Example text

The contraction would further concentrate the sunspot’s field lines, leading to further cooling, until a balance of magnetic and plasma pressure was reached. Parker invoked Biermann’s cooling mechanism to complete his scenario for the formation of a pair of sunspots with strong magnetic fields. By the late 1950s Parker had sketched a rudimentary theory for the solar cycle and the formation of sunspots, but new observations at Mount Wilson Observatory would soon require a thorough revision of his basic ideas.

Faraday went on to demonstrate how to create a steady current with a device he called a dynamo. In Faraday’s dynamo (see fig. 3), a disk of copper is free to rotate in the field of a permanent magnet. When Faraday cranked the disk, a steady current flowed in the circuit. The faster the speed of rotation, the stronger the current. The dynamo was converting mechanical energy (from the experimenter’s hand) to electrical and magnetic energy. In a more elaborate version of a dynamo, the current that it generates is used in part to create the magnetic field that it requires.

Now over 80, he still maintains his wiry figure by daily walks at 4 miles an hour. Parker’s career took off in 1955. In that year he published a mathematical demonstration of an idea that cracked the problem of the geomagnetic field. In his theory he postulated two belts of toroidal field in the Earth’s core, with opposite polarities north and south of the equator, such as those Elsasser had demonstrated. In his example the field points to the east in the northern hemisphere. He then proposed that convection cells in the core move the same way as “cyclones” in the Earth’s atmosphere.
