Predicting the next global geomagnetic reversal using machine learning
Dr P Livermore, Dr C Davies
7 January 2019
The Earth’s magnetic field, generated by turbulent convection in the liquid outer core, has reversed many times over its 3.5 billion-year history, at a present rate of about 2-3 times per million years (Stern, 2002) The last global reversal took place 780,000 years ago, leading to speculation that we are “overdue”.

Project Summary. This PhD project will address the issue related to capturing the magnetic field from skeletal muscles by bringing about a novel, robust and efficient technique based on Magnetomyography (MMG).
Electrodynamics of the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere-atmosphere coupled system

The interaction of the solar wind with the Earth’s magnetic field leads to dynamic phenomena in near-Earth space, including the energization and circulation of plasma within the magnetosphere and ionosphere – the most visible manifestation of which is the polar auroras – which lead to a hostile environment for space- and ground-based technologies.
