question

What modulates our Sun? The majority of science work on the principle that the Sun is self modulating and each solar cycle is a product of a random number generator. There are others that suspect the Sun is modulated by the planets with a special emphasis on Uranus & Neptune. Thanks to Carl Smith who has recently left us we have new knowledge that significantly adds to Jose, Landscheidt & Charvàtovà's work.

SDO Sunspot

Daily Update:

Six spotless days are recorded with the overall area decreasing. There have been 12 spotless days so far this month and F10.7 flux has been under 100 for 38 days straight. June is shaping up to be the lowest month of activity since the SC23/24 minimum.

Has the SILSO sold out the sunspot record? In breaking news there are 4 papers published this year that pose serious questions to the Svalgaard/Clette review of the international sunspot number that ended up changing the sunspot record last July. If the challenges are withheld it would seem the most important sunspot record of 400 years has been allowed to be manipulated to reflect the views of just two people who could be seriously argued as having their own agenda rather than basing the outcome on rigorous science. The Svalgaard/Clette revised Group Sunspot Number has also been challenged. It will be interesting if this topic comes up on WUWT? The links to the papers can be found HERE.

Wanted: Someone to build a software model that could interpret solar activity from the outer four planet angles taken from the JPL Ephemeris using my theory. I can provide the scale and power associated with the angles through some simple rules, I think the outcome would closely match the Holocene solar proxy record and ultimately provide proof of concept in a blockbuster paper?

Australia continues to experience the effects of large East Coast Low's this winter... The past 6 years has seen an increase in low pressure systems and low pressure troughs that can create low pressure systems. The last 6 months has seen a peak in this activity so far. Ozone changes due to low UV output is probably the cause and with more to come with the declining SC24 which has seen F10.7 flux well below 100 for most of this year coupled with the predicted La Nina and Antarctic jet streams, we should expect a very cold 2016 winter in the southern hemisphere.

Cycle 24 record sunspot area: Region 2192 @ 75727 pixels on 23/10/2014.

 sc5 sc24 comparison

                                                              Note: SIDC(SILSO) values are pre July 15th 2015.

SC24 Summary:

Back in 2008 I made a prediction for SC24 based on what I think are solid foundations. The prediction was for a SSN value of less than 50 according to the old scale. So far I am on track but I also mentioned that SC24 might be a cycle where one hemisphere shuts down. The first peak of SC24 was around 2 years ago where we saw a Sun reach its peak totally dominated by the northern hemisphere, since then there has been a gradual decline in the north to a point where now the south has nearly completely taken over and is attempting to reach a peak similar to the north 2 years ago.

If both hemispheres had experienced this activity at the same time we might have had something close to a normal cycle but now with the prospect of the north shutting down completely some big questions remain. The northern hemisphere has switched polarity (just) and the south is attempting this process and with the new activity should do so, but if the north shuts down there may not be enough flux to take the hemisphere away from neutral. If so this could have ramifications for the next cycle, which I am expecting. What continues to play out with the south will also have consequences, will the south die off quickly as witnessed in the north which will mean the end of SC24 and if so will that hemisphere also have trouble breaking away from neutral? 

There is still much to play out that will possibly teach us why solar grand minima go for at least 2 cycles.

My predictions show that SC24 will be similar to SC5. The same Solar system forces are in play at similar timings and strength (SC24 perhaps showing a stronger disruption strength, which indicates that SC24 should be a smaller cycle than SC5). This graph using the SIDC monthly count from Jan 1798 will compare the Layman's Count from Jan 2008. The Layman's Count is the only count that can properly compare with the old SIDC (Wolf) measures. SC14 has been added for interest (starts Jan 1901) along with the GSN value from Hoyt & Schatten's alternative count which offers another comparison. All 4 records beginning at the end of their previous cycle (where the downramp meets the bottom). The unsmoothed numbers showing the big swings in SC14.

This is the first time modern science can measure a possible grand minimum...we might find that grand minima are simply one hemisphere closing down. Will there be enough sunspot activity in the south to allow the transportation of the reversing flux necessary for a polarity change?...lets see how it pans out.

SOLAR CYCLE 20/24 F10.7 FLUX COMPARISON.

