Weather and Space Weather

We are in a period of solar decline.  That is what the Grand Solar Minimum is all about, less sun and colder.

This is what solar instability looks like on your space dashboard

We are in an unstable atmospheric condition.  It will be in yellow on your graphs,  Today and over the next several days we may ascend into the red, of geomagnetic storm territory which can impact everything from volcanoes, earthquakes, health, to our power grid.

Finally, we have the last piece of the puzzle explaining how particles from space affect the climate on Earth.  

The missing link between exploding stars, clouds, and climate on Earth

Breakthrough in the understanding of how cosmic rays from supernovae can influence Earth's cloud cover and thereby climate.

The study reveals how atmospheric ions, produced by the energetic cosmic rays raining down through the atmosphere, helps the growth and formation of cloud condensation nuclei -- the seeds necessary for forming clouds in the atmosphere.

The study reveals how atmospheric ions, produced by the energetic cosmic rays raining down through the atmosphere, helps the growth and formation of cloud condensation nuclei -- the seeds necessary for forming clouds in the atmosphere. When the ionization in the atmosphere changes, the number of cloud condensation nuclei changes affecting the properties of clouds. More cloud condensation nuclei mean more clouds and a colder climate, and vice versa. Since clouds are essential for the amount of Solar energy reaching the surface of Earth, the implications can be significant for our understanding of why climate has varied in the past and also for future climate changes.

Cloud condensation nuclei can be formed by the growth of small molecular clusters called aerosols. It has until now been assumed that additional small aerosols would not grow and become cloud condensation nuclei since no mechanism was known to achieve this. The new results reveal, both theoretically and experimentally, how interactions between ions and aerosols can accelerate the growth by adding material to the small aerosols and thereby help them survive to become cloud condensation nuclei. It gives a physical foundation to the large body of empirical evidence showing that Solar activity plays a role in variations in Earth's climate. For example, the Medieval Warm Period around the year 1000 AD and the cold period in the Little Ice Age 1300-1900 AD both fits with changes in Solar activity.

"Finally, we have the last piece of the puzzle explaining how particles from space affect the climate on Earth. It gives an understanding of how changes caused by Solar activity or by supernova activity can change the climate," says Henrik Svensmark, from DTU Space at the Technical University of Denmark, lead author of the study. Co-authors are senior researcher Martin Bødker Enghoff (DTU Space), Professor Nir Shaviv (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), and Jacob Svensmark, (University of Copenhagen).  Read More


Solar activity has a direct impact on Earth's cloud cover 

A team of scientists from the National Space Institute at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Space) and the Racah Institute of Physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has linked large solar eruptions to changes in Earth's cloud cover in a study based on over 25 years of satellite observations.

The solar eruptions are known to shield Earth's atmosphere from . However, the new study, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Space Physics, shows that the global cloud cover is simultaneously reduced, supporting the idea that cosmic rays are important for . The eruptions cause a reduction in cloud fraction of about 2 percent, corresponding to roughly a billion tonnes of liquid water disappearing from the atmosphere.

Since clouds are known to affect global temperatures on longer timescales, the present investigation represents an important step in the understanding of clouds and climate variability.

"Earth is under constant bombardment by particles from space called . Violent eruptions at the Sun's surface can blow these cosmic rays away from Earth for about a week. Our study has shown that when the cosmic rays are reduced in this way, there is a corresponding reduction in Earth's cloud cover. Since clouds are an important factor in controlling the temperature on Earth, our results may have implications for ", explains lead author on the study Jacob Svensmark of DTU.

Very energetic particles

These particles generate electrically charged molecules—ions—in Earth's atmosphere. Ions have been shown in the laboratory to enhance the formation of aerosols, which can serve as seeds for the formation of the cloud drops that make up a cloud. Whether this happens in the atmosphere, or only in the laboratory is a topic that has been investigated and debated for years.

