Re: Solar Activity Report for 4/28/02
- Queensland reports:
27-Apr-2002 1013.96 1009.45 15.30 -3.06 -0.54
28-Apr-2002 1012.91 1009.45 7.70 -2.69 -0.51
29-Apr-2002 1010.84 1009.65 -8.60 -2.83 -0.67
Of interest is the flux from the 15.30 back to an El Nino wind on the
28th. I wish I knew more about what is going on with ocean currents
because this doesn't seem to match your flaring report where
electrical activity from the sun corresponded to El Nino winds--and
visa versa. This seems like the first time this has happened. OTOH,
that 15.30 is the largest La Nina reading we have had and perhaps
this is a rebound effect of the winds . . .
