(Greek: -etikos, an adjective suffix meaning "pertaining to, of the nature of" for nouns ending in -esis)
Relating to the geometry of curved surfaces.
2. Having properties, or characteristics, of geomagnetism.
The study of the sources, configurations, and changes in the earth's magnetic field and the study and interpretation of the remaining magnetism in rocks as a result of the earth's magnetic field when the rocks were formed which is known as paleomagnetism.
The intensity of the magnetic field at the earth's surface is approximately 0.32 gauss at the equator and 0.62 gauss at the north pole.
A gauss equivalent to 1 maxwell per square centimeter and a maxwell is equivalent to the flux that produces one abvolt in a one-turn circuit when the flux is reduced to zero at a uniform rate in one second; while a flux is the electric or magnetic field lines of force that traverse a given cross-sectional area.
2. Activating sugar so as to maintain the sugar level of the blood.
3. Tending to mobilize glucose; usually evidenced by a reduction of the glycogen stores in the tissues to produce an increase in the concentration of glucose circulating in the blood.
2. Resulting from the magnetic properties of a spinning, electrically charged particle.
