Grand Solar Minimums marked by violent volcanic activity

The Late Antique Little Ice Age (LALIA) experienced 3 massive T6/T7 eruptions. Each named Grand Solar Minimum since has been marked with similar violent eruptive periods. Dalton, the last GSM, was marked by Tambora.

Grand Solar Minimums marked by violent volcanic activity

J.H. Walker

Under normal orbital rules I would disagree with a descent in a glaciation period this century and possibly several hundred years without a major geological-driver. But this time it could come from man’s own hubris that he is the master of the universe and his attempts at geoengineering cooling in the midst of a known and predicted Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) cooling period.

The problem with GSM isn’t the reduced energy radiating the earth, but the variation in atmospheric circulation and cooling which is variable, unpredictable, and drives warmist liars silly because it’s so inconvenient.

The real problem with GSMs is the angular momentum changes of the largest mass object in the solar system – the Sun – as it attempts to stay within the gravitation laws of the Solar System Gravity well and orbit the moving Solar System BarryCentre. Some orbits changes are so abrupt they perform zero crossings of the BarryCentre itself.

Not only does this have profound implications for the moderation of the Sun’s energy output, it also has profound implications for the smaller rocky inner planets such as Venus and Earth by stimulating volcanic – and in Earth’s case – tectonic activity as well.

The Holocene is segmented by abrupt sequences of cooling following geological events such as the Younger Dryas, the 8.5K event, and massive volcanic eruption either during, or lagging a GSM periods.

This modern GSM has increased levels of volcanism either on the rift zones (underwater volcanoes) or from the various volcanic hot spots, and those time-line incidences are increasing with a shortening time span between them.

The Late Antique Little Ice Age (LALIA) experienced 3 massive T6/T7 eruptions. Each named Grand Solar Minimum since has been marked with similar violent eruptive periods. Dalton, the last GSM, was marked by Tambora.

I fear this Modern GSM will be no different.

Note: I, Robert, think this GSM could be different from the others because this time the Earth’s magnetic field strength has been falling rapidly.

    Explosive volcanic eruptions triggered by cosmic rays: Volcano as a bubble chamber
    Volcanoes with silica-rich and highly viscous magma tend to produce violent explosive eruptions that result in disasters in local communities and that strongly affect the global environment. We examined the timing of 11 eruptive events that produced silica-rich magma from four volcanoes in Japan (Mt. Fuji, Mt. Usu, Myojin-sho, and Satsuma-Iwo-jima) over the past 306 years (from AD 1700 to AD 2005). Nine of the 11 events occurred during inactive phases of solar magnetic activity (solar minimum), which is well indexed by the group sunspot number. This strong association between eruption timing and the solar minimum is statistically significant to a confidence level of 96.7%. This relationship is not observed for eruptions from volcanoes with relatively silica-poor magma, such as Izu-Ohshima. It is well known that the cosmic-ray flux is negatively correlated with solar magnetic activity, as the strong magnetic field in the solar wind repels charged particles such as galactic cosmic rays that originate from outside of the solar system. The strong negative correlation observed between the timing of silica-rich eruptions and solar activity can be explained by variations in cosmic-ray flux arising from solar modulation. Because silica-rich magma has relatively high surface tension (~ 0.1 Nm−1), the homogeneous nucleation rate is so low that such magma exists in a highly supersaturated state without considerable exsolution, even when located relatively close to the surface, within the penetration range of cosmic-ray muons (1–10 GeV). These muons can contribute to nucleation in supersaturated magma, as documented by many authors studying a bubble chamber, via ionization loss. This radiation-induced nucleation can lead to the pre-eruptive exsolution of H2O in the silica-rich magma. We note the possibility that the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption was triggered by the same mechanism: an increase in cosmic-ray flux triggered by Typhoon Yunya, as a decrease in atmospheric pressure results in an increase in cosmic-ray flux. We also speculate that the snowball Earth event was triggered by successive large-scale volcanic eruptions triggered by increased cosmic-ray flux due to nearby supernova explosions.

  2. ditto
    not a large amount of volcanics, though we have had some
    BUT we are getting series of above 5 moderately shallow quakes all over the place
    indonesia had a 7+ today and a hell of a lot of 5s as aftershocks
    its seeming to run in clusters in certain areas , and moving round. icelands having some smallish rumblinga again too.

  3. This record cold Autumn started with the volcano that blasted off in Kamchatka, it set the pattern. Bet ya five bucks.