To compare solar cycles we can also use the F10.7 radio flux values that have been recorded since 1947 in Canada. Solar cycle 20 was a weak cycle which is currently looking strong against solar cycle 24. Data is taken from the AU adjusted monthly average values.

SC20 & SC24 have a lot in common, they both experience angular momentum disturbance measured at the Sun. SC24 has a much higher degree of disturbance that will guarantee a lower cycle than SC20 if the theory is correct.

Updated Monthly.

SC24 SPECK RATIO

Below is the current speck ratio for solar cycle 24. Because the LSC employs a similar to Wolf spot threshold size to weed out the smaller groups we can calculate the difference between the SILSO values and obtain a speck ratio. This speck ratio only applies to groups that don't pass the threshold and do not apply to groups that pass and have a multitude of specks. These specks are still counted. Wolfer when he changed the system applied a 0.6 factor to his count because he was counting all specks and needed to stay aligned with Wolf. As we can see the speck ratio is already exceeding Wolfer's conversion factor and the LSC is still counting specks in groups that pass. So in reality the speck ratio is much higher. This is solid evidence that the Wolfer reduction factor used extensively today is not capable of aligning with the original Wolf count. The speck ratio is increasing during what is looking like a grand minimum type cycle.

LAYMAN'S SUNSPOT DARKNESS RATIO

This ratio is a little like the Livingston & Penn contrast measurements, the L&P method is to measure the darkest part of the spot and compare it with the photosphere to achieve a contrast figure. The Layman method is to use only sunspot groups that make the grade and then measure how many green channel pixels are in the 0-132 pixel range and then calculate the proportion of that darker area over the entire pixels in that group . The Layman's method is not hampered by available telescope time, cloud cover and daytime only viewing, but uses the daily SDO images. The older SOHO values  pre March 2010 have been calibrated to fit the SDO scale. So far the Layman's results are in direct contrast to the L&P.

The above graph is a measure of the group or region darkness for every group daily since August 2010. The preceding graph is measured differently and only records the highest reading achieved by each group, the above graph represents the latter half of the preceding graph (and beyond) and is measuring the higher plateau. The values are taken from the beginning of the SDO project, prior to these values the SOHO records were used and display a lower start to the cycle if appended. Only groups that pass the threshold are included but specks in included groups also contribute to the darkness measurement. The better method would be to only measure individual spots that pass the threshold which could be a project for someone that might be interested. The first 9 months of the SDO data is heavily influenced by unipolar regions which were a lot darker than other regions, but after that the movement of the darkness record roughly follows the sunspot trend (perhaps leading which could be useful) with matching peaks at the highest point in October/November 2011 which may ultimately turn out to be the highest point in SC24. Although this cycle is very weak the data shows the magnetic strength is moving with sunspot activity.  The measurements recorded are very accurate and do not rely on telescope time, day time readings, cloud cover and is less affected by the rising speck ratio. Every pixel is measured accurately by software that records darkness from the pristine SDO images. This measurement of sunspot magnetic strength differs from the L&P method, but I believe it is more accurate, of interest is that my method suggests sunspot visibility occurs around the 40-45% on the darkness ratio scale, there is certainly no danger of all spots recording that value any time soon.

The data shows the magnetic strength albeit weak this time around follows the natural amplitude of the solar cycle. The graph below is the overall solar disk measurement that I also record daily and is not subject to a Wolf type threshold. The same trend is observed with the peak in darkness aligning with the peak in solar activity for SC24.

A BRIEF HISTORY ON THE EVOLUTION OF THE SUNSPOT COUNT.

 
Rudolf Wolf in 1855 commissioned the Fraunhofer 80mm / 1100 mm Refractor 64x telescope, here observed on the southern terrace of the Swiss Federal Observatory in Zurich. A Merzsche Polarization filter system for variable adjustment of detectable sunlight fitted, which enables safe viewing of the solar photosphere.Click on the pic for a larger view  

Johann Rudolf Wolf born in 1816 reconstructed the sunspot record back to 1749 using the geomagnetic record as his baseline. Wolf used this background scale to adjust the values taken before 1847 to align with his count, later in 1902 Wolfer looks to have reduced Wolf's SC5/6 values after discovering extra data not available to Wolf (under investigation). Wolf's reconstruction is also backed up by the Group Sunspot Number which shows very similar cycles during the Dalton Minimum. The GSN employs 32 observers during this period (only several were available to Wolf). The depth of the Dalton Minimum is beyond question.

