Credit: Nelson Parker Radiocarbon measurements on the remains of 42,000-year-old New Zealand kauri trees provide the basis for better calibration of geological archives of this period. The last complete reversal of the Earth’s magnetic field, the so-called Laschamps event, took place 42,000 years ago. Radiocarbon analyses of […]

NASA’s Unprecedented Map of Sun’s Magnetic Field – Including the Mysterious Chromosphere

The chromosphere, photographed during the 1999 total solar eclipse. The red and pink hues – light emitted by hydrogen – earned it the name chromosphere, from the Greek “chrôma” meaning color. Credit: Luc Viatour For decades after its discovery, observers could only see the solar chromosphere for a few fleeting moments: during a total solar […]

Cut Your Kitchen’s Carbon Footprint With Magnetic Induction Cooking

Bye-bye, burners. To curb climate change, many experts have called for a massive shift from fossil fuels to electricity. The goal is to electrify processes like heating homes and powering cars, and then generate the increased electrical power needs using low- or zero-carbon sources like wind, solar and hydropower. More than 30 cities in California, […]

However, their instruments are blind to its main driver: the magnetic field in the outer layers of the solar atmosphere, where the explosive events […]

Earth’s Magnetic Field Reversal 42,000 Years Ago Triggered a Global Environmental Crisis

Nearly 42,000 years ago, when Earth’s magnetic fields reversed, this triggered major environmental changes, extinction events, and long-term changes in human behavior, a new study reports. The findings, made possible by a new radiocarbon record derived from New Zealand’s ancient kauri trees, raise important questions about the evolutionary impacts of geomagnetic reversals and excursions throughout […]

Earth’s magnetic field flipped 42,000 years ago, creating a climate ‘disaster’

A reversal in Earth’s magnetic field thousands of years ago plunged the planet into an environmental crisis that may have resembled “a disaster movie,” scientists recently discovered.  Our planet‘s magnetic field is dynamic and, numerous times, it has flipped — when the magnetic North and South Poles swap places. In our electronics-dependent world, such a […]

Magnetic Fields Help Shape the Formation of New Planets

In all of scientific modeling, the models attempting to replicate planetary and solar system formation are some of the most complicated.  They are also notoriously difficult to develop.  Normally they center around one of two formative ideas: planets are shaped primarily by gravity or planets are shaped primarily by magnetism.  Now a new theoretical model […]
