An interesting question has been posed on the ABC Far North Regional Radio Gardening Program. “Is the rise in Solar Flares affecting plants with unexplained burning observed”
Firstly a quick explanation of how the sun interacts with the earths Atmosphere, a topic covered several time on ATSG. The charged plasma ejected during CME events on the sun certainly interacts with the earths Atmosphere producing Glorious Aurora’s. However the most likely effect on the ground will be any growth of the Ozone Hole that develops over The Arctic and Antarctic each year. The resulting increase in UV can certainly have an effect on plants and animals on the earth.
More to come on this subject !
