Section 2.3: Geomagnetism

The main focus of this Priority Programme is to quantify terrestrial transport mechanisms and solar-terrestrial interactions through data analysis and modeling. The research programme builds on data from satellites on low-Earth orbits, such as CHAMP, GRACE, and GOCE. Special focus is given to the Swarm satellite mission.

The project focuses on connecting and understanding long-term changes of the Earth’s magnetic field, paleomagnetosphere, solar variability and their implications on paleoclimate studies in an interdisciplinary manner, in particular considering geomagnetic excursions during the past 100 ka.

We study the configuration of the paleomagnetosphere and the solar variability over the past 100 ka, in particular during geomagnetic excursions, and their effects on the shielding against galactic cosmic rays and in situ cosmogenic nuclide production rates.
