The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet to minor storm levels with a slight chance for isolated periods at major storm levels on day one (14 July), due the arrival of the 12 July CME.
For the study, Dickman and his colleague Le-Qing Wu placed 7 pigeons in a pitch-black room and used a 3D coil system to cancel out the planet's natural geomagnetic field and generate a tunable, artificial magnetic field inside the room.

However, this replication shows the lowest payout rate exactly at the time of the full moon, which Radin explained with increased geomagnetic field values at this time (Radin, 1997, p.
Unknown Factors In Chronobiology", presented by Professor Alexander Dubrov, provides an analysis of data published in the papers of leading chronobiologists and biosymmentrists, demonstrating that the variations of the geomagnetic field and tide-forming forces of the Moon and Sun provide the basis for the homeostasis in living beings.
