|Title:||The Sun-Earth connect 3: lessons from the periodicities of deep time influencing sea-level change and marine extinctions in the geological record||Contributor(s):||Baker, Robert G (author); Flood, Peter G (author)||Publication Date:||2015||Open Access:||Yes||DOI:||10.1186/s40064-015-0942-6||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/18798||Abstract:||A number of papers since Rampino and Stothers published in 'Science' 1984 have reported common periodicities in a wide range of climate, geomagnetic, tectonic and biological proxies, including marine extinctions. Single taper and multitaper spectral analysis of marine fluctuations between the Late Cretaceous and the Miocene replicates a number of the published harmonics. Whereas these common periodicities have been argued to have a galactic origin, this paper presents an alternative fractal model based on large scale fluctuations of the magnetic field of the Sun. The fluctuations follow a self-similar matrix of periodicities and the solutions of the differential equation allow for models to be constructed predicting extreme events for solar emissions. A comparison to major Phanerozoic extinction, climate and geomagnetic events, captured in the geological record, show a striking loop symmetry summarised in major 66 Ma irradiance and electromagnetic pulses from the Sun.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||SpringerPlus, 4(1), p. 1-19||Publisher:||SpringerPlus||Place of Publication:||Heidelberg, Germany||ISSN:||2193-1801||Field of Research (FOR):||040104 Climate Change Processes||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||960303 Climate Change Models||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 76
