      <br><br><a href=http://puddle.mit.edu/~helen/oodc.html target=new>http://puddle.mit.edu/~helen/oodc.html</a> <br><br>There are two pictures of the earth from

      convection near the equator only occurs in the
      Meditteranean, near Italy. The Atlantic and the Med are warmer
      and more saline then other ocean bodies, and
      certainly climate around or near these eddies is very dry.
      With respect to the one in the Southern Ocean, it
      seems near the comma extension of Antarctica, were a
      current could cause an eddy, and also in a polar region
      where stratification by salinity would matter more. Do
      you think that these eddies have anything to do with
      the relative ocean salinity and temperatures of the
      places where they occur? The Med is the hottest and
      salitiest ocean, no? Do you think that this eddy existed
      when the Sahara wasn't a desert? What about the fact
      that the Sahara has expanded further into larger parts
      of Spain? Does that say anything about the eddy?

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
