Two people sent me links when this story broke today. It obviously belongs in the Guide. I mean, it's not every day that a world-changing phenomenon is named for your website's founder...

Suggestions welcome: I am not a palaeologist, nor am I an astrophysicist. Links, corrections, wording, any more information?

Thanks for writing this up - the Edited Guide needs this Entry indeed smiley - ok

It reads well, and there was just one thing I wondered about when I read through:

"In that time, the Earth's magnetic field dropped drastically. The reversed field was only 75% of the normal field. During the transition, it dropped to 5% of normal." - I wonder if this would read better chronologically - "In that time, the Earth's magnetic field strength dropped drastically. During the transition, it dropped to 5% of normal. The reversed field strength was only 25% of the normal field strength. " http://phys.org/news/2012-10-extremely-reversal-geomagnetic-field-climate.html
