Magnetic-Shield Cracks Found; Big Solar Storms Expected National Geographic - December 17, 2008
An unexpected, thick layer of solar particles inside Earth's magnetic field suggests there are huge breaches in our planet's solar defenses. These breaches indicate that during the next period of high solar activity, due to start in 2012, Earth will experience some of the worst solar storms seen in decades.
Leaks Found in Earth's Protective Magnetic Field Live Science - December 17, 2008
Scientists have found two large leaks in Earth's magnetosphere, the region around our planet that shields us from severe solar storms. The leaks are defying many of scientists' previous ideas on how the interaction between Earth's magnetosphere and solar wind occurs: The leaks are in an unexpected location, let in solar particles in faster than expected and the whole interaction works in a manner that is completely the opposite of what scientists had thought.
A Giant Breach in Earth's Magnetic Field NASA - December 16, 2008
NASA's five THEMIS spacecraft have discovered a breach in Earth's magnetic field ten times larger than anything previously thought to exist. Solar wind can flow in through the opening to "load up" the magnetosphere for powerful geomagnetic storms. But the breach itself is not the biggest surprise. Researchers are even more amazed at the strange and unexpected way it forms, overturning long-held ideas of space physics.
Here's how it plays out...
Ongoing coronal mass ejections reach Earth ----> effect planetary magnetics ----> shifting ocean and jet stream currents in the Ring of Fire ----> creating unusual and extreme weather patterns around the world ----> creating unstoppable Earth changes and affecting the behavioral patterns of all sentient life forms.
