solar flares and our weather: Draft 1

This topic submitted by Claire Holland-Moritz, Lauren Collier, Shanna Shaw, Brynnen Callahan, Liz Marconi (,,,, marconen@muohio) at 9:49 pm on 9/11/00. Additions were last made on Wednesday, May 7, 2014. Section: Cummins

We want to know how, if they do, do solar flares effect the earth's weather? We propose that it does effect the earth's weather. The higher the number of sunspots, the more server and speratic our weather will be. To answer our hypothosis we will view the sun spot cluster and measure their size, frequency, and location. We will also be keeping track of the weather to compare them. It will help us to look up work that others have done in their research of them and maybe understand why it does effect it. We will research for aproxipatly one month, once a day.