Wolf was the inventor of the sunspot formula R=k(10g+s) which translates to sunspot number = a local adjustment factor to allow for telescope differences X 10 for each group + 1 for each spot. During his lifetime while counting spots he used the K factor to align other observers and indeed his own records that were taken with his smaller portable telescope. The portable telescope has a 40mm aperture and a magnification of 40x 20x compared to the larger telescope of 64x, the larger telescope having an aperture of 80mm and a focal length of 1100mm. To my knowledge both telescopes used a polarizing filter and did not use the projection method. During his time Wolf did not count small spots and specks, he set a threshold size that is now lost to science but it was set for two very good reasons.

1. He was trying to match his records with the past, the prior records were recorded through telescopes of lesser technology. Even so he had to make adjustments to the older record.

2. His own telescope only saw the minor spots/specks when conditions were good. (Today we can see even smaller specks with the 150mm equipment)

Wolf set a threshold for good reason, we should have preserved his vision.

His successor Wolfer in the 1880's marks a change in direction in how sunspots are counted. Wolfer began counting all small spots and pores along with recording each umbral area within a penumbra which differs from the Wolf method. He  introduced a reduction factor to his count to align with Wolf. Exactly how he arrived at his factor is currently being investigated but Wolfer crosschecked the 0.6 K factor for 17 years against Wolf's count and telescope. Update Sept 2012: new data suggests the original Wolf 80mm was greatly enhanced in 1864, with Wolf apparently not using the instrument after that. Later in 1883 Wolfer produced daily drawings on 25cm projection, which is thought to greatly enhance the spot counting performance. When Wolfer applied his 0.6  K factor he did not experience a grand minimum,  Wolfer must have been unaware that during grand minima where the speck count could be much higher the 0.6 K factor would not be sufficient to stop the values being overstated. The ratio of specks is where the potential for divergence lies, recent data is showing that SC24 is experiencing a large drop off of large spots with an increase in small spots.

Brunner followed on from Wolfer and continued his method up to 1945, where Waldmeier took over and a step change was introduced. Recent analysis HERE suggests the modern SILSO sunspot record is at least 22% higher than the late 1880's Wolfer values. Waldmeier introduced a new method of counting spots where extra weighting was applied to groups, the weighting factor is as follows: “a speck is counted once, A larger one but still without penumbra {a pore} is given the statistical weight 2 [i.e. counted twice], a small ordinary spot 3, and a large one 5 [i.e. counted 5 times]“ (Locarno have also scored single spots with 4&6). This addition to the historical count marks the greatest movement away from the Wolf method that needs adjustment when comparing the modern count. Waldmeier may have confused Wolfer's change to the umbral counting as a weighting system already introduced, this is still an area of current investigation. Update Sept 2012: There is emerging evidence that Brunner was using a weighting system, how this affected his count is still unclear.

The SIDC when taking over from Waldmeier in 1981 calibrated their results against the Waldmeier count and still use the  weighting factor at the SIDC reference station at Locarno, which has been in operation for over 50 years. When comparing the NOAA adjusted count to the SIDC count there are some inconsistencies prior to 2001 that are currently being investigated. Leif Svalgaard and myself have opposing views on this issue, which the SILSO have taken onboard.

The evolution of the sunspot record has made it difficult to formulate a homogeneous record (the SILSO are doing a great job in a difficult arena). Before Wolfer there was mainly one primary observer who was at the mercy of local conditions. Today we have multiple observers that must put upward pressure on the historic counts, the SILSO have 80 observers covering the globe of which 30% are professional. These results are averaged over 24 hours to gain a result. Modern observatories mainly use the same magnification as Wolf's larger telescope but that is the only equal comparison. The aperture lenses are nearly twice the diameter and the focal lengths are more than twice the length of Wolf's 64x scope, the design of the optics is also unknown on the modern scopes which can also make quite a difference, these motor driven, auto cooled/no tube telescopes are a far cry from Wolf's telescopes (Note: according to Leif Svalgaard the Locarno telescope is stopped down to 80mm). Wolf used a 1.5 K factor when using his smaller telescope, but 1.5 x zero is still zero which suggests Wolf must of been able to see his sunspot threshold through the smaller telescope.

