[122.03] A Solar Neutrino / Solar Wind Connection

R. L. McNutt Jr. (Applied Physics Lab./JHU)

Comparison of 19 years of data from the Cl-37 neutrino experiment at the Homestake mine in South Dakota and measurements of the solar wind mass flux by the IMP 8 spacecraft show a significant correlation. Larger solar wind mass flux observed at IMP 8 in Earth orbit corresponds to a larger neutrino capture rate at Homestake. The data and analysis that support the correlation and a possible mechanism to support the correlation will be discussed.
