Scientists say solar activity is weakening and is entering a low period of solar activity known as the “solar mini-period,”media BGR reported. The sun follows a pattern of periodic and inactive periods, lasting approximately 11 years. Researchers concerned about solar activity have noted that the sun has not had a sunspot for more than three months, a huge indicator that the sun is entering a period known as the solar minion.
The solar miniary and solar maximum period are two extreme periods in the solar’s 11-year active cycle. During the solar minimum, it is characterized by a decrease in sunspots, solar flares, and decreases in the activity of the sun’s magnetic field; In addition, during this period, aurora activity on Earth increased, and the chance of satellite communication interrupted when the sun emitted charged particles in our general direction. Solar mini-periods are usually unconcerned. During the solar minimum, the energy output of the sun makes little difference.
Historically, there has been speculation as to whether a particularly long solar minimision known as the Maunder minimum in the 16th-17th century caused the Xiaobing River period, when temperatures in North America and Europe were lower than average, but there was insufficient evidence. Some scientists believe that the drop in temperature is more likely to be related to volcanic activity than to a period of decaying solar activity. The total temperature is thought to have dropped by an average of 1 degree Celsius during the small “xiaobing River” period.
