Earth's Magnetic Field  


This is a 64 minute seminar during which nuclear physicist, Dr Russell Humphreys describes how paleomagnetic research indicates our field can not be more than 10,000 years old.  Problems with the dynamo model of the earth’s Magnetic Field are presented, as is the accuracy with which his model predicted magnetic strengths of other planets.

D. Russell Humphreys, Ph.D.

Dr Humphreys was awarded his Ph.D. in physics from Louisiana State University in 1972. For the next 6 years he worked in the High Voltage Laboratory of General Electric Company, designing and inventing equipment and researching high-voltage phenomena. While there, he received a U.S. patent and one of Industrial Research Magazine’s IR-100 awards.

Beginning in 1979 he worked for Sandia National Laboratories (New Mexico) in nuclear physics, geophysics, pulsed-power research, and theoretical atomic and nuclear physics. In 1985, he began working with Sandia’s ‘Particle Beam Fusion Project’, and was co-inventor of special laser-triggered ‘Rimfire’ high-voltage switches, now coming into wider use. The last few years at Sandia had seen greater emphasis on theoretical nuclear physics and radiation hydrodynamics in an effort to help produce the world’s first lab-scale thermonuclear fusion. Besides gaining another U.S. patent, Dr Humphreys has been given two awards from Sandia, including an Award for Excellence for contributions to light ion-fusion target theory.

Dr Humphreys has retired from Sandia and now works with the Institute for Creation Research.
