Main Article Content
A global model of the Earth's crust has been constructed of two-layer blocks of 2° x 2° dimension, with thickness and susceptibility selected from a ten-step classification of the various crustal types. Considering induced magnetization only, the magnetic effect of each block has been approximated by a single dipole in the middle of the block, directed parallel to the field for a given main field model (32,400 dipoles altogether). The magnetic field of this global model of the crust has been calculated for an altitude of 450 km, appropriate for a comparison with anomaly fields from satellite surveys. From field values at 1° x 1° grid points, model anomaly charts for the X, Y, Z-components and for the total intensity can be plotted. The underlying crustal parameters have been prepared for modification towards adjusting the model field to the final Magsat anomaly field. The aim is to construct a truly realistic model of the whole Earth's crust. Based on a global distribution of the Z-component of the model field a spherical harmonic analysis has been made by a direct integral method, up to degree and order 35. The energy density spectrum of the magnetic field, apart from the lowest degree terms, resembles a "white" spectrum in which the level nearly meets that obtained for the crustal part of an actual field model (from n = 15 to 29), except for a factor of less than 3. A supplemental evaluation of the core part of the observed spectrum indicates a source depth of some 100 km below the surface of the Earth's core, supported by a similar result for the secular variation of the core field.

c. Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) during the submission process, as this can lead to productive exchanges and earlier and greater citation of published work and better sales of the copyright.
Authors retain copyright and grant the Journal of Geophysics right of first publication, with the work two years after publication simultaneously licensed under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 4.0 License that allows others to share the work (with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal), except for commercial purposes and for creating derivatives.
Authors can enter into separate, additional, but non-commercial contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository, but not publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal.
Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) before and during the submission process, as that can lead to productive exchanges, as well as earlier and greater citation of published work (See The Effect of Open Access).
This journal is one of a handful of scholarly journals that publish original scientific works under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 - the only Creative Commons license affording the authors' intellectual property absolute worldwide protection.
Journal of Geophysics is published under the scholar-publishers model, meaning authors do not surrender their copyright to us. Instead, and unlike corporate publishers like Elsevier or Springer Nature that resell copyright to third-parties for up to $80,000 (per paper, per transaction!), the Journal of Geophysics authors share copyright equally with this journal.
Therefore, all the proceeds from reselling copyright to third parties get shared to equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author). Under the Berne Convention, this protection is an inheritable right that lasts for as long as the rightsholder lives + 50 years.
By submitting to this journal, the lead author, on behalf of all co-authors, grants permission to this journal to represent all co-authors in negotiating copyright sales and collecting proceeds. The lead author should negotiate with his/her co-authors the modalities of distributing the lead author's portion of the proceeds. Usually, this is per pre-agreed percentage of each co-author's contribution to creating the copyrighted work. (more...)
