Scientists Have Found Traces Of Sunny Mega-Slices Of The Vii Century To Our Era

The mighty magnetic field of the Sun never stays alone. The active processes occurring in it can lead to the appearance of coronal emissions of the mass: the streams of accelerated charged particles create instability in the solar wind and cause magnetic storms on Earth. Such emissions can additionally dispel the protons of the solar wind to huge speeds. And if they usually do not penetrate through the earth’s magnetosphere, then such proton bursts (Solar Proton Event, SPE) can reach ionospheres, disturbing satellite communications and causing polar beams.

So far, the mechanism of SPE bursts is poorly studied. Such events are rare enough, and modern surveillance of the Sun continues less than a hundred years. Therefore, their traces are looking for in the ancient samples: the interaction protons caused by flows in the atmosphere leads to a change in the content of different nuclides. Therefore, SPE can reflect an unexpected peak in the amount of carbon-14-14 plants on wood rings – or beryllium-10 and chlorine-36 peak in ice cores.

Back in 2017, the International Group of Scientists drew attention to the carbon peak in the wood rings, corresponding to 660 BC.E. However, he could well become a consequence of other events (for example, just a very powerful sun outbreak) – and researchers continued to work. In a new article published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, they added to these data results of ice research.

Raimond Muscheler (Raimund Muscheler) from the University of Lund and his colleagues studied cores derived from Greenland glaciers. AND INDEED, IN SEDIMENTS FORMED ABOUT 660 BEFORE.E., The Authors Discovered A Sharp Increase in the Content of Rare Isotopes Beryllia and Chlorine, Which Confirms The Version of the Powerful Splash of Protons That Occurred at the Time.

According to Scientists, It Was One of the Strongest in the Entire History of Mankind – Ten Times More Powerful As A Record Spe of Our Time Registered In 1956. Event 660 BC.E. IT TURNED OUT TO BE ONLY A LITTLE WEAKER THAN THE MOST POWERFUL BURST, KNOWN SCIENCE, – THE SAME DENDROCHRONOLOGY AND ICE CORES ALLODED US TO DATE IT 774-775.E.
