Naidu, PS (1975) Second-order statistical structure of geomagnetic field reversals. In: Journal of Geophysical Research, 80 (5). 803-806.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
From the autocorrelation function of geomagnetic polarity intervals, it is shown that the field reversal intervals are not independent but form a process akin to the Markov process, where the random input to the model is itself a moving average process. The input to the moving average model is, however, an independent Gaussian random sequence. All the parameters in this model of the geomagnetic field reversal have been estimated. In physical terms this model implies that the mechanism of reversal possesses a memory.
