Evidences of Space Weather Induced Natural Disasters
Strong solar activities have long been known to cause damages to electrical grids and global communication systems. However, there exist several evidences that solar activities have strong correlation with abrupt weather conditions and tectonic activities, including storm formations, flash floods, volcanic activities and earthquakes. In this presentation, case studies of such connections are examined and discussed that are linked to electrical properties of the Earth. Simple electrical theories based on laboratory experiments are presented to explain such phenomena.
