work. Our news calls them oligarchs, if they're in Russia, job-creators if they're in the West. Catch the story about Steve Jobs in the NY Times today?

The latest from CNN... "Two Bangladeshi navy ships have begun searching the Bay of Bengal for traces of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but have yet to find anything, a commander said Friday."

Wow, I thought Georesonace had the size, shape, and location perfectly defined ;)
I also thought that they know very very EXACT coordinates so that there's nothing else to check than is there something at that exact spot or not. Instead it seems there are now several ships scanning some wider area. Surely if they can show the exact shape of a plane they have detected they also know exactly where they imaged it.

The point is that Georesonance is making claims that are patently false. The light detected by multispectral imagery does not significantly penetrate water (~30m in the UV-blue and only nanometers in the IR). If the object in question can not physically be illuminated then there is no possibility of the "resonance effect" happening. And, in fact, there is no such thing as this "resonance effect". If you could detect elements using optical light (UV through IR) there would be instruments on the market to do that. In order to directly detect and measure elemental compositions you need x-rays or laser ablation, and even then the phenomenon measured is not resonance. The common instruments to do this are X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) or Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS). Both of these require direct contact with the material being analyzed.
a) GeoResonance claims are by no means "patently false" else the discussion would be settled. You assert opinion, not proof.
b) Might you have references giving absorption data for LWIR or VLWIR?
c) Do you mean to say there's no such thing as nuclear magnetic resonance, or only that you haven't heard of it?
d) Re the "instruments on the market", should we conclude then that everything has been invented and no new patents will be granted? Of course the techniques we're discussing are not likely to be among those"commonly used", else there'd be no controvrsy.

I find incredibly amusing that even after all what was already posted here, that there are still people who go on questioning whether this or that technology mentioned by GeoResonance is possible or not. As if it was not sufficient knowing that the mastermind behind the company is a known hoaxer. Just to remind you of some of the theories and ideas spread by Vitaly Gokh (Виталий Гох), the man who is signed under most of the documents and diagrams related to this company:
  1. Mr. Gokh promotes a theory that the Earth is hollow, filled with hydrogen, deuterium, tritium, helium and other gases (http://gokh.net)
  2. Mr. Gokh claims the lunar core is composed of platinum and gold (http://gokh.net/model.html)
  3. Mr. Gokh also concludes that Mars is within 70% made of diamonds, kimberlites, platinum and gold (http://gokh.net/model.html)
  4. Mr. Gokh discovered 37 pyramids in Crimea. According to him, they were built 65 millions of years ago (far before the first humanoids), radiate some magic energy preventing fruits from rotting, contain mumified dinosaur eggs, together with human bodies, etc. etc. (http://www.archaeology.ru/ONLINE/Kovalenko/kovalenko.html, http://blog.a-theism.com/2011/12/blog-post_03.html, ...)
  5. Mr. Gokh knows about advanced underwater civilizations sending signals to us, and once helped Sumerians to rule the world. Besides others he reports light shows of this civilization also in the Bay of Bengal, so I suppose he may soon tell, it was this civilization that kidnapped the MH370 plane (http://gokh.net/stati/146-podvodnaya-civilizaciya-soobschaet-o-sebe.html)
  6. He has also some revealing theories about crop circles (http://gokh.net/stati/126-krugi-na-polyah-i-vse-chto-o-nih-izvestno.html)
  7. There are plenty of other amazing theories on his website (static electricity used in ancien Egypt, information technology used by Pharaons, ...). Just read through the articles on his website - it is better than Däniken.
  8. After his pyramid theory was debunked by serious scientist, he came with a new idea: he suggested that "the bottom of the Black Sea is the repository of the astral souls of the dead. Allegedly, hydrogen sulfide layer that begins after the 200-meter water column (that's true for the Black Sea, I believe), they are cleaned. Cleansing process is long and depends on how much negative energy the soul accumulated for the period of earthly life. (http://www.archaeology.ru/ONLINE/Kovalenko/kovalenko.html - last paragraph)
Now tell me one single reason why we should bother whether some of the 20 technologies they allegedly used to get their miraculous photos of MH370 in the Bay of Bengal really work or not?

As a prelude to my response, look at my disclosed LinkedIn profile and get a clue that I am an internationally recognized and peer reviewed published expert in the field of satellite and airborne remote sensing.

Point a: You are arguing for a logical impossibility. All I can point out is that the physics of the Georesonance science does not hold water. You are demanding that I PROVE it is false. This is the argument that all the scammers put forth. It is not logically possible to prove a negative as the response always is: "it might be possible but we don't know about it yet". It might be possible that witches fly on broomsticks, just because we know the physics of flying broomsticks doesn't work doesn't mean that there isn't some "way" that broomsticks "could" fly.

