Electric discharge experiment 2012(material redeposition)

There are some video's on youtube channel dahlenaz07
They show the setup potential with dry material and a saltwater saturated piece of cardboard.


Several different experiments are included in the images
all being powered by an air ionizer.
Clay soil was either crushed sifted and dry or saturated with a saltwater solution and then partially dried.

Many video segments have been taken with photos at each intermission

Material transfer setup
The two plates are not of common charge to each other.
The trench plate in the background is in common with the discharge probe where material was collecting.
During the electric wind phase material might have been aggravated enough to travel to the other plate but i am not sure.
Arcs were forced by real close proximity, they were very central where material was already cleared.

Initial comparison photos are images:
straight trench(strt-trnch####) and post-transfer####.
3D images have been assembled for comparison and have distant-sequential filae names (xxxx12834.13011.jpg).
These are not to be viewed with both eyes simultaneous through a box viewer.

See Directory for other images too

Such as
These two shots were taken at nearly matched angle and lighting
and are the Before and After shots to get some evaluation started.

I have not yet seen evidence of dust transfer of any noticable amount in the videos.

See this image for what i think is behind sloping-ridge formations,
However, i do have other pieces of evidence that point directly to post discharge deposits. Of course there are these in the directory and there are those at the bottom of this page. But in recent experiment a long standing hunch of mine receives numerous levels of verification on several details that are being dismissed without explanation despite experimental evidence. The image below shows many features that match planetary examples, at it's ball-end two scoops of material were torn from the dish, like jamming your fingers into the dirt or flipping chips out with a fork.

I proposed this dynamic long ago when i saw radial details in the interiors of craters at full scale and in experiments.
The probable electrical mechanisms are being confined to just sustained arcs and that doesn't make sense when examples show other options. Granted, the other does have its role but we are talking about planetary bodies interacting to cause huge features. The process behind the image above shows two things, trench size is proportional to probe size and the stresses of the interaction can remove large scoops of material as a singular mass,, see the video ,, watch it for yourself if you dare to claim that the scientific method rules and guides you. The two scoops that came out also validated something i've been suggesting about crater chains, they progress as scallops if the probe speed is slow, not as a wandering arc, but whole-sale departure of material. You might also see what gets left behind near the central path and at the rims. These features are already locations where material escaped the excavation but there is also evidence that material accumulated at the boundaries and might retain the potential to attract other material during subsequent disturbances.

Hanging fingers from crater rims were reproduced in CRT experiments with passing monitors in close proximity for material transfer during interaction.
Presentation 2007 ICOPS top window ,bottom of page,
showed an occasion when material 'was' deposited in a manner similar to that which is located at the rims of Vales Marinaras and some craters. Represented in the four images are three passes during the pass-over monitor experiment.

This is the first pass>>>>>>>>> and that is the second(i think)
And this link takes you to the third which messed up some of the previous features.

And do by all means remember that the other monitor,, which had the material on it (which was transferred with each pass and discharges), also showed signs of the interactions making the pattern i call negative-relief spiders.

A features almost exactly matching these is seen on Mercury at Proctor Crater in the Caloris Basin.

Image first seen in this article

There are numerous other images from the 2007 experiments which match the Mercury Spider,, see ICOP 2008 poster for a couple examples.
