The History of the History of the Martian Dynamo Generated Magnetic Field as Implied by the Results of 2D and 3D Convection Calculations
The history of the martian dynamo generated magnetic field is calculated using 2D and 3D mantle convection models. It is found that the magnetic field could be a relatively recent phenomenon with dynamo action starting at about 2 Ga b.p. and operating for another Ga.
