LINKING SOLAR ACTIVITY TO COSMIC RAY FLUX

By ANTHONY WATTS
Lots of information and data sources here. Always great stuff by posters in the comments section

“Cosmic rays are energetic particles that originate in space and our sun and collide with particles as they zip through our atmosphere.”

THE QUESTION OF THE LAG IN TIME BETWEEN SOLAR ACTIVITY AND CHANGES TO GALACTIC COSMIC RAYS ( GCR )

Extracted from the comments section.
Leif Svalgaard says:

The cosmic modulation has a time shift of 6-12 months with respect to solar activity.
This is because it takes the solar wind that long to fill the heliosphere [ 100 AU * 4 days per AU ], so if solar ‘minimum’ were 6 months ago, we should only begin to see a decrease in CRs about now or in the next few months

  1. I have researched the correlation between cosmic ray flux and ozone depletion discovering a high statistical value in some years however I found it was often interrupted by a volcanic signal. This finding led me to investigate volcanic eruptions during Arctic winters. I am in the final process of finishing a paper on the Mechanism of the 2005 Augustine Eruption leading to SSW and Cyclogenesis. Therein I propose that this explosive event caused regional climate change by inducing a positive vorticity anomaly and huge energy release into Rossby Waves. This initial effect led to a deep trough in the atmospheric wave (jetstream) and caused meridional patterns which led to an SSW.

  2. Do you have a blog link where were myself and readers can follow your research?
    An interesting hypothesis for sure. I have seen some interesting patterns of SSW activity.
    Have a read here
    Karin Labitzke has lots of research on SSW
    http://strat-www.met.fu-berlin.de/labitzke/
    and Michele casati

    I have noted large surface lows/cyclones in the North pacific in winter can set SSW in progress as well
    Tallbloke wordpress has lots on volcanic and weather as well
