On the problem of plume physics

© V.V. Kuznetsov

Under the Hot Earth concept being developed by the author the physically consistent phenomenological model of plume intrinsic to geodynamics and the Earth evolution is proposed. Here the Hot Earth concept main theses relating to plume physics are set out briefly. Problems discussed are why and where a plume can origin, its coupling with geomagnetic field reversals frequency and physics of superplume-superchrone coupling. Hydrogen functioning in plume arising and transporting as well as its importance for the Earth core and mantle substance features are being studied.
