Hoffman agreed: “We haven’t found anything really questionable about the rock magnetics.” Similarly, they convincingly countered other hypotheses, such as that the changes in the magnetization reflected changes in the external geomagnetic field associated with, for example, a magnetic storm.
Bloxham acknowledged that he and his fellow geophysicists had a hard time explaining away the findings. Indeed, Merrill agreed: “They are some of the best experimentalists in the world.
Credit: NIPR/Ibaraki University/JAMSTEC The Earth's magnetic field periodically reverses such that the north magnetic pole becomes the south magnetic pole.
The latest reversal is called by geologists the Matuyama-Brunhes boundary (MBB), and occurred approximately 780,000 years ago.
For almost three decades the paleomagnetic record of extraordinarily rapid polarity reversals of the earth’s magnetic field in basalt lava flows at Steens Mountain in southern Oregon has stood as a challenge to the conventional millions-of-years geodynamo model.
