Abstract:

The solar magnetic sector structure appears to influence the average area of high positive vorticity centers low pressure troughs observed during winter in the northern hemisphere at the 300 mb level. The average area of high vorticity decreases during a few days near the times at which sector boundaries are carried pas the earth by the solar wind. The amplitude of the effect is about ten percent.
