Abstract

A test of an apparent association between solar corpuscular radiation (measured by planetary-scale geomagnetic disturbance) and the subsequent behavior of the sea-level pressure distribution is carried out with completely new and independent data. The new results corroborate the earlier findings which indicated increased persistence in the pressure distribution during the first week and decreased persistence during the second to third week following large geomagnetic disturbances.
