The purpose of BLT Research Team Inc. is to carry out scientific evaluation of plants, soils, and related materials collected at crop circle sites around the world in order to better understand the physical nature and origin of the energy system involved in the crop circle formation process.

The BLT Research Team Inc. is an international research group with non-profit, tax-exempt status in the U.S., comprised of several hundred field-workers in North America and Western Europe, who collect plant and soil samples for examination by multiple consulting scientists in a variety of disciplines. These disciplines include biology, geology, minerology, analytical chemistry and physics; techniques available include SEM/EDX, mass spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, gas chromatography and associated microscopy.

Please note that this is just a small sample of the ongoing research efforts of the BLT Research Team Inc., who have provided some invaluable breakthroughs in crop circle analysis. This small selection of research results is merely the 'tip of the iceburg'. They now have their own web site at if you would like more information on their ongoing research.

The photos below document some of the major biophysical alterations discovered in crop formation plants sampled from 1991-1995 formations in the U.S. and U.K. These changes in the affected plants have been consistently observed throughout six seasons, and these photos represent thousands of hours of laboratory examination and field-work. Two papers have been published in the scientific literature which discuss the findings in detail [Levengood, W.C., "Anatomical Anomalies in Crop Formation Plants", Physiologia Plantarum (92:1994); Levengood, W.C. and Burke, john A., "Semi-Molten Meteoric Iron Associated with a Crop Formation", J.Scientific Exploration (9:2,1995)]. A third paper is in progress.

These extensively documented physical changes to plants (wheat, barley, corn, oats, rye, and others) in crop formations around the world strongly suggest the involvement of complex, intensely energetic plasma systems operating under conditions of deterministic chaos.

Cell-wall-pit enlargement (wheat), 1991 event at Lockeridge (UK); first seen in parenchyma, now in bract tissue.

Massively enlarged & bent node (wheat), 1995 event at Blue Ball, MD (US); control on left, formation on right.
