Abstract: Earth's magnetic field is generated by processes in the electrically conducting, liquid outer core, subsumed under the term 'geodynamo'. In the last decades, great effort has been put into the numerical simulation of core dynamics following from the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations. However, the numerical simulations are far from Earth's core in terms of several control parameters. Different scaling analyses found simple scaling laws for quantities like heat transport, flow velocity, magnetic field strengt… Show more
