The Solar Dynamo theory

26 May 2013

A paper in Nature by Tobias and Cettaneo is discussed at http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2013/05/steve-tobias-rediscovering-the-so... ... which claims researchers at Leeds and Chicago universities have discovered a mechanism behind the generation of magnetic fields such as that of the Sun. The solution is a solar dynamo. It also takes into account plasma - which is ionised gas. Steve Tobias is from the University of Leeds School of Mathematics.
