Poleward migration rate of the magnetic fields and the power of the solar cycle

Abstract




We show that the velocity of poleward migration of the magnetic fields is a linear function of the "strength of the solar cycle". We introduce a new index" the strength of the solar cycle" and represent this quantitatively by the two parameters: Sigma (rev)(min) Ssp  summation of all the annual means of sunspot areas Ssp of the cycle for the N and S hemispheres separately starting from the lowest value of the annual mean in Ssp in the minimum phase all the way to the year of the polarity reversal and Sigma Wrev(min)  summation of the Wolf numbers as done for Sigma (rev)(min) Ssp, but over the entire visible hemisphere. Each of these parameters according to us represents the "strength of the solar cycle" although they are not independent of each other. We also discuss some questions regarding the role of the meridional circulation in transporting the fields towards the poles.
