NEW INTERPRETATION OF THE EARTH’S MAGNETIC FIELD EFFECTS’ ON LIFE
The relationships of the Earth’s magnetic field intensity and time (the past 320 years) for many locations around the world are obtained, based on the IGRF-13 mathematical model. The results showed that each location on the earth surface has its magnetic intensity relation with time that reflects local variations. The sudden changes (magnetic anomalies) in the Earth’s magnetic field with time are natural phenomena, which are different from place to another. These magnetic anomalies are investigated for possible relationship to the historical records of the influenza pandemic outbreaks. The results showed clear congruences between the Earth’s magnetic anomalies and influenza outbreaks times. The congruences become clearer when comparing the highest magnetic anomaly intensity and the first outbreak location of the influenza pandemic. This is true for the recorded historical data since 1890 AD. It is not known how the changes in Earth’s magnetic field affect the virus’s outbreaks or evolution, but there is a clear relation that needs detailed studies.
