Psychological effects of CMEs (coronal mass ejections) are typically short lived and include headache, palpitations, mood swings, and feeling generally unwell. Chaotic or confused thinking, and erratic behaviors also increase. Since Tuesday’s solar flare was a double-whammy, it will be interesting to see whether reports of physical disturbances are more intense or more plentiful than during single solar plasma blasts.
Solar eruptions throw 10 billion kilograms, or 22 billion pounds, of solar plasma into space. If that number is hard to grasp, just think of it as ginormous. One to three flares are a daily occurrence on the sun but the waves of charged particles do not always visit our planet. Those that do reach us are both beauty and a possible beast.
Mostly it shows where it was noon, where the Sun was overhead. Flares only affect the day side of Earth. But yes, as I said, solar flares affect communications. That chart is a prediction of how radio waves are absorbed by the D region of the ionosphere.
And the rason for asking is that when they hit of you look at the image below s a bit of but say were the concentration of flare is at does that mean thats where flare hit?
Conditions in the D region of the ionosphere have a dramatic effect on high frequency (HF) communications and low frequency (LF) navigation systems. The global D Region Absorption Predictions (D-RAP) depicts the D region at high latitudes where it is driven by particles as well as low latitudes, where photons cause the prompt changes. This product merges all latitudes using appropriate displays, and is useful to customers from a broad base that includes emergency management, aviation and maritime users.
Do you think there is a correlation between massive cme's like the x28 in 2003 and global warming like the killer heat wave earlier that same year? Could they both have had a common agitator?
Thanks for the good thread phage.

Not a guru. I just find the scientific aspect interesting and happened to be asked to start this thread.
