- magnetohydrodynamics of the Earth’s core
The Earth’s outer core is a complex magnetohydrodynamic system. It consists of an electrically conducting incompressible stratified spherical fluid layer between the mantle and the inner core. The fluid rotates with uniform angular velocity and is permeated by a magnetic field. The dynamics of the system is manifested by long-term changes in the geomagnetic field on the Earth’s surface – the co called secular variations. The research concerns elementary hydromagnetic processes that may be responsible for observed changes of the geomagnetic filed.
