Solar neutrinos are monitored in experiments at the Homestake Mine, at Gallex (now GNO), and the Superkamiokande experiment. In 1979 it was proposed by the author, Sakurai that a periodicity in the flux might account for part of the elusive solar neutrino problem. The SNO results confirmed MSW matter oscillations, but the periodicity of ~ 26-30 months remains in the data of all the experiments. A new mystery occurs in the sun which fails to yield to contemporary theory. SEE:http://arxiv.org/abs/1111.5530 not yet published. pete

Interesting, what type of causatives for this phenomena are being speculated?

Trakar. So far nothing fits. Anomalies, like the slow precession of the perihelion of Mercury, the photoelectric effect, the blackbody UV catastrophe failure,or the Homestake solar neutrino puzzle, often lead to interesting new physics. Somebody will figure it and the Koides formula out. pete

Since it is quasi-periodic, I suspect that this will not result in new physics, but rather a more detailed application of turbulence, or some similar known but chaotic science. Either way, it bears continued study.

So it is definitely not an equipment or methodological issue? Timing would seem to rule out equipment, but involved statistical analyses have been known to produce such methodological anamolies upon occassion. There are numerous examples of 'budgetons'.
