Des fissures auraient été détectées dans le bouclier magnétique qui protège la planète

Des fissures auraient été détectées dans le bouclier magnétique qui protège la planète | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it

L’Agence spatiale européenne (ESA) a révélé les premiers résultats détaillés de l’étude sur les changements dans le champ magnétique de la Terre qui protège notre planète du rayonnement solaire, et les résultats ne sont pas encourageants.


Les trois sondes, qui ont été lancés l’automne dernier avec pour mission l’étude du champ magnétique, ont confirmé l’affaiblissement du champ magnétique , le changement le plus dramatique s’étant produit dans l’hémisphère occidental, suivant ce que l’ESA a rapporté lors d’une conférence à Copenhague. En général, bouclier magnétique de la Terre est affaibli de 10-15% suivant les estimations des scientifiques.

Le champ magnétique protège notre planète et fait dévier les vents solaire, c’est à dire, les particules chargées provenant du soleil. Sans cette protection, les particules détruisent la couche d’ozone qui protège la Terre des rayons ultraviolets nocifs, et la Terre serait une planète sans vie comme Mars.

Where Will The World's Water Conflicts Erupt?

Where Will The World's Water Conflicts Erupt? | Nature Animals humankind | Scoop.it

As the climate shifts, rivers will both flood and dry up more often, according to the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Shortages are especially likely in parts of the world already strapped for water, so political scientists expect feuds will become even more intense. To track disputes worldwide, researchers at Oregon State University spent a decade building a comprehensive database of international exchanges—-both conflicts and alliances—over shared water resources. They found that countries often begin disputes belligerently but ultimately reach peaceful agreements. Says Aaron Wolf, the geographer who leads the project, “For me the really interesting part is how even Arabs and Israelis, Indians and Pakistanis, are able to resolve their differences and find a solution.”

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, June 21, 2014 11:01 AM

Add water to geography education curriculum? You better believe it. The crisis of the 21st century is and will be water.  

Courtney Barrowman's curator insight, May 21, 2015 11:36 AM

summer reading KQ2: How have humans altered the Earth's environment?  Water Security

James Piccolino's curator insight, March 24, 10:01 AM
The idea of going to war over water is a scary one, but is still possible in an unfortunate future. After all there must have been a time when going to war over oil was a scary possibility and nothing more. Water being a necessity would surely make it more justified in the minds of many, but would lead to disaster down the line.