  4. Please correct this error: “…simulating volcanic – and in Earth’s case – tectonic activity as well.”

    Should probably be: “…stimulating volcanic – and in Earth’s case – tectonic activity as well.”

    The meanings are no the same.

  5. Jupiter and Saturn are on the same side of the sun as well for awhile literally pulling the earth the other way than the sun which will have profound volcanic effects

  6. “Not only does this have profound implications for the moderation of the Sun’s energy output, it also has profound implications for the smaller rocky inner planets such as Venus and Earth by simulating volcanic – and in Earth’s case – tectonic activity as well.”

    Not sure if I understand this sentence. Is the word simulating supposed to be stimulating? Help!

  7. Great lengths to find the “smoking gun” for the “Little Ice Age” have been conducted in the past few years. I forgot the name of the island but it is in the Indonesian island chain. This volcano deposited over 150 feet of ash locally as I recall. Part of this research used the known circulation patterns. The scientists documented that volcanic activity in the southern and northern latitudes do have world wide impact on solar dispersion for a few years but that impact is nothing compared to the historic explosive volcano eruptions in the mid-latitudes. These eruptions reach the high atmosphere with massive ash and with the circulation pattern in play, the ash is dispersed world wide with decades of impact.
    Now when we add a GSM and solar gravity pulls to this, it is a wonder that humans have not been starved to extinction.

    • The Gun as you put it isn’t just a smoking volcano, but it’s our Sun, not only does its output energy vary, but the type of energy which particularly affects our atmosphere as it is absorbed, varies by as much as 16%, and affects our atmospheric circulation particularly during the solar minimum portion of the solar cycle, but the Blue end of the spectrum energy does not affect the Earth’s mantle.
      Gravity and via tidal energy does, during each and every GSM the Sun show significant values of angular momentum as its trefoil orbit progresses around the Solar System BarryCentre, those abrupt for the Sun, changes in direction of the largest mass object in the Solar System must have an impact on the Earth’s mantle, much more than just a normal tide would.
      The result of those tugs is increased Volcanism, sometimes catastrophic volcanism as evidence by the Dalton lagging eruption of Tambora, equally there are significant eruptions which have been identified within or lagging many of the Named GSMs since the three during LALIA, those smoking guns obscured the under lying GSM, but it was still there

  8. Quite possibly, non-seasonal temperature drops throughout Earth’s Northern and Southern Hemispheres are not a cyclical phenomenon but artifacts of the episodically active Raikoke volcano off Cape Allon in Russia’s disputed Kurile Islands chain south of Kamchatka, along the North Pacific ‘s “rim of fire” east of Okhotsk.

    Wholly unreported, from 1750 UTC on June 21st – 22nd 2019, Raikoke’s strato-volcano erupted with “massive explosive activity” firing clouds of ash 43,000 feet high (13.1 km). By disquieting analogy, Raikoke’s high-level dust-clouds, due to permeate stratospheric currents for some 18 months (think Tambora’s 1815 “year without a summer”) , have coincided with a pending “dead sun” phase similar to those of AD 1350 – 1420, 1645 – 1715, which began and aggravated Earth’s 500-year Little Ice Age through 1850/1890.

    If so, the Svensmark-Zharkova thesis holds that diminished Solar Magnetic Field (SMF) intensity will enable penetrating Cosmic Rays to seed Earth’s already dim cloud-cover, tipping temperatures to a Super-Grand Solar Minimum through c. AD 2110. Given that Earth’s 12,250-year Holocene Interglacial Epoch ended AD 1350 in precisely similar circumstances, Raikoke et al. does not bode well for neurotic AGW obsessives’ sociopathic Luddite/Malthusian canons propagated from 1968.

  9. The changing magnetosphere, shifting of the poles and water mass at the bulge of the planet due to centrifugal force plus the growing weight of the deepening ice caps and glaciers are a direct result of changes in the sun. Not at all inconvenient news. The magnetic relationship between earth and the sun is stimulated by sunspot activity and planetary alignments of planets in our solar system. T

    The shift in pressure from the shifting weight from earths water bulge added to the thickening ices caps and glaciers does give one pause when considering the growing number of more violent Volcanoes. It is very likely we will see the pimple pop at some time and maybe several times over. These things will happen.

    Fact is they must happen. They are scriptural. There is likely very little interest in knowing whats ahead so I won’t go into it. But it’s going to get much worse. Man has never seen things as bad as they are going to be. Weather IS just part of the sorrow.
