Re: Earth's weakening magnetic field/solar storms

Thanks Lisa, fingers crossed it won't happen until we can get our act sorted out and will be able to protect ourselves from such an event.

Re: Earth's weakening magnetic field/solar storms

Hi Lisa,

What do you think the chances are of another Carrington Event occurring?

Coronal holes

Hi, I've been on a forum that discusses all things related to climate and solar activity. One of the scientists on that forum said that coronal holes are the 'corpses of dead sunspots'. Is that correct?

Forbush Decrease

I've been reading about the 'Forbush Decrease', which occurs before and during a CME. I just wondered if this phenomenon could, (or is being) be used to predict the occurrence of a large CME?

Again, thanks for all your useful info. :-)

Re: Earth's weakening magnetic field/solar storms

I have another question which is most probably totally off the wall, and please feel free to ignore it. :-) But is there any possibility that solar activity could cause Earth's mag field to reverse, and are reversals or magnetic excursions on Earth more likely to happen when solar activity is low?
