Episode 11 – Clark Stewart – The Mayan Rosetta Stone

A coronal mass ejection (CME) is a massive burst of gas and magnetic field arising from the solar coronaand being released into the solar wind, as observed in a coronagraph. Coronal mass ejections are often associated with other forms of solar activity, most notably solar flares or filament eruptions, but a broadly accepted theoretical understanding of these relationships has not been established. CMEs most often originate from active regions on the Sun’s surface, such as groupings ofsunspots associated with frequent flares. Near solar maxima, the Sun produces about three CMEs every day, whereas near solar minima, there is about one CME every five days. Impact on Earth When […]
