The fourth signature of stellar noise: magnetic cycles

Xavier Dumusque

The Sun presents a 11-year magnetic cycle that is characterized by a variation of the number of magnetic features on its surface. We know that in these magnetic regions the convection is greatly reduced, which implies a redshifted local spectrum. Therefore, a variation of the the number of magnetic features on the solar surface implies a radial-velocity variation...
