Science: a personal view point by Dr Chris Barnes.
Home for all kinds of other science: http://drchrisbarnes.co.uk
outdoor hobbies such as Hill Walking and Gardening has meant that I have probably
observed changes in our skies that others simply take for granted or haven’t
even realized have happened.
Over the last decade, and living under a busy
air-lane, I have become personally fascinated with the changes in aircraft
contrails and the evolution of a whole new family of cloud that I will describe loosely as ‘cirrus-aviaticus’ or aircraft cirrus. Aircraft cirrus is formed when
contrails do not dissipate. Under certain physical conditions of atmosphere and
plume temperature and with certain plume and atmospheric chemistry contrails
are capable of persisting for many hours. Such effects are not new and were
first noticed over the
However, since aircraft can now fly safely
closer together whilst avoiding wake vortices by means of various tracer
injection methods other changes are also apparent, please see the following patent:
Lewis , et
Systems and methods for tracing aircraft
Systems and methods for tracing aircraft
vortices. One method includes directing a tracer from a first aircraft into a vortical flow generated by the first aircraft. The method
can further include detecting a characteristic corresponding to the presence of
the tracer directed into the vortical flow. Based at
least in part on the detected characteristic, the method can include directing
the flight of the first aircraft, or a second aircraft following the first
aircraft, or both.

The possibly of closer aircraft to aircraft spacing
(and injection of tracers see detail of patent) encourages
the potential for a sort of ‘polymeric’ growth of contrails into cirrus aviaticus. The
position jumps and height changes of aircraft employing AVOSS and AMDAR systems
COMBINED possibly also results in often peculiarly looking quantised and
patterned patches of cirrus aviaticus.
has led me to understand that cirrus aviaticus could
potentially do the following
research has further led me to question if
any of our weather is ‘natural’ anymore and has further led me to discover
that some countries in the World regularly use large scale weather and climate
modification in a proud uncensored manner.
However, sadly when I have found and referenced links to scientific
publications and organizations conducting this type of research in the
countries which do not censor weather modification; the following techniques
Seeding by rocket or aircraft ( these are old technologies and can be used for rain
enhancement or hail suppression)
Common seeding agents are Silver Iodide and Dry
Ionisers ( these are used to make it rain in dessert
areas by attracting cloud nucleation particles)
Other forms of ENMOD (
electronic modification using ground or satellite based microwaves
and/or ionosphere heaters
be used in conjunction with modified contrails to form artificial weather fronts for jet stream
have supplied three detailed links where you can read about this in far more
detail. I have no idea how long the
links will survive.
My worry is
that if too many people/countries round the World master this technology they may
squabble over it and we could end up with a scenario of ‘Weather Wars’
changes could be made which would dupe a public into believing this was all
down to CO2 in order to tax us all stupid.

SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION ON CONTRAILS/CHEMTRAILS
Fact; The chemtrails ‘scare’ began in the
World Wide! The author does not believe in biological theories or little green
men theories, but was for some 18 months persuaded to look at other aspects of
the scare viz a viz
poisonous metals etc. Months of painstaking research lead to some interesting
Probably up to 95% of all so called chemtrails are simple
relatively harmless aircraft contrails; they look different simply because of
new types of aircraft engine and fuel.
contrails are still somewhat chemical in nature containing greenhouse gases,
chemical and particulate pollutants similar to those of a car gasoline or
Contrail shapes, patterns and persistence cannot adequately be explained by
present Contrail prediction algorithms or weather forecasters based on
temperature pressure, humidity, dew point and ice super-saturation alone, some
serious chemistry and physics beyond the scope of even many Met Office cloud parameterisation experts has to be taken into account –
this discrepancy and the inability of many so called experts to give proper or
adequate explanations probably leads to a lot of the crazy conspiracy theories
present Author has made empirical Research and extensive literature searches
which can now for the first time ever properly debunk many of the contrail
myths and conspiracy theories.
About 5% of all persistent contrails cannot be explained – these are probably
the ones connected with weather modification and/or new experimental/ military
aircraft technologies. Living close to a military airbase, the author has made
some interesting observations of hypersonic vehicle trails and purpose- made
photochemical smog. Observations of rain busting, storm quenching and rain
causing chemtrails using hygroscopic materials have
also been made. Observations of the
devastating micro-climate effect of contrails has also been made –forget CO2
this could be much worse!
Q. Why do
Contrails sometimes appear when they shouldn’t i.e. disobey prediction
and why do they spread
their formation is influenced by engine efficiency, ionising
radiation and electric fields and prediction algorithms do not take this into
account. Some of the ionising radiation comes from
the sun some could come from Gamma Ray Bursts.
Some of the electric field comes from the aircraft itself some from the
natural atmosphere. Water can take on ordered structure like crystalline ice in
the presence of electric fields, this structure is further modified by
crystalline materials known as NATS ( Nitrogen acid trihydrates
) which form on ice surfaces changing its super- saturation only under certain
geophysical and space weather conditions
The author has proven a direct correlation between periods of heightened
solar activity and the appearance of spreading persistent contrails which would
seem to contradict prediction algorithms.
There may be a threshold of CCN for spreading. The author’s findings
have support in the Scientific Literature

