Precession occurs as the result of the gravitational force between the Sun and moon having an effect on Earth’s orbit. This process is widely accepted as a major cause of climate oscillation. Earth’s axis shifts between a tilt of 22.1° and 24.5° and back again, taking approximately 41,000 years to complete a full rotation. Earth’s current tilt is at 23.44°.
New discoveries identify a strong connection between the Earth’s outer core, mantle plumes, and warming oceans. An additional surmise suggest the growing equatorial bulge occurring as a result of various external sources, is a triggering mechanism which sets in motion the ebb and flow of convection which Earth uses to establish its ambient spatial and temporal balance.
Ongoing studies supported by the NSF (National Science Foundation) indicate a connection between submarine troughs (rifts), Earth’s mantle, and Earth’s outer core. Furthermore, new research indicates the shifting of magnetic flux via Earth’s magnetic field, is allowing a significant increase of cosmic rays and solar winds to enter our atmosphere and affecting Earth’s magnetic dipole.
As a living entity, Earth fights for its survival. If internal or external events begin to throw Earth out of balance i.e. orbital tilt, or decrease in the protective magnetic field – it begins to correct itself. As a result of overheating, there has been an increase of activity around submarine caldera’s and volcanoes many of which are located on or near subduction zones, rifts, and trenches.
Increase Charged Particles → Decreased Magnetic Field → Increase Outer Core Convection → Increase of Mantle Plumes → Increase in Earthquake and Volcanoes → Cools Mantle and Outer Core → Return of Outer Core Convection (Mitch Battros – July 2012)
The hot core of Earth leads to the ascent of superheated viscous rocks (magma) – taking the form of a vertical river with large bubbles called ‘mantle plumes.’ These plumes originate at the core-mantle boundary and make their way up to the surface of Earth. This process mediates the heat flux out of Earth’s core and in turn modifies the generator of the geomagnetic field. As a side note – this process is what created the island of Hawaii, Iceland, and several islands or small continents came into existence.
An unfortunate consequence of warming oceans we will continue to witness various forms of extreme weather. When troughs, subduction zones and rifts become destabilized as a result of convection, we will also see an increase of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes occur.
