A new paper is in the works from a group of mainstream solar physics theorists who work with dynamo models. It explores the possibility that the Sun’s dynamo is modulated by planetary motion – something we’ve been working on here at the talkshop for the last six years. It finds that the gravitational interaction of the motions of Venus, Earth and Jupiter (VEJ) could be involved with both the 11.07 and 22.14 Schwabe and Hale solar cycles.
I’m not going to post the paper yet, as it is still undergoing peer review at a major journal, but I thought it would be fun to provide a teaser. Here’s part of the bibliography. If you look at the top and bottom references, they are to papers by Nicola Scafetta and Ian Wilson which were published in our special edition of Pattern Recognition in Physics at the end of 2013.
It’s very heartening to see that despite the suppression of PRP by Martin Rasmussen at Copernicus (the innovative science unpublishers), and the slanderous attack by Anthony Watts and the WUWT pundits, our work is still generating interest in the mainstream solar physics community. Good science shines through the libel and censorship of Martin Rasmussen, Anthony Watts, Willis Eschenbach and Leif Svalgaard. Suck it up fellas.
