% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is an extended re-write of the earlier post on this topic. The purpose is to explain the Jose cycle chart shown below (in blue).

The Hale cycle is the time taken for solar magnetic polarity to return to its initial state (i.e. two ~11-year cycles: one north, one south), so the two reversals of polarity take around 22 years.

Estimates of mean solar (Hale) cycle length:

‘Finally, we recover a 22.14-year cycle of the solar dynamo in the framework of a reduced zero-dimensional a-s dynamo model.’

A Planetary Spin-Orbit Coupling Model for Solar Activity

Hence, the basic unit of change in the Sun’s rotation rate (i.e. an increase followed by a decrease) is 2 x 11.07 years = 22.14 years. This is essentially equal to the mean length of the Hale magnetic sunspot cycle of the Sun which is 22.1 +/- 2.0 yrs).

The aim here is to link the Hale cycle to the planetary movements of Jupiter and Saturn.

Planetary theory – from Abreu et al (2012):

**Results.** We find an excellent agreement between the long-term cycles in proxies of solar activity and the periodicities in the planetary torque and also that some periodicities remain phase-locked over 9400 years.

**Conclusions.** Based on these observations we put forward the idea that the long-term solar magnetic activity is modulated by planetary effects. If correct, our hypothesis has important implications for solar physics and the solar-terrestrial connection.

In the Talkshop post Jupiter, Saturn and the de Vries cycle the graphic on the right showed the long-term orbital patterns in 14 Jose cycles ( = 14 x 9 = 126 Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions).

Note that 85 S = 211 J = 126 J-S.

Dividing by the number of Jose cycles in the period i.e. 14:

S = 6 x 14, +1

J = 15 x 14, +1

J-S = 9 x 14 (9 J-S = 1 Jose cycle)

The Jose cycle chart (below, right) shows how the ‘components’ of the ~179-year Jose cycle fit together, using this data. Added in is the notional value of the number of mean Hale cycles expected in the period (8, + 1/14).

It’s a ‘model’ because not every 179 year period can be exactly the same, not least because solar cycles vary in length, within a range of roughly 11 +/- 3 years.

However over very long periods the numbers may average out as per the model. The Hale cycle would have a mean value of 22.15~years according to the model, i.e. a 99.95% match with the estimates above.

The idea of 15 plus 1/14th Jupiter orbits was once put forward by planetary cycles researcher Timo Niroma:

‘And one guess: the weak 179-year supercycle may bind the 9.9-year cycle with 15 1/14 Jovian years. This may have repercussions to the hypothesis that every 15th cycle among some others have the length of one Jupiter year.’

Chart – re S-H and J-H:

7 + 2 = 9 J-S conjunctions

7 – 2 = 5 = Landscheidt’s ‘pentadactyl hand’ (Lake Saki Varves paper – see Figs. 2 and 3)

[7 * 2 = 14]

Landscheidt and the ‘pentadactyl hand’ [extract from link above]:

*FIG. 2 : Smoothed 9-year running variance in the angular momentum of the sun’s motion about the center of mass of the solar system (v), for the period 700-1600. The cyclic pattern, formed by the curve, conveys the impression of five-fingered (pentadactyl) hands. *

A complete five-fingered hand covers a period of 178.8 years, the fundamental cycle in the sun’s motion discovered by Jose (1965) and studied by Fairbridge, Sanders, and Shirley (Fairbridge and Sanders 1987; Fairbridge and Shirley 1987). Dansgaard (Dansgaard et al. 1969) has derived a cycle of just 180 years in climate from the Camp Century ice core drilled from the Greenland Ice Sheet. This correspondence begs for investigation of a possible relationship of climate features with the complex pattern of the five-fingered hand, which reflects both variations in impulses of the torque in the sun’s motion and secular sunspot activity.

The mean interval between fingers of the hand is 35.76 years.
