Geomagnetic field intensity: How high can it get? How fast can it change? Constraints from Iron Age copper slag
article The intensity of the geomagnetic field varies over different time scales. Yet, constraints on the maximum intensity of the field as well as for its maximum rate of change are inadequate dueExpand
