The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) on October 4, 2010 published a paper presented by myself, Chris Landau at their annual conference in Miami on Sepember 15, 2010 on three concepts.They are:
Three new concepts are proposed:
Heating our Earth and the planets by Rotation or Spin, not by radio active decay.
Jupiter and Saturn's Spring Tides cause the Sunspot Cycle and Solar Magnetic field reversals.
Planetary rings of gas giants are caused by alternating magnetic fields due to a rapid spin.
The relationships are:
Rapid Planetary Rotation causes internal heating, through density increase, changing magnetic and electric flows within the core, resulting in convective heat, continental drift and volcanism.
Sunspot Jupiter-Saturn Tidal link for sunspot cycle timing and solar magnetic field reversals.
