Mystery of solar cycle illuminated
In the convection zone of the star, the plasma currents make a huge turnover that lasts about 22 years (mps) Solar activity fluctuates in a rhythm of about eleven years, which is reflected among other things in the frequency of sunspots. A complete magnetic period lasts 22 years. Scientists have long been puzzling over what causes this cycle.
