History and Future of the Martian Dynamo and Implications of a Hypothetical Solid Inner Core
Although Mars does not possess a global magnetic field today, regions of its crust are strongly magnetized, consistent with an early dynamo, likely powered by rapid heat flow from the core. If the
Constraining mantle convection models with palaeomagnetic reversals record and numerical dynamos
S U M M A R Y We present numerical models of mantle dynamics forced by plate velocities history in the last 450 Ma. The lower-mantle rheology and the thickness of a dense basal layer are
Hemispherical Parker waves driven by thermal shear in planetary dynamos
Planetary and stellar magnetic fields are thought to be sustained by helical motions ($\alpha$-effect) and, if present, differential rotation ($\Omega$-effect). In the Sun, the strong differential
A dynamo explanation for Mercury's anomalous magnetic field
Recent MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) measurements have shown that Mercury's magnetic field is axial‐dominant, yet strongly asymmetric with respect to the

While devoid of an active magnetic dynamo field today, Mars possesses a remanent magnetic field that may reach several thousand nanoteslas locally. The exact origin and the events that have shaped

Mars' Paleomagnetic Field as the Result of a Single-Hemisphere Dynamo
TLDR
Numerical dynamo modeling is used to demonstrate that the mechanisms proposed to explain crustal dichotomy formation can result in a single-hemisphere dynamo, which produces strong magnetic fields in only the southern hemisphere.
Degree-1 convection in the Martian mantle and the origin of the hemispheric dichotomy
[1] The surface of Mars appears dramatically different between the northern and southern hemispheres. Any endogenic origin for this hemispheric dichotomy must involve a pattern of mantle convection
