Abstract : An evaluation is made of the sunspot problem from the point of view of small magnetic Reynolds numbers allowing for slippage between the flow and the magnetic field. The evaluation is based on recently available laboratory experiments with liquid metal, which are predictable with a theory allowing for the damping of the turbulence, and therefore of the mixing length as a function of the magnetic field.
