High speed wind
- Interesting report David.
As you know, I postulate that the solar wind commences "Doran waves".
But these low frequency large scale waves must have entry near the
magnetic poles where the isobars are close and the convection low--
because a strike will mess up the signal.
Speed, pressure and volume all in the end equate to electrical
current. The number that seems to correlate largely w/ "weather"
most, just as a causual observer, is the volume. What do you think?
The SOI has been positive strongly now for 5 days. There is a
tropical storm forming near OZ.
SSTs have switched toward a more La Nina condition but in El Nino 1
and 2 the several weeks of flaring you have described have caused a
more nuetral condition--which is interesting to me because I think
that ENSO is not just about SSTs but about direction of current (read
SOI) and the amount of induction Doran waves experiance, but also a
biological aspect of conductivity, such that an upwelling of
nutrients that occurs from a cold anomaly would bring a food chain
about that impacts conductivity. So that the flip to warming type
EMF conditions, IOW conditions with more cirrus enhancement, would
occur BEFORE SSTs warm.
Crazy complex and posutlation, speculation, I know, but I have been
looking at some pretty sophisticated data from NOAA. Now, SSTs along
the SW coast, in the GOC, clearly now have warmed. So much drought
caused so little biological enhancement from the Colorado, and the
rest of the hydrology, that, IMHO, the ocean cooled enough on the
surface to cause upwelling. Upwelling led to biological nutrients
becoming available for the surface microbrial activity, and
conductivity improved--biologically, despite the poor flow from the
Colorado. Combining this with a trend in ENSO and that flaring/CME
you have well described in the past few weeks resulted in the waves
thar gaves us the Nor'easters and finally some precip to drought
starved Arizona. In Northern Arizona they have been getting as much
snow as anyone--many feet of it.
With that snow and the reversal of conditions in the GOC--it will be
interesting to watch the tornado season as it unfolds in the next two
months. The W. GOM is very cold anomaly and there is a black algae
patch in the E. GOM now to go with very warm SSTs after weeks of
streaming clouds from that spot that seem to run a Doran wave over
Florida and even impacts the NE . . . when the storm pulses are
larger and producing the Nor'easters the pulse just goes a little
more north . . .

about a corbon copy of yesterday. No significant flares, solar wind
speed in the low 400's, just waiting for the next round of high speed
solar wind in a couple of days.

activity and short-term weather, although I will admit, I have seen
some strong correlations between the two. Perhaps coincidence, or
perhaps not. My problem is that I don't see how a solar wind that is
usually at most 10 protons/cc can have much effect. That is a tiny
amnount of electrical charge. Now granted, it can manifest itself by
causing enough of a cascade of electons down to the poles to light up
the skies. Nevertheless, I still don't understand how that's supposed
to equate to cloud enhancement or storm intensity.

Earth-directed, in a while. What we have been seeing is high speed
solar wind from coronal holes. Although, I guess for your purposes,
it ends up having the same effect.
