Earth Magnets

Most scientists believe that the Earth magnetic field is not generated out of a permanent magnet but is induced by the electrons that the inner core is continuously emitting and which happen to flow in the outer core in helical paths thanks to Earth spin. However, this does not explain neither the reasons behind the current collapse of the magnetic field nor the reasons behind reversed magnetic field in Antarctica that started to emerge 10,000 years ago. Some scientists believe that Earth’s spin started billions of years ago after a nebula collapsed. As the nebula collapsed its fragments began rotating and due to the accretion, which means the growth of a massive object by gravitationally attracting more matter; the masses started to impact one another causing an angular momentum to result and to keep the big body spinning. In our everyday experience, it’s the force of friction that tends to stop Earth-bound objects from moving forever. But, for the Earth rotation about its axis, there is no force working to counteract the rotation, so scientists believe that there is no need to have any input energy to keep it spinning or to stop it and if it is stopped spinning, it can never spin again. However, this does not explain why Earth’s spin speed over the last 400 years was not constant as it kept slowing down and speeding up by some milliseconds every day.  Some other scientists believe that the initial spin came as a result of an epic collision between Earth and another planet that created the Earth angular momentum and forced the planet to spin. Thanks to the accretion, the resultant debris assembled together to form the moon. The saying that accretion helps matter to gravitationally assemble and as a consequence a spin is created is no longer valid since the moon of today does not spin at all about its axis.

What is a Magnet?

The magnetic field results from magnetic monopoles. As its name implies, a magnetic monopole has only one magnetic pole (either a north pole or a south pole). In other words, it would possess a “magnetic charge” analogous to electric charge [1]. It is also found that a magnetic monopole is a stream of photons that oscillate at a specific frequency [2]. The magnetic monopoles of a bar magnet, for example, result from the extra spin of electrons which point in one direction, than from the electrons which point in the opposite direction of electron pairs that lie in the optimal geometrical arrangement of the metal. Roger Penrose explains in his book, The Emperor’s New Mind that the momentum wave function formula, that tells the time and position of a photon, is a corkscrew or helix [3]. Thus one can visualize magnetic attraction and repulsion between two magnets as streams of photons with their corkscrew shaped wave functions screwing into ‘attraction’ or screwing out of ‘repulsion’ with each other.  As forces do indeed arise from an exchange of particles, it has been suggested that such streams of photons travel in what we call the magnetic force lines. He also explains that all emitted photons must carry some mass because according to Einstein’s formula E=mc2 where ‘E’ is the energy, ‘m’ is the mass and ‘c’ is the speed of light. Photons exhibit wave-particle duality; i.e. they enjoy and own both wave-like and particle-like properties. Such a wave-particle duality is a central concept of Quantum Physics; the branch of physics that explains the interactions of energy and matter. This duality addresses the inadequacy of classical concepts like “particle” and “wave” in fully describing the behavior of quantum-scale atoms and smaller elements such as photons. A Planck’s formula applies at such minute scale. The formula states that the energy of a travelling photon is proportionate to its frequency E=hf where ‘E’ is the energy, ‘h’ is Planck’s constant and ‘f’ is the photon frequency. Not only because they were colleagues and friends but by putting both Einstein and Planck’s formulae together, we find that the mass of a photon is directly proportionate to its frequency or E=mc2=hf. This means that the higher the frequency of a photon gets, the higher its mass becomes. Since mass in motion creates force, magnetic force is hence produced following Newton second law of motion; F=ma, where ‘F’ is the force, ‘m’ is the mass and ‘a’ is the rate of change of particle velocity with time.  Such a force that is established between any two magnets could, therefore, lead to a force that is strong enough to tilt one or the two magnets off their original positions. So, what is the source of Earth Magnetic field, you may wonder?

