    Got it Ben. Thanks again.

    That was an eye opener for me. I much appreciate you taking all the time to do uploads like this and the YT’s etc with so much on your plate right now. Thank you again.

    Your reasoning leads to a logical explanation of environmental events that surpasses most all others in this field that I follow. Thank you for making sense of a complex world of weather in very easy way to understand.

    You/we track Earth holes.
    OLR high anomalies lacking sufficient cloud cover/ storm activity to justify the emission. We /you mark them as increased risk for a major earthquakes.
    Blot echoes track the energy as it rises to the surface. I’ve noticed that usually with an arcing pathway not normally a straight line. I’ll watching and paying attention to notice if the arking direction is the same north or south of the Equator.
    Best of luck on your newest to riddles you’ve cracked some that have lasted for eons.

    During a atmospheric compression event the magnetic rings are compressed ,the lower ring(flux line) in the animation is pushed under ground. Correct? This causes the inner Van Allen belt created by the ionosphere jet to creep down into the lower atmosphere and strike the ground causing these amazing lightning shows we see more as of late.

    With the weakening magnetic field would we expect the equatorial ion fountain to rise higher from the ground before spreading out as there is less magnetic intensity to counteract its outward force, causing it to return to ground at a higher latitude?

    When the sun’s magnetic field is extremely strong there are no coronal holes. We have identified coronal hole equivalents on Earth. Earth’s magnetic field is weakening. If the previous statement is accurate and the ionosphere will be spraying much higher into the outer reaches of our planets upper atmosphere,theas will be our coronal hole equivalents, they just haven’t reached the surface yet. Does the ion Fountain dance up and down North and South around the planet over time like it does on the star? Yes. Eg the SAA one of the landing points for the equatorial ion fountain is moving and gaining intensity. Reducing astronauts working life cycles by over 25%.