We must also be aware of modern counting methods that are different to Wolf's method, NOAA have decided to run their own system that is not designed to line up with the past. In essence they do not take on Wolfer's 0.6 reduction factor to account for the small spots and pores that Wolf did not count. NOAA have their method which differs from the historical record that is unfortunately prevalent across many media outlets.

The SILSO count is the internationally accepted standard that follows the Wolfer method. The Waldmeier step is currently built into this standard.

Isolating specks by setting a "Wolf like threshold" and adopting the SILSO count for the groups that make the grade the Layman’s Count although not perfect, attempts to redress some of the modern issues and should compare more favorably to Wolf’s (and possibly Wolfer's) reconstruction of the Dalton Minimum cycles.

SOME BASIC MATHS TO DETERMINE SPECK DETECTION.

When it comes to observing specks there are two main players. The size of the aperture lens and the atmospheric conditions. Below is a list of what is possible in arc seconds from the appropriate lens diameter of a refractor type telescope.. This assumes perfect viewing and distortion free lenses. 1 arc second is equal to 725 kilometers on the solar surface.

Diameter Arc sec Km
40mm 2.93 2124
50mm 2.32 1682
70mm 1.66 1203
80mm 1.45 1051
110mm 1.05 735
150mm .77 558

Using the current SDO images it can be determined that the Sun is about 3800 pixels wide in the 4096 x 4096 images. The Sun is 1392000 kilometers across so each pixel measures 366 kilometers. The smallest specks recorded by Catania look to be about 700 kilometers across. If so the Wolf 80mm telescope on a perfect day with perfect optics is not capable of achieving this resolution, the 40mm aperture is nowhere near it. The current Wolfcam is also not capable of picking up the smallest specks that are counted today.

 

 

Atmosphere conditions or "seeing" is the next vital component. The very best conditions are achieved at night high up on mountain ridges that face the larger oceans. The very best conditions yield a max of 0.5 arc seconds. During the day conditions are weakened by solar activity in the atmosphere, so the atmosphere plays a big part in what is observable. Catania is capable of seeing 1000km wide specks in level 3 conditions. It becomes obvious that the new 150mm telescopes are capable of recording much smaller specks than Wolf's 80mm telescope.

Pictured left is the Layman's dual telescope, the top telescope is a 70mm aperture stopped down to 40mm set up with an old style Kellner 40x lens 20x lens which is a very close replica to Wolf's handheld telescope. The larger telescope using modern optics is an Orion 110mm aperture premium ED stopped down to 80mm with a 64x lens and should be very close to the original Wolf observatory telescope along with the official Locarno telescope used by the SILSO as its benchmark.   Both telescopes are fitted with "Seymour" solar filters. Click on the pic for a larger view.

 

In summary we have several contributing factors that are undeniably adding to the modern sunspot record.

1. The Waldmeier factor adding 22% via a different counting method that is still used by SILSO today (Leif Svalgaard)

2. A higher speck ratio during SC24 that was not considered by Wolfer when applying his 0.6K factor. Wolfer compared his count with Wolf's baby 20x telescope which is less than satisfactory. Wolf's eye sight was also questionable during this period.

3. The projection method introduced in 1883 producing a step increase in spot numbers that is shown via many metrics.

4. Moving to multiple world wide viewers taken over 24 hours increasing available coverage.

5. Modern 150mm telescopes able to resolve smaller specks than Wolf's 80mm & 40mm telescopes (this would mainly apply on days where Catania is used instead of Locarno) but the original Wolf 80mm telescope was upgraded significantly when Wolfer and his successors took over.

There is one outstanding issue: Does the modern projection method apply a 64X magnification at the viewing aperture or at the projected image? (New evidence according to private communications suggest that the Locarno counting method is performed by eye through the lens (stopped to 80mm), while the actual drawing is recorded at the lens width of 150mm)

Thanks to those supporting the LSC on WUWT, Svalgaard continues to call the method "uncalibrated junk" but misses the point as usual. The LSC removes the Waldmeier factor (like a bad calibrator) in the current record which is a universal requirement and it also adjusts for the increased speck ratio experienced during grand minima. Wolf used a tiny 40mm 20x telescope for the larger part of his observations which had a conversion factor to take it up to the 80mm telescope that Wolfer used. Wolfer introduced a further 0.6 correction factor because he counted all specks (Wolf had a threshold), but both correction factors where tested and applied outside of grand minimum type cycles...they had no way of knowing or how to correct for a grand minimum type cycle. The LSC in effect removes the "bad" calibration errors of the past.

