Consequence of Earth’s Early Formation as a Jupiter-Like Gas Giant

J. Marvin Herndon

The last 200 years have seen major discoveries in determining how the Earth formed, but until now, a unifying theory did not exist. In this ebook, Dr. J. Marvin Herndon puts his forth his theory of the Earth’s formation and how that determined some of our planet’s characteristics, namely the geomagnetic field. Learn more about what the magnetic field does, how it protects us from the Sun, why the field reverses at irregular intervals, what’s at the Earth’s core, and what would happen if the field failed. Herndon carefully correlates his theory with important discoveries by scientific pioneers William Gilbert, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Emil Wiechert, Henry Cavendish, Hans Christian Oersted, Michael Faraday, and Arnold Eucken. A must-read for geology and earth science enthusiasts, this easy-to-read ebook is a great addition to the history of scientific discovery.
