JULY 10 2016/ -- UTC
ALERT! FURTHERON HIGH PROBABILITY OF MAJOR SUBDUCTION QUAKES!!

important notices >

20160504: I am very busy at the moment, Updates may therefore be delayed!

According to NASA, this 24th. 11 year sun spot cycle has probably a " twin peak"- the second in 2015. This project therefore will be prolongued.

THE 11 YEAR SUN SPOT CYCLE-

LAST MAXIMUM ACTIVITY IN: 2012/ 13 NEXT: APPR. in 2024

SOLAR AND TERRESTRIAL BLOG

- activities and major events-

ARCHIVE- AUGUST 2016

note: as the solar sun spot activity is decreasing now, less major events are expected at least in the next years. (next cycle minimum expected in 2019)

.Therefor, this project is also limited now to basic updates. In July 2014 I decided to update this page only after significant event and changes and to turn this page into an monthly page that will cover significant events and can be archived then in that form.

SOLAR ACTIVITY IN 2016:

   

<< x ray activity >> ( resp. the so called "x- ray background flux") which represents the highest but at all also only a small part of the spectrum of electromagnetic waves emitted by the Sun  dropped- as expected-constantly after the solar sun spot maximum in 2012 and was in the second half of 2016 almost constantly on the B-level.

A comparation with the x ray flux on the same day (< August 28 2016 ) 11 years ago ( 20050828 > ) shows that x- ray background flux during the same period in the last solar cycle 2005 was also mainly around the lower B level and so far not much higher than now.

Differently to 2016, in 2005, there were more fluctuations in x-ray flux and at all more periods with higher xray flux (caused by solar flares). what indicates, there were still more sunspots and active regions on the Sun in 2005. >>

 
Solar surface activity: In 2016, we had just a few stronger flares (never exceeding C level. The solar surface was/ is mainly characterised by large coronal holes with mainly constantly and still ongoing stronger filament eruptions mainly along their edges, where denser solar matter ( maybe produced during the last flare and proton events) is pushed outward by accumulating pressure in the higher energetic layers below. CMEs from these filament eruptions when reaching the earth regularly caused geomagnetic stormings throughout 2016 (see: NOAA alerts)

I cannot say, whether the fluctuations and sometimes high integral electron flux/ accumulation in the geomagnetic field as still observed in 2016 has to do with CMEs from these filament eruptions. I rather suggest, these electrons are still accumulations those began to circle after the stronger proton events until 2015 ( with protons speeds near the speed of light!!) on wider polar orbits from where they even needed years to approach the earth so far, that they get in friction first with the atmosphere and become effective.

weather-underground/ 2016070: Typhoon Nepartak Drenches Taiwan, Killing 2; Now Headed For China

Typhoon Nepartak powered ashore over the southeastern shore of Taiwan at approximately 6:30 pm EDT (22:30 UTC) July 7 as a Category 4 super typhoon with top sustained winds of 150 mph, as estimated by the the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC). The Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) estimated that Nepartak had a central pressure of 930 mb shortly before landfall. Nepartak hit a relatively unpopulated portion of Taiwan, limiting the damage from the storm. At this writing, two deaths from drowning and 72 injuries had been blamed on the storm. The nearest large city to the storm's landfall location, Taitung (population 107,000), measured sustained 10-minute winds of 81 mph, gusting to 114 mph, at 21 UTC Thursday, in the northwest eyewall of Nepartak. Taitung's pressure sank as low as 964 mb. Lanyu, on an island just off the coast, saw sustained winds (10-minute average) of 101 mph, with a gust to 160 mph, at 02:15 UTC July 8, when the station was in the south eyewall of Nepartak. Several locations in southeast Taiwan received over 15" of rain in less than 24 hours from Nepartak:...read more...

washington-post/ 20160808: Delta’s massive computer outage is part of a much bigger problem