Which ever way you cut it SC24 is following Wolf & Wolfers combined reconstruction of SC5 and looks nothing like SC14 (Svalgaard continues to make wild claims?). SC24 will be the lowest cycle in 200 years.

Graph showing that the difference between NOAA and the SIDC(SILSO) has been mostly constant but has drifted higher in the last few years suggesting either the SIDC is counting more or NOAA is counting less of late.

THE LAYMAN'S COUNT METHOD & HISTORY

There has been a lot of comments recently about the tiny specks that have been counted as sunspots. A tiny speck can get a daily count of 11 which severely skews the record. NOAA is another magnitude higher than the SILSO, NOAA using a different method not meant to compare with the historical count. During times of high speck count we need a new standard to record sunspots that gives us a realistic measure of today's activity verses the last Grand Minimum.

The SOHO 1024 x 1024 Continuum images originally provided a good platform to measure the pixels involved in a Sunspot. Initially it had to be determined what a standard sunspot should represent in size and density, to try and represent a minimum counter like Wolf may have done 200 years ago. After some deliberation with fellow enthusiast Robert Bateman, a minimum standard was established.

SOHO Continuum zoomed to 1600xTo be counted, a sunspot or group must have 23 pixels which have a reading in the green channel of 0-70 for at least 24 hours. Note: This has now been superceded, see below.

All pixels in a digital image have a RGB reading which split out into separate Red, Blue, Green channels and can be easily measured and counted in one action using a freeware graphics program called GIMP.

So the standard was set, which now enabled us to go back over the records and weed out the offending specks and blank days.

The official Layman's Sunspot Count is compared against the SILSO record which is considered conservative when compared with other institutions involved. Basically we use the same sunspot number as SILSO but replace them with zero on days that don't make the grade. When the SILSO count is made up of two or more areas and if any of the area's do not make the Layman's Count, the overall SILSO daily count will be reduced by the areas that fail. Spots that count 23 pixels and over before midnight and then continue on to pass the 24 hour rule will take the SILSO value of that day. Existing Spots that have made the grade but measure less than 23 pixels at midnight are not counted on the next day.

Displayed below is the recent solar activity along with the results of the weeded SILSO record. The data & graphs will be updated monthly soon after SIDC post their record which is usually at the start of each month.

 

NEW LAYMAN'S COUNT METHOD UTILIZING THE SDO HIGH DEFINITION IMAGES.

 

The SDO images are now available and used for the Layman's Sunspot Count. Several high quality images are provided every hour making the counting process more accurate and reliable. The method will use the 5Mb 4096 x 4096 SDO fast-look Continuum images which will be measured at 08:00 UTC daily.

The minimum pixel area is now 333 pixels (0-150 in the green channel) which calibrates to the old 23 pixel threshold used in the SOHO images. The area conversion factor is 6.91%. The 24 hour rule will stay in place. Update 21st Dec 2012: New threshold limit of 336 arising from Mac platform change. All values rising 1% on gimp2 Mac version.

Sunspot areas included in the daily report indicate regions that pass the 336 pixel threshold but are still subject to the 24 hour rule. Because the SILSO can split NOAA numbered groups, final determination cannot be performed until month end. As per Wolf's original method a spot is only counted when it has a visible Umbra.

LAYMAN'S SUNSPOT THRESHOLD 333 PIXEL EXAMPLE.

 

On March 28th 2011 at 4:00 UTC NOAA sunspot region 1180 (11180) was recorded by the SDO satellite. This region matches exactly the Layman's threshold and can be used to compare a likely threshold used by Wolf. When looking at region 1180 through the Layman's 40mm Wolf replica handheld telescope the penumbra/umbra areas are NOT distinguishable. (Update Sept 2012, it is now apparent the Wolf handheld had a magnification of 20x not 40x as previously suggested)  A group is not counted unless one spot within that group meets or exceeds 333 pixels. Now 336 pixels, see above.