The Outer Core is Bulged

The internal structure of the Earth, like that of the other terrestrial planets, is chemically divided into layers. The Earth has an outer silicate solid Crust, under which is a highly viscous Mantle. The Earth also has a liquid Outer Core that is much less viscous than the Mantle, and a solid Inner Core. As the Earth spins about its axis, material near the planet’s equator must travel farther to make one rotation than material near to the spin axis must travel. All material has inertia; i.e. the tendency of a moving mass to continue moving in a straight line until stopped by an external force. This property makes the fast-moving material near the Equator to want to fly off from the planet in a straight line. The rest of the mass of the planet gravitationally attracts the material and keeps it glued to the planet, but the material’s inertia makes the planet to bulge out at the Equator. We  should therefore expect that every geological layer is eventually and constantly bulged. The bulge that we observe on the surface is repeated at every geological layer and in various degrees of eccentricity depending on the layer mass and distance from the centre of the Earth. As the Mantle has double the density than that of the Crust and has bigger volume, we expect it to be highly bulged. This allows the Outer Core, fivefold denser viscous liquid, to appear more oblate than the crust of Earth. In all situations the bulge major axis is aligned with the equatorial axis.

Figure 14- Earth cutaway from core to exosphereElectrons emitted from the radio active Inner Core prefers to flow along the bulged Outer Core major axis due to its relatively lower resistance viscous fluid status. In other words most electrons flow along the Equatorial Plane from the Inner Core to the inner Mantle (A). The electronic current could therefore be named the “Equatorial Electric Current”. A magnetic field is thus induced and is constantly maintained by the flow of the electrons in the Outer Core. A known requirement for the induction of a magnetic field is a rotating fluid. Particles moving in a straight line inside a rotating fluid would seem to be moving in circles when observed from an external non-moving frame of reference. Newton’s laws of motion govern the motion of an object in an inertial frame of reference, in which matter remains at rest or stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. However, when transforming Newton’s laws to a rotating frame of reference, the Coriolis force appears, together with the centrifugal force.

Earth’s Two Induced Magnets of South Polarity

The Coriolis force acts in a direction perpendicular to the rotation axis. The force is proportionate to the object’s speed in the rotating frame. The Coriolis force tends to organize fluid motions. It organizes the electrons’ currents into circular motions around columns that are aligned with the rotation axis of the rotating frame. Electronic current in any circuit produces magnetic field that is perpendicular to the plane of the electric path. Consequently, magnetic force lines, in the centre of the circular-helical motion of the electronic currents should always be aligned with the rotation axis of the Earth at all times, but that is not the case if it were the true magnetic field that engulfs and protect Earth from Sun and Cosmic rays as we observe a continuous wandering of the magnetic poles (B).

There is, currently, an 10° gap angle between the Earth’s axis of rotation and the imaginary line connecting the magnetic poles. This gap angle is changing as manifested by the wandering poles.  If the magnetic field that we observe on the surface of the Earth arouse from the free electrons flowing through the Outer Core, as most Scientists claim, then we should expect to observe no gap between the magnetic poles and the axis of the rotation of the Earth! Why then does such an 10° gap angle exist? Moreover why is it continuously changing?

Moving objects on the surface of the Earth experience a Coriolis force, and appear to veer to the right in the northern hemisphere, and to the left in the southern hemisphere. Exactly on the Equator, motion east or west, remains precariously along the line of the Equator. Movements of air in the atmosphere and whirlpools in the ocean are notable examples of such a behavior. Rather than flowing directly into the sink, water flows in a counterclockwise direction in the northern hemisphere and in a clockwise direction in the southern hemisphere. The Coriolis force is responsible for the direction of rotation of large cyclones. In electrical terms, an electric current always flows in an opposite direction to the flow direction of its electrons. Upon applying Coriolis force onto the electric currents that move counterclockwise in the lower half of the Outer Core, a magnetic field is induced in the opposite polarity to the magnetic field that is induced by the clockwise movement of electric current in the upper half of the Outer Core. The induced magnetic field in the upper half would appear as patches of south magnet when measured on the surface in the Arctic Circle. The induced magnetic field in the lower half would appear as patches of south magnet when measured on the surface in Antarctica. In other words and following Coriolis we do get 2 induced south magnets that appear on the surface of the Earth (C); as shown above.

