On July 9th, Professor Valentina Zharkova presented the results of a new model of the Sun’s solar cycle at the National Astronomy. The results show unprecedentedly accurate predictions of irregularities within the Sun’s 11-year heartbeat. Predictions are made based on the Sun’s “11-year heartbeat”. This is a pattern of solar activity that fluctuates over a cycle that lasts from 10-12 years. Before this new model was created, scientists have had a hard time predicting the results of these solar cycles. Using dynamo effects that work in two layers of the Sun, the scientists with the Royal Astronomical Society have determined that in the 2030’s, solar activity will fall by 60 percent.
Zharkova said that, “We found magnetic wave components appearing in pairs, originating in two different layers in the Sun’s interior. They both have a frequency of approximately 11 years, although this frequency is slightly different, and they are offset in time. Over the cycle, the waves fluctuate between the northern and southern hemispheres of the Sun. Combining both waves together and comparing to real data for the current solar cycle, we found that our predictions showed an accuracy of 97%.”
If the results play out per expectations- which their advanced model gives a probability of 97%, then Earth will experience another small ice age like the Maunder Minimum. During this time, when the solar activity was so low, the northern hemisphere especially, was stuck in a bitterly cold series of winters between 1645 and 1715.
Does this mean that in approximately 15 years there will be a ‘mini ice age’? If so, Plan, Prepare, Survive.
