|aSolar blast refers to the sun's sphere of superheated gas powered by nuclear fusion and erupting into storms. We need to understand and predict this phenomenon because of potential disruptions on earth. High altitude ice cores are one means of studying the history of earth's climate and environment. Chemistry of this ice reveals a connection between eleven year sun cycles and earth climate. At present solar researchers can give only an hour warning before a solar blast strikes earth.