Plasmoids indicating Magnetic Pole Reversal is a Myth

As the speed of the electric current varies along its 2,200 km (1,367 miles) trip from the Inner Core to the Mantle, the strength if the induced magnetic force lines will also vary and will mostly be observed on the Earth’s surface around the geographical poles at the surface projection area of the Outer Core beneath. The contours shown are the time rate of change of the magnetic strength in the North and South Poles [4]. Full curves show contours where the rate of change of magnetic flux is positive while dotted contours refer to regions where the rate of change is negative. These latter contours are found to partly overlap with regions of Reverse Magnetic Flux where the radial field points in a direction opposite to that expected for a dipole magnetic field. The contours of negative time variation are seen to straddle almost the whole of the Antarctic continental and large expanses of the adjoining ocean areas below South America and South Africa. There remain strong flux points that define the normal north and south magnetic poles as we observe on a typical compass. The research by the scholars of the Indian Institute of Geomagnetism, Colaba, Mumbai, India goes on to describe four static flux bundles of intense magnetic flux, the two northern ones being located below Arctic Canada and Siberia, and the two southern ones located below Antarctica. This feature makes it impossible for the Earth to have one dipole magnet source no matter what origin it has. These four flux bundles have remained almost stationary for over 250 years. It also describes that over the period 1842 AD to 1980 AD when the magnetic dipole field decayed by 5% in the Arctic, regions of Reverse Magnetic Flux created patches that have increased in size and in intensity. The observation suggests the existence of more than one dipole magnet and that some are riding over in the weakness of others.

Given A, B and C above, there remains one possibility for the source of the single strong magnetic field, which is in constant move and that distinguish itself on the surface and around the Earth; and that is the Inner Core.  The following figure illustrates a three magnet configuration that can well explain the mystery of the source of Earth’s magnetism and the origin of the spinning of the planet. The two cylindrically shaped magnetic fields that emerge on the surface of the planet at the orthographic projection of the Outer Core as they are induced by the swamps of free electrons flowing in the Outer Core and the third is a strong dipole magnet that originates from the Inner Core. While the upper semi-sphere Outer Core magnetic force lines add to the Inner Core dipole magnet and creates a stronger pull force, the lower semi-sphere Outer Core magnetic force lines repel the Inner Core dipole magnet and creates a repelling push force. The two forces act in parallel and are in the same direction. The resultant friction between the Inner Core and the rotating Outer Core leads to the transfer of the angular movement from the Outer Core to the Inner Core. This keeps the Inner Core spinning at the same angular velocity as the rest of the Earth.  Such spots of negative polarity magnetic field force in the South Pole, also known as Plasmoids started to appear some 10,000 years ago according to the Colaba research. This tells us that earlier than such time, Earth spinning was so slow that the emitted electrons, flowing in the Outer Core did not move in helical path and accordingly did not induce or generate any magnetic field force.

    It is a myth that the the spinning of the earth more than 10000 years ago could be slow. The dynamic situation of sun, moon,earth and the temperatures on earth would have been adversaly affected. But the history does not point to these situations. The fact of the matter is that civilization flourished 45000 years on wards. Please explai the anamolies.

      Most predictions assume that if Earth spins slower or spins no more whilst orbiting the Sun, there will be a big difference in temperature between the side facing and the side not facing the Sun. A very detriment to any civilization to flourish as civilizations need mild and sustainable climate to grow. The assumption here is that the thermal energy arriving through radiation from the Sun is the one bringing warmth to the surface of the planet for the atmosphere, the air molecules, water vapour, carbon gases, ..etc to keep it in. However, the model I introduce is different, as I explain that the thermal energy arriving through radiation from the Thermosphere to the Troposphere is much higher than that directly from Sun. The “Earth Temperature” page on this site explains how the Temperature Belts of homogenous climates take the magnetic poles for its centres. The closer the region to the magnetic pole, the colder it is and vice versa. The “Earth Spin” page of this site explains what makes Earth spin and how could the location of the magnetic poles influence the spin speed. In the model I introduced, the magnetic poles play double role as they wander from one geo to another; 1) the relocation of the Temperature Belts and possible climate exchange, and 2) the Spin Speed and different lengths of days. For instance, if the 2 magnetic poles are, at one time, get located in India and Brazil, the magnetic equator at which the temperature is highest on the surface of Earth at sea level, would be passing through Elsmere Island and Antarctica all year round. Thus bringing almost equal warmth at the side facing and not facing the Sun. You may refer also to the “October 2015” post on this site for geological evidences in North Africa (7,000 years ago) and North West China (10,000 years ago) when Earth Spin speed was different. The Pineal Gland plays a role in the speed of aging. If the succession of day and night is fast, the aging is fast and vice versa. Holy books and ancient texts speak of eras when the average age was 900 solar years, 300 solar years and 180 solar years. Currently it is 80 years on average..
