Paul Roberts' research contributions are remarkable in their diversity, depth and international appeal. Papers from the Paul Roberts' Anniversary meeting at the University of Exeter are presented in this volume. Topics include geomagnetism and dynamos, fluid mechanics and MHD, superfluidity, mixed phase regions, mean field electrodynamics and the Earth's inner core. An incisive commentary of the papers puts the work of Paul Roberts into historical context. Magnetohydrodynamics and the Earth's Core provides a valuable source of reference for graduates and researchers working in this area of geoscience.Because the melting temperature of core material increases with pressure more rapidly Ihan does the temperature along the adiabat , the core presents ... TW boundary condition (2) does maintain an Earth-like field, the age of Eartha#39;s nner core may be considerably less than the age of the Earth iself Ot course, ... This value is small enough that ft|C remains relatively constant on a time scale of decades.
