The extreme solar storm of May 1921: observations and a complex topological model

Lundstedt, H.; Persson, Tomas LU and Andersson, V. (2015) In Annales Geophysicae 33(1). p.109-116
Abstract
A complex solid torus model was developed in order to be able to study an extreme solar storm, the so-called "Great Storm" or "New York Railroad Storm" of May 1921, when neither high spatial and time resolution magnetic field measurements, solar flare nor coronal mass ejection observations were available. We suggest that a topological change happened in connection with the occurrence of the extreme solar storm. The solar storm caused one of the most severe space weather effects ever.
