Borders (-[X.sub.s]; + [X.sub.s]) of the strip of alienation by the parameter [B.sub.s] are determined by the calculated dependence (magnetograms) of the TL magnetic field strength module [B.sub.l] (Fig.
Analytical representation of magnetograms (14) permits to determine the size of the band [+ or -] [X.sub.s] of the exclusion for a given parameter [B.sub.l]
To study their dynamics and physical properties we plot a sequence of magnetograms where we can easily identify two magnetic features (see upper panels in Figure 4 where the black/white plus signs are used to highlight the corresponding negative/positive magnetic elements).
A deeper analysis, using sequences of magnetograms, reveals the influence of these vortices affecting the dynamics of magnetic concentrations.

His site provides real-time maps and magnetograms, with links to where the data come from.
Accurate spectroscopy, detailed comparisons of irradiance with magnetograms, and the application of models such as the aforementioned field-dispersal model should allow us to recreate the solar magnetic field and the solar irradiance over time and compare it with historical weather records.
