Reprocessing for 2019 through a week ago is complete. It took a week because after three days – when it was nearly done – a Windows update came in and rebooted my machine. We lost all the data and had to start over.
It appears as the Earth’s electromagnetic field has been increasing of late, roughly for the last three years. However, early 2019 data looks like it may contain an error. We’ll have to do some forensic analysis, but potentially, the field may have been stepping down relatively quickly. You can even see why someone might argue that the trend has been down over the last three years (which is disingenuous in my view.)
Keep in mind that our interpretation of the data could change rapidly.
Below is an animation of the first three months of 2021. We’re no longer building the animation as we structure new data so that we can get the base data sooner. Later, we’ll be able to create animations in a parallel process.