Q. Why are
their more contrails than before?
ANSWER: Air travel has increased.
Many more aviation systems and meteorological experimental flights also occur
3. Q. Why do contrails take on exotic
This is due to wake turbulence combined with new engine and cooler exhaust technologies.
It is also due to noise reduction technologies.
It is also due to NAT formation.
It is also due to jet stream winds and mountain waves and Kelvin
4. Q. Why
do contrails show patterns and on off patches that sometimes spread to make
clouds? Why these clouds are are starting to look similar in many parts of the World.
patterns can be caused by wake vortices and wind shear also by World Wide AMDAR
routing and Wake Turbulence avoidance systems like AVOSS because using AVOSS
aircraft can fly closer together enhancing the chances of coupling between
dissipating contrails. In these systems aircraft sometimes make quantised jumps of 2000 feet in course and height which can
cause on –off patches. Amdar routing calls for as many 3D intersections as
possible, where civilian planes are insufficient private transport and military
planes can be used in special ops. 3D
Intersections from the ground can look like 2d cloud patterns up above and
jumps in height from regions where condensation occurs to those where it doesn’t and vice versa can
cause the tell tale spreading of groups of contrails into aerosol clouds
similar to but not quite the same as natural cirrus. http://www.metoffice.com/research/interproj/amdar/http:/www.ll.mit.edu/AviationWeather/avoss.html http://www.nasa.gov/centers/langley/news/factsheets/AVOSS.html
is also more on some days because Space Weather might favor NAT formation. Some Scientists, even some at NASA, think
that its OK for Aircraft Engines to emit more NOX because this replaces Ozone
depleted by photolytic Halogen reactions. So aircraft fleet engines may be
presently tuned up to give lots of NOX. However NOX
gives NAT and NAT Clouds have not been properly parameterized yet, hence all
the aerosol research and weather research ‘chemtrailing’
NOX also produces ground level ozone, up to
40% more than normal near some of the World’s major airports. At some temperatures and locations in the
atmosphere NOX depletes ozone, the arguments as to the Chemistry and Physics are
5. Q. Why are there more planes some days than
Aviators are still designing technologies; some days extra special ops. Flights
are flown. This may involve parallel line flying when wake turbulence is being
investigated. Also meteorologists are
very interested in aerosol clouds for climate Research and possible weather
control /climate remediation they sometimes fly special ops. These ‘research
flights’ often have curved, snaked or even circular flight paths.
6. Q Are ENMOD and Contrails connected?
Answer: Probably not directly but indirectly
or inadvertently yes. Some Contrails
have a climate forcing effect. Some have a cooling
effect. It all depends on the ice crystal shape and size and the height in the
Water vapour in
the wrong places in the atmosphere inadvertently changes weather as well. One does not have to be a genius to speculate
that once all this is parameterised contrails will
most certainly be used routinely for weather/climate control. The author suspects that such
experimentation is already happening.
7. Q. Are HAARP and Chemtrails
Answer (some HAARP science is published but some remains classified)
directly but possibly indirectly. For
instance on days when contrails spread to form pseudo –cirrus clouds, transient
patches can often be seen labelled by some observers as ETC’s (Earthquake
transient Clouds). These clouds contain complex interference fringes rather
like water on the surface of a ripple tank with several diffractions they are
seen to switch on and off within less than 2 seconds in some cases. A U.L.F
wave or EZ Electro-acoustic wave from the ionosphere interacting with gravity
waves at the UTLS is a possible explanation. Such waves could be seismically
generated or could possibly arise from ionosphere heaters, or could arise from
space weather changes, or could arise with interactions of power systems and
mass transport systems on earth with the ionosphere. See also the author’s work
on the phenomenon known as ‘the Hum’.
Clearly if there are more contrails then there is likely to be more
‘cirrus like’ NAT cloud, hence more chance of naked eye observation of ETCS. More over a diurnal appearance of ETCS is
observed which could originate from the natural electrojet
or be due to shifting height of ionospheres reflective layers.
Author: Unfortunately a lot of the most
useful links have been cut by person or persons unknown – I leave this to the
8. Q. Are there metals and
particulates in contrails, could they have increased?
ANSWER; Yes but
only due to more efficient fuels, aero engines get wear and tear just like car engines
there are bound to be small quantities submicron particles. There are also globules of soot known as PAH
(Poly aromatic hydrocarbons).
Modern, more efficient, jet fuel will cause
more of these, by freeing off their adhesion to turbine blades etc. According to the patent specification on
wake turbulence avoidance there is also the potential to use bio degradable
smart particles as tracers. It is
unknown if this is being done. But it is interesting to note that a US Document
‘owning the weather by the year 2025’ refers to the development of ‘smart
9. Is there Ethylene dibromide in
JP8? The precise formulas of some of
these jet fuels are hard to come by. There are certainly
Organophosphates in small quantities and
have been recent scares about cabin crew safety, in two specific types of
For example, JP8 100 is now used in
some civilian as well as military flights it contains dispersant molecules
which may cause more particles
in the plume and more spreading of
the plume, but means the aircraft cost less to service!
10. Q Does
the sky look different these days?
certainly Yes, more so since about 1997