When the large blow away the galactic cosmic rays before they reach Earth, they cause a reduction in atmospheric ions of up to about 20 to -30 percent over a week. So if ions affect cloud formation, it should be possible to observe a decrease in cloud cover during events when the Sun blows away cosmic rays, and this is precisely what is done in this study.  Read more

An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and Its Implications for United States National Security

October 2003

Imagining the Impossible

The purpose of this report is to imagine the unthinkable – to push the boundaries of current research on climate change so we may better understand the potential implications on United States national security. We have interviewed leading climate change scientists, conducted additional research, and reviewed several iterations of the scenario with these experts. The scientists support this project, but caution that the scenario depicted is extreme …created a climate change scenario that would challenge United States national security in ways that should be considered immediately.  This cold period can last from 100-1000 years as it did 8,200 years ago.  If it goes into a Younger Dryas event, we will have over 13,000 years of ice.

Winter storms and winds intensify, amplifying the impacts of the changes. Western Europe and the North Pacific experience enhanced winds.

The report explores how such an abrupt climate change scenario could potentially de-stabilize the geo-political environment, leading to skirmishes, battles, and even war due to resource constraints such as :

1) Food shortages due to decreases in net global agricultural production 2) Decreased availability and quality of freshwater in key regions due to shifted precipitation patters, causing more frequent floods and droughts 3) Disrupted access to energy supplies due to extensive sea ice and storminess  Read the report


Ancient Earth’s Weakened Magnetic Field May Have Driven Mass Extinction

Oxygen escape from the Earth during geomagnetic reversals: Implications to mass extinction 


  • Geomagnetic field reversal substantially weakens the protection of the atmosphere.
  • Solar wind energizes more oxygen ions to escape when the geomagnetic field is weakened.
  • Oxygen escape may explain the drop in atmospheric levels during the mass extinction.
  • The causal relation between reversal and mass extinction should be “many-to-one.”
  • The simulated oxygen escape rate based on knowledge of Mars supports our hypothesis.  Read More

The Role of Geomagnetic Field Intensity in Late Quaternary Evolution of Humans and Large Mammals 

When this paper says evolution, think radiation-induced mutations where some species die while others thrive, and there is the possibility of news species.

It has long been speculated that biological evolution was influenced by ultraviolet radiation (UVR) reaching the Earth's surface, despite imprecise knowledge of the timing of both UVR flux and evolutionary events. The past strength of Earth's dipole field provides a proxy for UVR flux because of its role in maintaining stratospheric ozone. The timing of Quaternary evolutionary events have become better constrained by fossil finds, improved radiometric dating, use of dung fungi as proxies for herbivore populations, and improved ages for nodes in human phylogeny from human mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosomes. The demise of Neanderthals at ~41 ka can now be closely tied to the intensity minimum associated with the Laschamp magnetic excursion, and the survival of anatomically modern humans can be attributed to differences in the aryl hydrocarbon receptor that has a key role in the evolutionary response to UVR flux. Fossil occurrences and dung‐fungal proxies in Australia indicate that episodes of Late Quaternary extinction of mammalian megafauna occurred close to the Laschamp and Blake magnetic excursions. Fossil and dung fungal evidence for the age of the Late Quaternary extinction in North America (and Europe) coincides with a prominent decline in geomagnetic field intensity at ~13 ka. Over the last ~200 kyr, the phylogeny based on mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosomes in modern humans yields nodes and bifurcations in evolution corresponding to geomagnetic intensity minima, which supports the proposition that UVR reaching Earth's surface influenced mammalian evolution with the loci of extinction controlled by the geometry of stratospheric ozone depletion.  Read more


CO2 Follows Temperature


Volcanoes and Earthquakes

As we are experiencing this sun-earth coupling with particles flooding into our atmosphere with the possibility of going into geomagnetic storm conditions similar to your winter storm advisory, everyone is holding their breath.  During solar conditions such as these, violent volcanoes will erupt:  ancient, dormant, and active-those contain silica.  Terrifyingly large earthquakes will begin to shake.  We wait for the big ones as we watch the pre-game show events.

Wildfire Risk Report, new prediction methods

As the crust of the earth heats up as magma bubbles to the surface and the saturation of nanoparticles that are explosive, we will see new and increased wildfire threats.

