Newell: Climate follows Hale solar sunspot cycle
Posted: August 1, 2011 by tallbloke in climate, Solar physics, solar system dynamics
Here’s an old 1989 article from New Scientist showing a correlation between the ‘double sunspot cycle’ – the Hale cycle, and night time marine air temperatures in the southern hemisphere.
Of particular interest is the observation that there were two consecutive 11 year Schwabe cycles with the same polarity in the late 1800’s, coincident with high temperatures. I’m having trouble finding any other references to this event, can anyone help?
