What is current state of the solar cycle?
not as good as hoped ;)
seriously ... do some googling ... there's 100's of links to look at
I already figured it out!
That's good :)
it's been a very poor solar max aye
I regard the solar cycle 24 is weak in terms of sunspots only. It is these that give us the extra UV and X-rays which affect climate. Of course, it may not be weaker in some other less important respects.
There's been substantially lower solar flux readings and flares particularly X class ones compared to the last 2 or 3 cycles
what other respects were you thinking it hadn't been weaker in ?
