    Does the moltin core of the earth have an Effect (Affect) on Gravity or Magnatism or both? It appears to me that there is something linking the two together but I can not determine just what it is. Thanks for information. Joe L. Ogan

    I believe the molten core is responsible for the magnetosphere of the planet, but it has nothing to do with the gravity of the planet.

    Three requirements for a geodynamo.

    Liquid iron outer core.
    A heat source, the primordial heat from the formation of the Earth.
    A spinning Earth to create the Coriolis effect.

    Movement of mass in the interior of the Earth can effect precession and obilquity. Gravity measurements can indicate plumes, rising or sinking areas of mass. These plumes are responsible for changes in the Earth's magnetic field.

    The inner core is solid, but the outer core is molten.

    Solid and amorphous, isn't it? I thought it solid like the tummy of a glacier.