 

IMPROVEMENTS TO THE LAYMAN'S SUNSPOT COUNT: June 2012  
In the past because of internet restrictions I was unable to perform the daily update around the same time as the SILSO pilot station (Locarno). Now that the restriction is solved I will use the 08:00 UTC image which is about the average time of the Locarno image making the counting a little more precise, plus I will have access to the drawing. I have also had several requests to post a daily LSC value along with a running monthly average which with a minor change I can now provide. I think this will be a major improvement and should highlight the daily differences between the different counting methods. In the past I used the daily SILSO value to work out the daily K factor for the Locarno drawing which I had to wait until the end of month to obtain. I will now assume a daily 0.6 K factor which is the long term monthly average and should not make any noticeable change to the LSC monthly value.  

 

NEW AREA BASED MEASUREMENT,DSN.

A new counting method will run in conjunction with the Layman's Count. It will be an area based method but taking into consideration the darkness or magnetic strength. This is an alternative method which intends to accurately measure area and magnetic strength which should alleviate the current problems with speck counting. A daily reading around 08:00 UTC will measure solar face pixel area and darkness, these will be combined to produce a DSN value (Daily Sharp Number) :) Click on the graph for more data.

 The DSN will hopefully be a better gauge of the true spot strength and may be a useful value when comparing with the F10.7Flux.

The DSN formula: pixel area value x darkness percentage ie a spot that measured 37 pixels with a darkness ratio 54%  would be 37 x 5.4 = 199.8 (multiply the result X 6.91% if using SDO image).

The DSN method will not use the 333 pixel or 24 hour rule but will use the same green channel readings from the Layman's Count and darkness ratio methods.

JUNE NEWS

 

One sunspot group is recorded with the overall area decreasing. F10.7 heading towards sub 80. The second run of spotless days this month is looking to happen tomorrow...

Has the SILSO sold out the sunspot record? In breaking news there are 4 papers published this year that pose serious questions to the Svalgaard/Clette review of the international sunspot number that ended up changing the sunspot record last July. If the challenges are withheld it would seem the most important sunspot record of 400 years has been allowed to be manipulated to reflect the views of just two people who could be seriously argued as having their own agenda rather than basing the outcome on rigorous science. The Svalgaard/Clette revised Group Sunspot Number has also been challenged. It will be interesting if this topic comes up on WUWT? The links to the papers can be found HERE.

Wanted: Someone to build a software model that could interpret solar activity from the outer four planet angles taken from the JPL Ephemeris using my theory. I can provide the scale and power associated with the angles through some simple rules, I think the outcome would closely match the Holocene solar proxy record and ultimately provide proof of concept in a blockbuster paper?

Australia continues to experience the effects of large East Coast Low's this winter... The past 6 years has seen an increase in low pressure systems and low pressure troughs that can create low pressure systems. The last 6 months has seen a peak in this activity so far. Ozone changes due to low UV output is probably the cause and with more to come with the declining SC24 which has seen F10.7 flux well below 100 for most of this year coupled with the predicted La Nina and Antarctic jet streams, we should expect a very cold 2016 winter in the southern hemisphere.

A paper by McCracken, Beer & Steinhilber is published in Solar Physics (2014) which aligns itself very strongly with my theory and paper on solar grand minima. The AMP event or barycentric anomaly being the major differentiators from other planetary theories. Anthony Watts has refused to review this new paper along with mine.

Ozone changes due to low UV output is probably the cause and with more to come with the declining SC24 which has seen F10.7 flux well below 100 for most of this year coupled with the predicted La Nina and Antarctic jet streams, we should expect a very cold 2016 winter in the southern hemisphere.

Two sunspot groups are recorded with the overall area increasing.

Wanted: Someone to build a software model that could interpret solar activity from the outer four planet angles taken from the JPL Ephemeris using my theory. I can provide the scale and power associated with the angles through some simple rules, I think the outcome would closely match the Holocene solar proxy record and ultimately provide proof of concept in a blockbuster paper?

Today the south coast of Australia is subject to extreme conditions via the jet stream. We have experienced very mild conditions so far this autumn mainly because of low pressure troughs sucking warmer air out of the interior. There is a good case the pressure troughs and jet stream action is linked to low solar output.
