Convective Dynamos

Extract

Convective dynamo theory can be regarded as combining two kinds of physical problems, each Involving an electrically conducting fluid medium, but differing in the role of the magnetic field and in the physical processes described. On the one hand, if the fluid is taken to be permeated by a prescribed magnetic field , under suitable conditions, involving a sufficiently strong flux of heat for example, convective motion of the fluid will ensue. On the other hand, kinematic dynamo theory insures that a sufficiently complicated fluid motion can sustain or excite a magnetic field.
