How do solar flares affect communication?
A solar flare is a huge explosion that occurs on the surface of the sun. These explosions emit large amounts of radioactive material into space that can find its way to Earth. This radioactive material thrown from the sun during a solar flare can interfere with the magnetic fields of Earth, according to NASA.

Solar flares can make communication by radio and telephonedifficult at times. The earth itself is strongly protected by its magnetic field. Whenthere is a great deal of solar… activity we experience this as abeautiful display of Aurora Borealis reaching out from the Northand Aurora Australis reaching out from the south. The more activethe sun is, the further away from earth's magnetic poles this lightwill be visible in the sky. Sometimes the ionic particles from the sun are of such a strengththat they will saturate the electronics on board varioussatellites. This will interfere with satellite communication and wemight lose TV signals or even phone connections. The ionicparticles can in some cases destroy parts of a satellite'selectronics and cause it to malfunction. There is little to indicate that this radiation from the sun is ofany danger to electronics located down on earth.. A massive solar super storm could possibly penetrate the earth'smagnetic shielding to a certain extent and cause problems withordinary electronics. This fortunately does not happen very oftenand would most likely render quite a few of our satellites useless. One day if the worst come to the worst and we do have a solar superstorm, then I will just be outside watching the sky and lettingmyself be fascinated by this amazing show from the twin auroras.They might even be visible in daylight. ______________________________________________ In 1870, a severe solar storm (there were actually a series ofthese throughout the 1870s) caused such an intense inductivecurrent in long telegraph wires that operators no longer needed toconnect their systems to batteries in order to send telegrams. In acouple of cases, the induced current was high enough to start firesin the telegraph offices! Particles in the sun can affect power lines on the earth in thesame way and there have been 2 large power outages attributed tosolar activity. These are somewhat predictable and the solution isusually to distribute the power better so that long power linesdon't need to carry as much power. In other words have as manypower plants on line as possible during these events. The radiation from solar flares is deadly to people above theearth's magnetic shield and above the atmosphere for exampleastronauts travelling to the moon, on the moon, travelling to Marsor on Mars need heavy shielding to survive a strong solar storm.
X-rays and UV radiation emitted by solar flares can affect Earth's ionosphere and disrupt long-range radio communications. Direct radio emission at decimetric wavelengths may …disturb operation of radars and other devices operating at these frequencies.
They don't affect people directly, but they can disrupt our electronic communications systems, particularly those dependent on satellites.
It can sometimes affect the earths weather as the energetic particles affect the atmosphere and cause auroras and winds. If a potential solar flare was released then it would… be potential as it can do biochemical damage to the human body. This info was obtained from wikipedia in the hazards section so don't get me wrong. ANSWERED BY AZZAROKS OR AZZALINA
Coronal Mass Ejections however provide hydrogen, which in turn helps degrade ozone when present in the "ozone layer". The sun is the primary contributor though to the healt…h of the ozone layer. The sun creates the ozone we need in our atmosphere and the lack of sun is what causes the thinning layer that we refer to as the hole. Some people believe man contributes to this natural process. Interestingly enough is the fact that scientists believe that the largest "hole" in our atmosphere occurred in 1859. This is also the year that we recorded the largest solar flare activity. Scientifically, there is a definitive correlation between the two issues.
Typically 3-5 days. It depends on how violent the solar event is.
The operative word is 'overwhelm' .
Solar flares are explosions of gas made around the Sun and I dont know about the Solar System but they affect our planet by: If the solar fluctuations reach our planet they ca…n knock out all power
nothing at the moment, we are protected by a force field if you like wich surrounds the earth meeting at the polls crated by the core of the earth spinning, this magnetic fiel…d fights off the solar flares and pushes them past us, some of the energy matter can come down to polls and when it collides with the atmosphere it creates a light show, also known as the northern/southern lights, but for know i dont think it worrys us
solar flares are things that come shooting down off the sun and then they hit earth and make an earth quake
Solar flares come from sunspots, and when they are heavy, it is common for television, radio and cell phone use to become problematic to a certain degree (more an annoyance th…an anything). This same activity also causes the Aurora Borealis, or "Northern Lights". It is suspected that sunspot activity over repeated long periods (lasting several hundred years each) may be connected to climate fluctuations here on earth, but this is still being investigated.
solar flares would demolish all of earth but if small they probably would not affect us. remember wee are about 94.1 million miles away from the sun.
They don't. Next question, please . . .
That is highly unlikely. Earth's magnetic field prevents the effects of solar flares from coming close to the surface in all but the most severe instances.
Their effect on natural processes is purely the beautiful aurora. Their effects on man-made equipment can be very damaging, disabling telecommunications and possibly inducing… overloads in electrical supply networks.
