A universal theory of atmospheric eddy dynamics is presented which shows that the global geomagnetic field, atmospheric electric field, and weather systems are manifestations of a semipermanent scale-invariant hierarchical atmospheric eddy continuum. The scale-invariant energy structure for the atmospheric eddy continuum is documented and discussed. Quantitative equations are derived to show that the full continuum of atmospheric eddies exists as a unified whole and originates from buoyant energy supply from frictional turbulence at the planetary surface. Large eddy growth occurs from turbulence scale by the universal period doubling route to chaos.