A systemwide computer outage at Delta Air Lines left passengers stranded and caused mass cancellations for customers who booked flights scheduled for Monday morning. [Delta grounds all flights due to computer outage] The problem is a reminder that, in our increasingly digital world, computer outages, no matter the cause, can wreak havoc on even the largest companies and the customers they serve. Here's what you need to know: What happened? The problem was caused by an early morning power outage in Atlanta, where the airline is based, according a statement from Delta. "A power outage in Atlanta, which began at approximately 2:30 a.m. ET, has impacted Delta computer systems and operations worldwide, resulting in flight delays," the company said. But Georgia Power said the issue had to do with Delta's own equipment, not a larger power outage. "We believe Delta Air Lines experienced an equipment outage; other Georgia Power customers were not affected," said John Kraft, spokesperson for the utility. Georgia Power has staff on site trying to assist Delta, he said.

this section also refers to quake activities those typically occure since 2011 in a radius of 100- 200 km around the eifel volcano field, while the region in between stays rather calm. This typically indicates the possibiltiy of hot magma with in the area in between that radius where NO Seimic quakes occure .- Hot magma makes no seismic effects but causes tensions and seismic quakes just on its bondaries where it meets with colder rock formations. There are also regular microquakes along the river Rhine, thos are not respected here.

EXPLANATIONS>

Green backcolored fields marks those regions where geomagnetic field density values during the CME impact was below 100 nT.

Yellow backcolored fields mark the regions with values above 100 nT./

Red backcolored field mark the regions , those were hit relatively strongest ( peak values) by the latest SEP/ CME . Colors from orange to light red mark GRADUAL IMPACTS OF MULTIPLE CMEs CLUSTERS.

 

HOW TO READ THIS FORECAST>

INCREASES IN VOLCANIC ACTIVITIES will - if- most probably occure - SOON AFTER CME impact- within the RED colored regions and between the red and yellow regions!

STORMS, ICE MELTINGS AN FLOODINGS might- if- then most probably occureSOON AFTER CME impacts-within the RED COLORED REGIONS

The relatively strongest EARTHQUAKE ACTIVITIES WILL MOST PROBABLY occure AFTER a LATENCY period due to CME IMPACT on the TECTONIC BOUNDARIES within the RED until the YELLOW (backcolored) REGIONS. Read "latency remarks"

NASA/ 20151008/ NASA's Curiosity Rover Team Confirms Ancient Lakes on Mars

A new study from the team behind NASA's Mars Science Laboratory/Curiosity has confirmed that Mars was once, billions of years ago, capable of storing water in lakes over an extended period of time.

Using data from the Curiosity rover, the team has determined that, long ago, water helped deposit sediment into Gale Crater, where the rover landed more than three years ago. The sediment deposited as layers that formed the foundation for Mount Sharp, the mountain found in the middle of the crater today.

"Observations from the rover suggest that a series of long-lived streams and lakes existed at some point between about 3.8 to 3.3 billion years ago, delivering sediment that slowly built up the lower layers of Mount Sharp," said Ashwin Vasavada, Mars Science Laboratory project scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and co-author of the new Science article to be published Friday, Oct. 9.

The findings build upon previous work that suggested there were ancient lakes on Mars, and add to the unfolding story of a wet Mars, both past and present. Last month, NASA scientists confirmedcurrent water flows on Mars.

     
         

SPECIAL REPORTS: (MORE)FREAKY MARS IMAGES/ by NASA/ Curiosity find more in previous month`s archive

     

A group of youtube people are just waiting for the next super high resolution image the rover sends home, most people as obviously also the NASA staff does oftenly not take much notice of. Curiosity`s images have such a high resolution that you can search and magnify on them each detail and its just incredible what people find on these images:

Just watch the video( right side): I just can`t prove whether the "vehicle" oin this photo might be a a fake!>

Beside the jokes made upon these discoveries like the video with " the green frog" that survived on Mars after its water channels had dried out, some of these dicoveries just knocked me out of my shoes. Best source for those images on youtube is the channel what`s up in the sky.

However: Its meanwhile in all news and obviously noone could approve yet , that those images would have been faked with an photo editing software!

   
for longer time I have not updated myself on the latest of NASA curiosity rover Mars mission. Now I found some articles with some indeed strange images Curiosity sent to Earth your can try to find more on NASA jpl.(officially NASA seems not to be so interested...)
