Perspectives Lecture: Exploring Extremes of Earth’s Magnetic Field
Explore Earth’s mysteries through the Jeffrey B. Graham "Perspectives on Ocean Science" Lecture Series, presented monthly at Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. From the cosmos to the ocean abyss, join Scripps researchers on their paths to discovery in this acclaimed series. Note: There is no August lecture.
The July 12 lecture will be "Exploring Extremes of Earth’s Magnetic Field" with Jeff Gee, Scripps geoscientist.
The Earth's magnetic field varies on many time scales, waxing and waning in strength, and periodically completely reversing direction. The geologic record of these variations provides important information on the history of our planet. Join Scripps Oceanography geoscientist Jeff Gee for a fascinating glimpse into his fieldwork in paleomagnetism from autonomous aircraft measurements over the open ocean to exploration of rock exposures in remote regions of Antarctica.