Point b: There are tables see: http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a312143.pdf.

Point c: this argument is irrelevant as the scam company is using satellite imagery not NMR

Point d: the "techniques" we are discussing are disclosed in Ukrainian patents in all their preposterous glory. Look back in the thread to see the nasty details. If the method made sense there would be instruments to exploit it, as there are for XRF and LIBS.

And this quote is totally misrepresenting the process - they were given the benefit of the doubt, the claims were followed to a logical conclusion using what people know of the limits of physics, and found to be wanting. It wasn't 'funny arguments' it was actual analysis.

I fully agree with you that the depth of the water is clearly a huge problem, no matter what kind of satellite they are using. If I remember it correctly they said the plane was supposed to be around 1km below the surface and whereas I lack the expertise on the subject, which you clearly have, for all that I know it certainly sounds pretty much impossible.

I'm just one of those who do not like to call something totally impossible if there's the possibility that I just might not know something that enables it anyway. And don't get me wrong, throw me with, say, some religious crap or homeopathy, and I will quickly call it bs. But then you also know that I'm pretty damn sure of my opinion and have good reasons for calling that. In this case my gut feeling has been to call their tech bs, but I prefer to sort of leave the door open as long as I don't feel I understand it enough or can trust the opinion of experts who, for instance, can point out some clear error or physical impossibility in it. In this case there have been some published expert dismissals, but it has been evident that they haven't really known what exactly has been claimed or even who really is claiming that.

That is why I have been trying to find out and make it known what those claims and technologies actually are, so that I can also know that the expert opinion isn't based on incorrect assumptions. This clearly isn't all about some small Australian company as the mainstream media still seems to think. There's good reasons to assume we are dealing with military grade capabilities, actual nuclear reactor, spy sat etc. If an expert (like you) states that assuming all of that, it's still impossible, then I have a good reason to trust it. And that seems to be the case now. And I truly value the possibility of getting an actual expert opinion here, and that is good enough reason for me for trying to do the kind of background work I can do to sort of make sure that the expert opinion is in the right context and the possibilities of misunderstandings are minimized. And I truly hope to see that kind of expert opinion being published by the media as well.

Yes, I am sure it is the same guy. Look for example at the patent document scan on the website of their Slovenian branch Vitava (http://www.vitava.si/home/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=52&Itemid=57&lang=en). It is Patent 13408A in the name of Vitaly Anatolovich Gokh. Vitava, on their slides describes the same process as a number of their other clones worldwide, including GeoResonance. And now have a look at one of the foolish websites of Dr. V.A. Gokh: http://www.vitaly-gokh.narod.ru/gokhr3.htm - it lists the exactly same patent 13408A as being his.

Yes, that should be definitely done. On page 4, there was member Bazzabazz, who told he was from ABC Media Watch and wanted to talk to me or to Mick West (I think David Coulter was not signed yet at that moment). I've sent him a PM, bud he did not answer. Otherwise, unless someone has a direct contact to the right person at some important mass media, we have little chance to get the report published.

Would you care trying to verify that theory?

We basically have very clear evidence scattered within this thread that exposes this whole thing and is easy for even mainstream journalists to verify. And I don't think it would be that boring a story that this whole thing traces back to someone who has stated pretty odd things...

I congratulate you on your professional success. I'm sure you wouldn't attempt to argue from authority, but rather let the cogency of your arguments demonstrate your expertise. To your other points:

Point a: You are arguing for a logical impossibility. All I can point out is that the physics of the Georesonance science does not hold water. You are demanding that I PROVE it is false. This is the argument that all the scammers put forth. It is not logically possible to prove a negative as the response always is: "it might be possible but we don't know about it yet". It might be possible that witches fly on broomsticks, just because we know the physics of flying broomsticks doesn't work doesn't mean that there isn't some "way" that broomsticks "could" fly.
I can see why you would assert that Georesonance science does not hold water, but on the other hand, simple assertion doesn't constitute proof against someone who disagrees with you. You're correct: to be completely persuasive, you'd have to prove a negative. This ambiguity is the very reason I'm maintaining an open mind on this issue. It would help if GeoResonance openly discussed their data and it's frustrating that they don't. But whether the physics of GeoResonance does or doesn't hold water is precisely the point under discussion, which can't be settled by statement. (As for witches on broomsticks, not having encountered any, I really don't think about them too much one way or the other.;) )

Thanks for this. The reason I asked for that is that slide 5 of http://vitava.si/home/images/documents/eng/know-how/poisk_public_eng.pps gave a frequency range of 10-60 THz (5-30 um) for "tight-beam" radiation. Wikipedia indicated that this was in an unattenuated atmospheric transmission band, which you might expect to be used for something like a military laser. Figure 3.6 of your paper likewise indicates a drop in the complex index of refraction in water in this range as well, so deep water penetration at these frequencies isn't totally out of the question. But its frustrating that there's little indication of even roughly how this "beam" is used.

