The geomagnetic storm - the solar storm on earth-What Is A Coronal Hole -When is the next geomagnetic storm

The possible geomagnetic storm caused by a ‘coronal hole’ on the sun: How will it affect Earth?

The geomagnetic storm caused by a ‘coronal hole’ on the sun possible: How it will impact Earth and what to do about it: Here’s a summary of what you need to know about the solar coronal hole. What is a coronal hole? A coronal hole is a region of the sun where the electric fields are weaker than usual. The sun’s magnetic field is generated by the convection of hot plasma from the sun’s core to the surface. The magnetic field lines are twisted and stretched as they rise to the surface. The sun’s magnetic field lines are like a giant rubber band. When the sun’s magnetic field lines are stretched, they snap back to their original shape.

Coronal holes can be thought of as high-speed solar winds. “Solar wind exiting a coronal hole travels much faster, reaching speeds of up to 500 miles per second. When these solar wind particles reach the earth, which can take two to four days depending on their speed, they can cause minor geomagnetic storms. High-speed wind gusts can also cause problems for satellites in orbit “according to the Exploratorium, a science museum in San Francisco. ‘The solar wind is a stream of charged particles that are created when the sun’s magnetic field interacts with the solar atmosphere,’ the Exploratorium website says.
