Scientists found iron snow in the earth’s core, The inner core of the earth is hot, under heavy pressure and covered with snow. This arises from new research that can help scientists better understand the forces that affect the entire planet.
Snow consists of small pieces of iron, much heavier than snowflakes on earth, falling from the melted outer core and piles in the inner core. This creates a pile of up to 200 miles that covers the inner core.
That picture sounded like a strange winter in Wonderland. However, the scientists who led the study said that the formation of rocks in the volcano is very similar.
The earth’s core cannot be scanned. Scientists study it by recording and analyzing signals from seismic waves (a type of energy wave) that pass through the earth.
However, the difference between the latest seismic wave data and the values that can be expected from the current Earth’s core model has raised questions. Waves move slower than expected when they cross the base of the outer core and faster than expected when they move through the eastern hemisphere of the inner core.
This study provides a snow snow core to explain this deviation. Scientists suspect that there was a mash between the inner and outer nuclei in the early 1960s, but the prevailing knowledge of heat and pressure conditions at the center of the core invalidates this theory.
New data from experiments with materials such as nuclear, carried out by Zhang and taken from recent scientific literature, shows that crystallization is possible and about 15% of the lowest outer core can consist of iron-based crystals. They eventually fall into the liquid outer core and settle in the solid inner core.
The inner core boundaries are not simple and smooth surfaces that can affect thermal conductivity and core convection, the researchers said.
This paper compares the removal of iron particles with a process that occurs in the magma chamber closer to the surface of the earth, which contains crystallized minerals from melt and glitter.
The so-called cumulative rocks are made in the magma chamber by mineral compression. In the Earth’s core, iron densification contributes to the growth of the inner core and the contraction of the outer core.
Given the influence of the nucleus on phenomena that affect the entire planet, from the generation of its magnetic field to the heat radiation that drives the movement of tectonic plates, a better understanding of its composition and behavior can help understand how this larger process works.
Linking model predictions with abnormal observations allows us to draw conclusions about the possible composition of liquid nuclei and possibly link this information to the conditions prevailing at the time the planet was created, the researchers said.
The initial conditions are an important factor in making Earth the planet we know.
