Solar tsunamis are produced by enormous explosions in the Sun's atmosphere called coronal mass ejections (CMEs).
Washington, July 12 ( ANI ): NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the Japanese Hinode spacecraft have observed a solar tsunami to provide the first accurate estimates of the Sun's magnetic field.
Similar to tsunamis on Earth, the shape of solar tsunamis is changed by the environment through which they move.
45pm) This series seems to be getting more and more gruesome every week, tonight after a solar tsunami flings the Tardis into a 22nd century Earth, the Doctor, Amy and Rory find themselves outside a factory that makes clones for sending out on acid-mining quests.
A solar tsunami causes the Tardis to land at a futuristic factory on Earth, where humans are making use of a mysterious pool to create dronelike doppelgangers of themselves.
NASA said earth orbiting satellites detected a solar tsunami or a C3-class solar flare on August 1 around 0855 UT (3:55 am EST).
On August 1st of this year, nearly the entire Earth-facing side of the Sun erupted in a tumult of activity, comprising a large solar flare, a solar tsunami, multiple filaments of magnetism lifting off the solar surface, radio bursts, and half a dozen coronal mass ejections (CMEs).
This new capability will dramatically enhance scientists' ability to predict if and how these solar tsunamis could affect Earth.
