"Baromagnetism" of planets and stars

V.I. Grigor'ev

Moscow University Physics Bulletin 1999. 54. N 1. P. 63

  • Article

Physical mechanism of formation of magnetic fields of planets and stars associated with differential motions of electric charges in their interior acquired due to the baroelectric effect is considered. This polarization-kinetic mechanism, not discussed previously, allows an understanding, in particular, of how tidal effects cause the noncoincidence of the geographic and magnetic axes of celestial bodies.
