View Full Version : Mini Ice age - or so they say...

A new model of the Sun's solar cycle is producing unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun's 11-year heartbeat. The model draws on dynamo effects in two layers of the Sun, one close to the surface and one deep within its convection zone. Predictions from the model suggest that solar activity will fall by 60 per cent during the 2030s to conditions last seen during the 'mini ice age' that began in 1645.
...........
"We found magnetic wave components appearing in pairs, originating in two different layers in the Sun's interior. They both have a frequency of approximately 11 years, although this frequency is slightly different, and they are offset in time. Over the cycle, the waves fluctuate between the northern and southern hemispheres of the Sun. Combining both waves together and comparing to real data for the current solar cycle, we found that our predictions showed an accuracy of 97%," said Zharkova.
..........
"In cycle 26, the two waves exactly mirror each other -- peaking at the same time but in opposite hemispheres of the Sun. Their interaction will be disruptive, or they will nearly cancel each other. We predict that this will lead to the properties of a 'Maunder minimum'," said Zharkova. "Effectively, when the waves are approximately in phase, they can show strong interaction, or resonance, and we have strong solar activity. When they are out of phase, we have solar minimums. When there is full phase separation, we have the conditions last seen during the Maunder minimum, 370 years ago."


Solar activity predicted to fall 60% in 2030s, to 'mini ice age' levels: Sun driven by double dynamo (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/07/150709092955.htm)

So no change for Canada then.

It just means that after the Great San Andreas Quake, my now beachfront property will freeze over for awhile.

Doofa could wear a wig? He's svelte, you know.

Great, so double influx of immigrants from Canada and Mexico. Non-global warming sucks. Build the wall now.

I'd go further north before ever coming down to your country, Ice Age or not.