The 2019 Wildfire Risk Report, released in September, found over 775,000 homes at extreme risk of wildfire damage in the western United States. Estimated reconstruction cost for these homes tops $221 billion. This report evaluates potential exposure of residential properties to wildfire in a defined region. Not surprisingly, California and Texas top the list of states in the high- and extreme-risk categories. Three metropolitan regions in California see 42 percent of residences at high-to-extreme wildfire risk. This is due to population density as well as the expanding residential spread into wildland-urban interface areas. Data from 1985-2018 show an increase in the amount of acreage burned when compared to the overall number of fires. 2018 was another record-breaker with 8.7 million acres burned, the sixth-highest total in over 100 years of data. The 13 states in this report have the highest history of acreage burned and the highest loss of life and property, and also possess the highest probability of future property loss due to wildfire. Planners and emergency managers may have a new tool in their toolbox to help forecast how severe a wildfire may be. Using modeling based on several key variables, a new machine learning algorithm can help forecast whether a wildfire will be small, medium, or large. Researchers tested this new modeling technique using Alaska data from 2001-2017. The model predicted 40 percent of ignitions would lead to large fires; ultimately, they accounted for 75 percent of the total burned area. They found this model outperformed other algorithms, but that there was still some overprediction in some cases. If refined to the point where it is more reliable, this kind of modeling can be useful to those in charge of allocating firefighting resources, declaring evacuation warnings, and can have an impact on other related fields such as ecology and land management.

Surviving the Blizzard

Logan man survives his 'worst night' after being caught in a blizzard in Swan Flats area



Have you ever wondered how the United Nations came up with the idea of geogrid the earth?  The grid originated from the US Intelligence Services.  Once again, the story comes from the Smithsonian.  How many other secrets lie within those walls? Each story they do release is a controlled fashion engineering a specific narrative. The release of this extensive investigative report is not coincidental. This is a fascinating story that every person should read. 

Entering German cities within days of their capture by Allied forces, the special Army-led team slipped into bomb-ravaged Cologne in early March 1945. (The National Archives; Bettman Archives)

The Untold Story of the Secret Mission to Seize Nazi Map Data

How a covert U.S. Army intelligence unit canvassed war-torn Europe, capturing intelligence with the incalculable strategic value

he fighting for Aachen was fierce. American planes and artillery pounded the Nazi defenses for days. Tanks then rolled into the narrow streets of the ancient city, the imperial seat of Charlemagne, which Hitler had ordered defended at all costs. Bloody building-to-building combat ensued until, finally, on October 21, 1944, Aachen became the first German city to fall into Allied hands.

Rubble still clogged the streets when U.S. Army Maj. Floyd W. Hough and two of his men arrived in early November. “The city appears to be 98% destroyed,” Hough wrote in a memo to Washington. A short, serious man of 46 with receding red hair and wire-rimmed glasses, Hough had a degree in civil engineering from Cornell, and before the war, he led surveying expeditions in the American West for the U.S. government and charted the rainforests of South America for oil companies. Now he was the leader of a military intelligence team wielding special blue passes, issued by Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force, that allowed Hough and his team to move freely in the combat zone. Their mission was such a closely guarded secret that one member later recalled he was told not to open the envelope containing his orders until two hours after his plane departed for Europe.

In Aachen, their target was a library.

HOUGHTEAM, as the unit was known, was made up of 19 carefully selected individuals. Four were highly educated civilians: an engineer, a geographer who had worked as a map curator at the University of Chicago, a linguist who spoke five languages, and the dapper son of an prominent Kentucky family who’d grown up mostly in Europe as the son of a brigadier general posted to various capitals as a military attaché. There were also ten enlisted men. One was a Japanese interpreter on loan from the Office of Strategic Services, the spy agency precursor to the CIA. Others had been through the secret Military Intelligence Training Center at Camp Ritchie, Maryland. Among the Ritchie Boys, as they were known, were European immigrants who had fled to the United States to escape Nazi persecution. At Camp Ritchie, they received training in interrogation and other psychological operations. Their job was to question European civilians about the movement of enemy troops, translate captured documents and interrogate prisoners of war. For the refugees among them, it was a chance to leverage their language skills and cultural familiarity to defeat the enemy that had uprooted their lives.
