Computational Aspects of Geodynamo Simulations
May/June 2000 (vol. 2 no. 3)
pp. 61-67
A computer simulation of magnetic field generation by convection in the Earth's fluid outer core produces a time dependent field that, like the Earth's, is strongly dipole dominated outside the core and occasionally undergoes spontaneous dipole reversals. The computational challenge posed by this rapidly-rotating low-viscosity magnetohydrodynamic problem and the numerical method used are discussed.
