Abstract
A better understanding of the dynamics of Earth's fluid outer core can be simply obtained by assuming that the fluid flow is purely toroidal near the core-mantle boundary (CMB). Such flow will be investigated in detail in order to find a main feature of the flow at the core surface. Based on the frozen-flux hypothesis and the purely toroidal assumption adopted here, we develop a computational method to calculate the horizontal velocity field of the flow. Taking data from magnetic models, such as DGRF-1990, IGRF-1995, and IGRF-2000 and using the velocity inversion equation, we have computed the core velocity for a dipole field case.
