Sun May Become Cooler By 2050

Sun May Become Cooler By 2050

Such conditions might create a 'mini ice age'.

It is a known fact that sun circles via an 11-year cycle.

Based on the cooling spiral of recent solar cycles, scientists from University of California, San Diego believe the next "grand-minimum" is just decades away, during which the un will be seven per cent cooler.

.

During the cycle sun's temperature keeps on changing with uniformity and researchers say with the newly found method they know when will the sun will have solar minimum.

That time it was called 'Maunder Minimum, ' where the temperature got so low that London's River Thames got frozen. As per the scientists, it seems that the in 2050 the sun will experience a similar situation.

With mini ice age type conditions, the head of the research team, Dan Lubin, believes we may experience even worse conditions in 2050. A grand minimum is a periodic event for the Sun, during which its magnetic field decreases and becomes weak so much that it could not generate sunspots or intense solar activity.

Scientists recently revealed that the Sun is anticipated to cool down by the mid-century, and will be emitting less radiation, during the period which is dubbed as the grand minimum. Because of this, the sun's surface gets dimmer.

A grand-minimum, according to the study, is a period of very low solar activity, which will lead to lower temperature on earth.

The study said that when the sun's energy is reduced, the first thing that occurs is the thinning of the stratospheric ozone layer.

In spite of the chilling weather in Europe during the Maunder Minimum, other areas such as Alaska and southern Greenland warmed.
