These are the keypoints of a related JGR Planet publication:
1) We model Mercury's internal magnetic field from MESSENGER data with spherical harmonics.
2) Our core field model contains non-axisymmetric features from which we make inferences of Mercury's internal structure.
3) We estimate Mercury's inner core radius of ~500-660 km and a corresponding thickness of a top stratified layer of about 880-500 km.
