How the Geomagnetic Field Influences Life on Earth - An Integrated Approach to Geomagnetobiology.

The GMF has a positive impact on living organisms, whereas a diminishing or disappearing GMF negatively affects living organisms.

Biological Effects of Space Hypomagnetic Environment on Circadian Rhythm

Light is shed on the health effects of HMF on circadian rhythms by elaborating the underlying circadian clock machinery and molecular processes by systemizing the latest progress on interdisciplinary cooperation between magnetobiology and chronobiology.

A simplified correlation between vertebrate evolution and Paleozoic geomagnetism

Background. Despite a fifty-year failure of paleontologists to find a viable connection between geomagnetic polarity reversals and evolutionary patterns, recent paleobiology databases show that the

An Earth-like planetary magnetic field has been widely invoked as a requirement for habitability as it purportedly mitigates the fluxes of ionizing radiation reaching the surface and the escape of

The geomagnetic field effects on animals: A review

The geomagnetic field (GMF) maintains the Earths long-term habitability for living organisms by preventing the radiation of solar wind and the oxygen and water ions escape. Understanding the


The international geological time scale now in wide use is based on a continuing and evolving synthesis of world stratigraphy and paleontology. It provides a convenient division of earth history into

Synthesis of heavy hydrocarbons at the core-mantle boundary

Performing ab initio molecular dynamics simulations of the C-O-H-Fe system finds that when Fe is added to the system, C-C bonds emerge, meaning that oil might be a more abundant mineral than previously thought.



Calculations on the thermal history of the Earth

The possible thermal history of a spherically symmetric earth is studied by comparing numerical calculations of the development of temperature within a number of model earths with observations on the

Thermal History of the Earth with consideration of the Variable Thermal Conductivity of its Mantle

Summary Data about the abundance of the radioactive elements and the thermal conductivity of the Earth are in favour of the view that its initial temperature To(r) must have been below the melting

XXV. The onset of convection by thermal instability in spherical shells

In this paper the problem of the thermal instability of an incompressible sphere consisting of an inviscid core and a viscous mantle is considered, and it is shown that the pattern of convection

Radiation Around the Earth to a Radial Distance of 107,400 km.

Radiation detectors and the radio-telemetry system for Pioneer III observations of the Earth's radiation belt are described. Information is given on the vehicle and its trajectory, and logs of flight
