    ‘Terminators’ on the Sun trigger plasma tsunamis and the start of new solar cycles

    In a pair of new papers, scientists paint a picture of how solar cycles suddenly die, potentially causing tsunamis of plasma to race through the Sun’s interior and trigger the birth of the next sunspot cycle only a few short weeks later.
