How does the Earth’s magnetic field work?



  1. 0 Votes

    Earth’s magnetic field is caused by electric currents in the liquid outer core. Since the iron in the core is so hot, and also because it moves through convection, the magnetic field is sustained. It is basically similar to a bar magnet. The reach of the field extends thousands of kilometers into space. You can read more about it at the link below.
