Our recent work published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters
Ohmic dissipation in the Earth's outer core resulting from the free inner core nutation YufengLin* & Gordon I.Ogilvie Highlights The magnetic field alters the propagation of inertial waves induced by the free inner core nutation. Ohmic dissipation becomes insensitive to the fluid viscosity at very low Ekman numbers. Ohmic dissipation is too weak to account for the […]
