[A]round May 8, 1998, there were a series of large, solar
disturbances that caused a new radiation belt to form in the so-
called "slot region" between the inner and outer van Allen belts. The
new belt eventually disappeared once the solar activity subsided.
For SST changes, see:
Electrical change equates to a thermal change.
BTW, interesting sat pic relative to the drought in the west and the
Colorado River poor flow's impact on the CONDUCTIVITIES in the GOC.
Note large scale low freq ion waves will produce conditions which
will NOT pick up dust. IOWs charge it and draw it to convective
regions and cause it to be washed out, plus dust aids in cloud
nucleation, so a minimal of Doran wave activity is going bring
moisture to a region and end the dust. Gaia conditions in the GOC
are obviously still quite poor. John McCain needs to take his "CAP"
The best way to follow ENSO, the SOI, and EMF activity at the present
time is to go to this link and watch how movements of the SOI and
ENSO correlate to strike activity. Add solar particle monitoring,
and it is really even more of an interesting watch:
