CRUSTAL STORMS OF CONTINENTAL/PLANETARY SCALE
- Earth's battery and Earth's electrocardiogram, internal state, structure, and
time variation, endogenous energy production and release, the role of solar
modulation, and the "French Revolution" jerk -
Crustal storms are a continental or almost planetary scale phenomenon. Their explanation can be given, however, in the framework of a general and improved geodynamic rationale. A very short description is here given of the geodynamic implications of a long study, which is presently in the stage of final editing. In particular, a feature is stressed dealing with the structure and temporal evolution of the inner core. Its reasonably guessed state is (perhaps) proven by some peculiar and otherwise unexplained feature of the geomagnetic secular variation. A significant test for the model here proposed ought to rely on a worldwide monitoring array of crustal stress propagation and temporal evolution. This could be, maybe, most simply carried out by acoustic emission (AE) techniques. But, even better, AE ought to be part of a general and improved multiparametric approach, although this item cannot be here discussed.
