Lowrie describes how the magnetic field also magnetizes rocks during their formation, leaving a permanent record of the ancient field and its direction that geophysicists have learned to use to interpret past motions of the continents and tectonic plates.

It is the motion in this molten iron layer that produces the Earth’s magnetic field, which shields the planet against harmful radiation from the Sun and outer space, and thus makes the planet habitable.

It gives a comprehensive treatment of the fundamental geo;hysics of each major branch of geophysics, and presents geophysics within the wider context of plate tectonics, geodynamics and planetary science. That is not correct since in MacCullah’s formula the centrifugal term coming from Earth’s rotation is not considered!!!!
