Earth's Magnetic Field Strength - Past 800,000 Years ...

2009-9-25  The graph shows the strength of Earth's magnetic field over the past 800,000 years. The last reversal of Earth's magnetic field was 780,000 year ago. The direction of the magnetic field has been "normal" (meaning "like it is today") since then. This normal period is called the Brunhes normal chron.

The strength of the Earth’s magnetic field from Pre ...

2021-8-24  The Earth’s magnetic field has changed significantly in the past with implications for related phenomena, such as deep-Earth processes and evolution of life. Accurate datasets of its past behavior also provide a dating tool. We present data from Neolithic ceramics and flint from Jordan. Our results are among the oldest in the Levant, covering a period of major changes in human history.

Earth's Magnetic Field Strength and the Cretaceous

1 Introduction. From the analysis of satellite data, a rapid decrease of the present-day Earth's magnetic (geomagnetic) field strength (intensity) is observed, thus raising the question of whether Earth is currently approaching a polarity reversal (e.g., Hulot et al., 2002; Pavón-Carrasco De Santis, 2016) or not (Brown et al., 2018).Constraining the past evolution of intensity ...
