Revised Assumptions and a Multidiscipline Approach to a Solar/Climate Connection

The following abstract of a poster to be presented next month at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union caught my eye:

Leif Svalgaard writes in comments (at WUWT):
We plan to submit tomorrow to JGR the following…http://www.leif.org/research/IDV09.pdf
(preprint)…showing the run of the heliospheric magnetic field since 1835 [not a typo]. I plan to discuss the whole peer-review process here on WUWT, complete with nasty comments by the reviewers and our responses. This will be an illustration of the peer-review process as it unfolds. Should be interesting. I’ll say. I’ve taken some of the most interesting graphics and put them up for WUWT readers, along with the abstract

Leif Svalgaard (via Frank Hill) writes to advise me that National Solar Observatory GONG is showing a significant spot
on the far side of the sun that appear to have the right latitude for SC24 in addition to being fairly large.
Here is the GONG plot, note P87.

Some speculation that solar cycle 25 has already begun:

The sun is in the pits of a century-class solar minimum, and sunspots have been puzzlingly scarce for more than two years. Now, for the first time, solar physicists might understand why.

The article, by National Geographic, contains quotes from Leif Svalgaard concerning the current Solar Cycle (24).
After a perplexing quiet spell, the sun appears to be stirring—but astrophysicists remain divided about what our star is going to do next.
The sun was expected to hit a low in 2008 as part of its normal 11-year cycle of activity.
But it stayed quiet until very recently, confounding scientists and sparking speculation of a sun-triggered "little ice age."
Solar physicists have denied that potential, saying that today's greenhouse gases have much more influence on global temperatures than the sun

…it is with great sadness that I report that Jack Eddy passed away yesterday.
- Dr. Leif Svalgaard in comments today
“My reasons for taking this less-traveled road were many. One is the inevitable thrill of discovery when you wander into new areas. More importantly, you also avoid the danger of being too comfortable in too narrow a niche. I truly believe the sayings that there is no hope for the satisfied man and that without fear there is no learning. Entering a new field with a degree in another is not unlike Lewis and Clark walking into the camp of the Mandans. You are not one of them. They distrust you. Your degree means nothing and your name is not recognized. You have to learn it all from scratch, earn their respect, and learn a lot on your own. But I also think that many of the most significant discoveries in science will be found not in but between the rigid boundaries of the disciplines: the terra incognita where much remains to be learned. It’s not a place that’s hidebound by practice and ritual. I have always tried to keep moving between fields of study.” — Jack Eddy, 1999 Click here to view full text of Eddy interview

I initially wrote this article using data only from David Archibald, but within a couple of minutes I was given some broader data from Leif Svalgaard, so I have rewritten this to include both resources in the interest of seeing the broader perspective. – Anthony
