To reflect the newly published research in the International Journal of Climatology, I will highlight this area to present data indicating a direct causal effect between charged particles and the Earth’s core. What sits under the oceans of the Greenland and Iceland area is Mid-Atlantic Ridge which is part of the world-circling undersea tectonic plate system that is the point of convergence of new crust formation. The Icelandic region formed by the spreading tectonic boundary of the North American and European plates and the emergence of a mantle plume.

Recent discoveries suggest charged particles and their interplay with Earth’s magnetic field has an effect far beneath the Earth’s surface. Researcher Denis Andrault, a mineral physicist at Blaise Pascal University, was recently published in the scientific journal ‘Nature’. His research shows mantel plumes form narrow streams of molten rock which horizontally expand as they rise to the surface.

As a living entity, Earth fights for its survival. If internal or external events begin to throw Earth out of balance i.e. orbital, tilt, or magnetic alignment – it begins to correct itself. When submarine tectonic subduction occurs, it cools the mantle and outer core. To balance this shift in cooling temperatures, the Earth’s core increases heat. As a result of over-heating, mantle plumes develop releasing its super-heated liquid rock as it finds its way to Earth’s crust and ocean bottoms.

This action both cools the outer core and heats the oceans. As a result of heated oceans, we get tropical storms and various forms of extreme weather. This adjustment to ambient temperatures can also be the impetus of earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes tsunamis, and volcanoes occur.

The Earth’s magnetic field is generated by what is known as the “dynamo or dipole” theory which involves the convection of liquid iron in the outer core. The latest data continues to show the Earth’s magnetic field is weakening. What happens to the Earth when shields go down?
