Subject: Scientific Study Of UFOs

Following up on recent posts about how science could and should
study UFOs, here is what I outlined in The UFO Evidence, Vol. II

I thought I had it on a floppy disc, but if so I couldn't find
it. In the original I argued the case more fully, so this is a
bare-bones outline.

From The UFO Evidence, Vol. II (Scarecrow Press, 200), pp. 645-647,

I reported the "Elements of a Scientific Study." Condensed here,
they are:

I.   Adequate funding for scientific personnel and
     administrative staff infrastructure.

II.  Systematic gathering of both historical and current
     information at one or more collection points.

III. Quick reaction teams equipped with instruments to conduct
     timely field investigations.

IV.  Re-establishment or establishment of new reporting networks
     similar to successful ones of the past.

V.   Cataloging, documenting, and data analysis of evidential
     types of UFO reports:

a. E-M effects

b. Radar

c. Physiological/medical effects

d  Landing traces

e. Animal reactions

f. Photographic evidence

g. Computerized pattern and correlation analysis

VI. Publication and peer review of data, analysis, and findings.

VII. Testing of the hypothesis that  some UFOs represent an as-
yet unexplained, potentially significant phenomenon of worldwide
scope, giving both the appearance and some instrumented evidence
of  being solid, structured objects (i.e., craft).
