Meteorologists have long wondered whether solar energy or heat energy from within the planet predominates in driving Jupiter9s powerful weather engine. In two papers in this week9s issue of Nature, researchers provide an answer: Deep heat funneled upward by local storms is a major driver of jovian weather. They show that much if not all of the deep heat escaping the interior flows up through towering thunderstorms that eventually give up their energy to larger storms such as the Great Red Spot… 
Is the Stormy Weather of Jupiter is Comparable to Earth
The atmosphere of Jupiter is mainly made of molecular hydrogen and helium. The cloud pattern as found at different Jupiter belts and the vertical structure of its atmosphere are examined indicating
The Origin of Geomagnetic Fields and the Cause of Its Reversal
People's knowledge and utilization of geomagnetic field has been going on for thousands of years, and many hypotheses have been proposed about the origin of geomagnetic field, yet so far none of them