Point c: this argument is irrelevant as the scam company is using satellite imagery not NMR.
Actually GeoResonance mentions "resonance that is unique to nuclei" on their website; sounds an awful lot like NMR. In what capacity is the question.

Point d: the "techniques" we are discussing are disclosed in Ukrainian patents in all their preposterous glory. Look back in the thread to see the nasty details. If the method made sense there would be instruments to exploit it, as there are for XRF and LIBS.
We'll have to agree to disagree here. IF Georesonance and brethren are onto something, it doesn't sound like it's been so widespread that commercialization would be expected.

I can approach your position only so far as to say that it's very unclear what GeoResonance claims to be doing, but in my case, frustration doesn't translate to negation, just suspended judgment.

I'm sure member's here would love to hear more about this, would you create a new thread for it? Go to the Science and psuedoscience forum and create a new thread there.

Do you have any relevent information on the techniques alleged to have been used in this case to add to this thread though?
I will start a new thread as you suggest. When I was in the mining business I was more familiar with remote sensing techniques and they were pretty incredible back then. That was years ago. I would imagine what is cutting edge today would be impressive. I've had a lot of experience in dealing with incomprehensible data and after a while you get a sense for what is signal vs noise. The GeoResonance guy's voice, you might say, had a truthful resonance and the data looked fine.

That will certainly be disputed here based on what has been investigated so far, so can you give any further details, or is it just a general opinion without looking closely at the claim?

Also I have a technology advisor from LM with a Q security clearance, have know him for 20 years and he agrees with Rich and claims NASA is just a front shop. Garry McKinnon named some of the ships and crew.

Why debate some article on some theoretical technique that has a couple buzzwords that sound sorta related to what GeoResonance claims when we can take a shortcut and look at whether it's even possible for them to get their hands on that much imagery to begin with.
fubaya, you've touched on an area that I've been thinking about, so time for me to post my thoughts. My current position (as a non-expert) on the (broad, underlying) science/technology behind the claim is that it MAY have some validity, although (like most) I'm still VERY, VERY sceptical. My position is, however, based on GeoResonance apparently having access (direct or via Sevastapol University?) to an ex-military satellite 280km above the earth that has the capability to take "special" ("multi-spectral"?) images, that can then be processed in a special way, including irradiation at the research nuclear reactor IR-100 at Sevastapol University! Indeed, as others have mentioned, Sevastapol Univ. does seem to be at the heart of the technology GeoResonance is claiming they used.
Furthermore, there are several other companies (e.g. GeoNMR) that claim to use the same/similar technology; and the presentation detailed on pages 30-33 (numbered) of this documennt, a 2008 Newsletter from the Black Sea Universities Network (originally provided by bume):

http://www.bsun.org/userfiles/file/newsletter/683fd2.pdf
does indeed seems to suggest that Sevastapol Univ. are most likely the ones doing all the work, in terms of image collection (?), preparation, processing and analysis. If this is the case, then either it's a (state-sponsored) scam by the University (if the technology is false); or the technology is real (although, perhaps, over-hyped) but GeoResonance's claims are false and they are just trying to boost their business profile.
If it's a scam by the University, would it be cheekily conspiratorial of me to go one step further and suggest Russian involvement to try and embarrass The West? ;)

For now, though, I'm going to assume that it is GeoResonance who is at fault here, and what I want to do is stimulate discussion a bit more around the other claims by GeoResonance, i.e. mainly the image gathering and processing work load, in order to "slam-dunk" debunk that area of GeoResonance's claim.
Let's start with what GeoResonance stated in their press release of May 1st:
http://georesonance.com/20140501 Press Release.pdf

and the press release from April 29th:
http://georesonance.com/20140429 Press Release.pdf


