Experts disagree 
on strength of Solar Cycle 24

 

 

29 Apr 07 - This week in Boulder, Colorado, a group of leading solar
physicists met to compare and discuss their predictions for the next solar
maximum. On April 25th they held a press conference and announced ... a
split decision. One camp holds that Solar Cycle 24 will be intense and peak in 2011; a second group predicts a much weaker maximum in 2012.

I tend to agree with those who call for a much weaker maximum. I base this on articles published by Dr. Theodor Landscheidt of the Schroeter Institute for Research in Cycles of Solar Activity in Waldmuenchen, Germany. The late Dr. Landscheidt was a giant in the field of climatology.

Here's what Dr. Landscheidt said: "The current 11-year sunspot cycle 23  with its considerably weaker activity seems to be a first indication of the new trend, especially as it was predicted on the basis of solar motion cycles two decades ago. As to temperature, only El Niņo periods should interrupt the downward trend, but even El Niņos should become less frequent and strong."
