Rapid Changes In Earth’s Core, Magnetic Field And Gravity Seen By Satellites (w/Video)

Image : Computer simulation of the Earth‘s field in a normal period between reversals. The tubes represent magnetic field lines, blue when the field points towards the center and yellow when away. The rotation axis of the Earth is centered and vertical. The dense clusters of lines are within the Earth’s core SOURCE: Description  From article quoted below. SOURCE OF IMAGE: Wikipedia.

Annual to decadal changes in the earth’s magnetic field in a region that stretches from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean have a close relationship with variations of gravity in this area. From this it can be concluded that outer core processes are reflected in gravity data. This is the result presented by a German-French group of geophysicists in the latest issue of PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States). . . . Read Complete Report
