Mathematical Aspects of Natural Dynamos

Mathematical Aspects of Natural Dynamos

1st Edition

Emmanuel Dormy, Andrew M. Soward
June 11, 2007

Although the origin of Earth's and other celestial bodies' magnetic fields remains unknown, we do know that the motion of electrically conducting fluids generates and maintains these fields, forming the basis of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and, to a larger extent, dynamo theory. Answering the need...

Fluid Dynamics and Dynamos in Astrophysics and Geophysics

Fluid Dynamics and Dynamos in Astrophysics and Geophysics

1st Edition

Andrew M. Soward, Christopher A. Jones, David W. Hughes, Nigel O. Weiss
March 16, 2005

The increasing power of computer resources along with great improvements in observational data in recent years have led to some remarkable and rapid advances in astrophysical fluid dynamics. The subject spans three distinct but overlapping communities whose interests focus on (1) accretion discs...

Earth's Core and Lower Mantle

Earth's Core and Lower Mantle

1st Edition

C.A. Jones, Andrew M. Soward, K. Zhang
June 26, 2003

Scientists have made new inroads in the study of the Earth's deep interior. They have forged developments in this fascinating arena using experimental and observational techniques,. including seismology, monitoring of the Earth's rotation, geomagnetism, and accurate measurements of Earth's gravity...

Advances in Nonlinear Dynamos

Advances in Nonlinear Dynamos

1st Edition

Antonio Ferriz-Mas, Manuel Nunez
April 24, 2003

Nonlinear dynamo theory is central to understanding the magnetic structures of planets, stars and galaxies. In chapters contributed by some of the leading scientists in the field, this text explores some of the recent advances in the field. Both kinetic and dynamic approaches to the subject are...

Geophysical & Astrophysical Convection

1st Edition

Peter A Fox, Robert M. Kerr
August 08, 2000

Geophysical and Astrophysical Convection collects important papers from an international group of the world's foremost researchers in geophysical and astrophysical convection to present a concise overview of recent thinking in the field. Topics include: Atmospheric convection, solar and stellar...

Earth's Deep Interior: The Doornbos Memorial Volume

Earth's Deep Interior: The Doornbos Memorial Volume

1st Edition

D. Crossley
April 08, 1997

A comprehensive reference to the current understanding of solid-earth geophysics, chapters are based on papers presented at the SEDI (Structure of the Earth's Deep Interior) meeting in Canada 1994. The papers represent a synopsis of the current thinking behind a number of large, mostly unsolved,...
