Research from the University of Northampton that says these are "unprecedentedly accurate predictions" based on solar activity.

www.telegraph.co.uk...


The earth is 15 years from a "mini ice-age" that will cause bitterly cold winters during which rivers such as the Thames freeze over, scientists have predicted.

Solar researchers at the University of Northumbria have created a new model of the sun's activity which they claim produces "unprecedentedly accurate predictions".

They said fluid movements within the sun, which are thought to create 11-year cycles in the weather, will converge in such a way that temperatures will fall dramatically in the 2030s.

Solar activity will fall by 60 per cent as two waves of fluid "effectively cancel each other out", according to Prof Valentina Zharkova.

In a presentation to the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno, she said the result would be similar to freezing conditions of the late 17th century.

“[In the cycle between 2030 and around 2040] the two waves exactly mirror each other – peaking at the same time but in opposite hemispheres of the sun," she said.

"Their interaction will be disruptive, or they will nearly cancel each other.

"We predict that this will lead to the properties of a ‘Maunder minimum'".

Maunder minimum, indicating low sunspot activity, was the name given to the period between 1645 and 1715, when Europe and North America experienced very cold winters.

Hi absolute, it's a good subject, but it was started yesterday, Smurfy.

"unprecedentedly accurate predictions"

Is that better than super computer modeling?

A new spin on the weather to be.

Thanks, didn't see it, the new search function isn't great.

Depends on the amount of data entered into the supercomputing model. Sure NASA and NOAA have 1000s of servers in clusters chomping away on bits of data . However , it is only as good as what is put in. GIGO . Old fashioned term.

Yep, in fact the scenario has been talked about for around 5/6 years now by different research groups.

Back in the 70s everyone was told by 2000 there would be a ice age, oil would of run out, also gas and it was all mans fault. I believe there is a small ice age coming but its natural nothing to do with man, its just the world doing what the world does.

Fortunately we have warmed the earth enough to keep us safe.