So, I have some questions/comments for members to get their teeth into:
1) if the technology is using an ex-military satellite at 280km above the earth (as, e.g., the diagrams describing the technology by Victor Gokh shows) that was tasked to search the area and the survey commenced on March 12th, how could they task the satellite to take images of the area on March 10th and then on March 5th? Can we safely assume that it is highly unlikely that GeoResonance just happenened to be tasking the satellite on March 10th and 5th to take images of the area where they say the plane is located. Hence, I'm concluding that they weren't using the ex-military satellite at 280km, but accessing commercial satellite images. Is that a fair assumption?
2) if GeoResonance was using commercial satellite images, does anyone have an idea of how long it would take to image an area of 2,327,000 km2? Can it be done in one day (i.e. March 10th)? Can it even be done in 19 days? Could they gather images from numerous satellites covering different areas? Why would any commercial satellites be taking images of the oceans in the area on March 5th? Obviously, DigitalGlobe would have been on March 10th, but not of an area of 2,327,000 km2? I understand that there are satellites that are used to measure ocean tidal movements, etc., but I believe they have quite a long orbit time, plus don't know if they also take images.
3) if the images were available (even if taken on different days over a period of many weeks), how many separate images would we be talking about to cover an area of 2,327,000 km2? Fubaya mentions 60x60km (for lower orbit satellite - the ex-military one?). This would give 646 images. But, how many would it give for a higher-orbit satellite?
4) how long does it take to process an individual images (i.e. prepare, irradiate, process, analyse, etc.)? That's a question I can't answer, but I would imagine that it would be several hours, although it could possibly be done in batches of images. If I recall, I think in the links various members have given, mention is made that it takes in the order of weeks to survey even a relatively small area. So, surely, there's no way the process could be sped up in order to process images for an area in excess of 2million km2. Ignoring this for the moment, just as an academic exercise, in order to work out an estimate (as a starting point) I did the following:

a) assume batch process of 10 images (guesstimate, no science behind it) with sequential processing (i.e. if have a 3-step process, then whilst batch 1 is undergoing step 2 processing, batch 2 is undergoing step 1 processing, etc.), since it reduces the processing time considerably
646 images = 65 batches
b) assume 3 step process - sample preparation, irradiate, sample processing (Kirlian photography, etc.), with each step taking an hour (since it makes it easier for me to work out how long it will take to process the 65 batches!) if my calcs are correct, that would require 67hrs processing time
c) If I recall correctly, the supposed technology requires processing an image for a particular element, and repeating the process for each element to be looked for - is that correct? Therefore, the process would have to be repeated for 7 "elements" - the images here:
http://dmnewsi.com/tag/georesonance/
mentions Al, Ti, Cu, Ni, Fe, Cr, and Hydrocarbons. [what is interesting about the images in the above link is that there are separate images for "Engine alloys (Ni, Fe, Cr)" and "Steel alloys (Fe, Ni, Cr)". But, if they are detecting elements, how can they produce two different images, when both images are for the same elements? Are they also able to detect (and distinguish between) metals with different elemental compositions?]
Hence processing hours = 67x7 = 469
d) Let's be even more generous and say it only takes an hour to analyse all the data (they've got super-computers, right?)
This gives 470hrs total time taken to do the work (NB: I haven't included any time to collect together all the images in the first place)
e) Being generous again, let's assume it's a 24hr operation
Therefore, 19days = 456hrs​
So, putting aside the technology, I'm concluding that it would have been physically impossible to carry out the work GeoResonance claims to have done, in the time-period they claim to have done it in - AND, that's for 60x60km size images, AND only for the images from one of the surveys. Therefore, just based on the logistics of doing the work, I would say that GeoResonance are lying, pointing to a company trying to raise its business profile (for a technology that MIGHT work??) by making an outrageous (and shameful) claim!

Finally, as an aside, how likely would it be that a company based in Australia could have cooperation with, and access to the technology of, Sevastapol University during the Crimean crisis? And, I wonder what would be the estimate of the cost of the whole operation that they claim to have self-funded! Incidentally, Anti-Spin mentioned that GeoNMR is based in Kiev. If that's the case (and they're still in business), then if they were relying on use of the research reactor in Sevastapol, I think they might be a bit screwed now!
[Wow, InterpreDemon, that PDOS website is cool! :cool:]
P.S Sorry for the long first post - I do tend to waffle a bit! :) ...and apologies if the posting format is wrong in any way (still getting used to it :confused:)
 
Strangelove (AKA Sellers), I posted several pages ago the mathematics behind the impossibility of their claims, first in the number of film sheets they would need to process with their reactor, then the fact that they would need to take data from THREE different date samples instead of the two they claimed (you need one before the ditching and two afterward in order to filter out the noise... ships and aircraft in motion), followed by the fact that typical satellites have a return time of 16-18 days, meaning it would be 45 days before they could begin to work on the last data set.
