Abstract : An influence of the solar magnetic sector structure on the terrestrial atmospheric vorticity has been reported. The reported effect persists when the number of sector boundary passages examined is increased from 54 to 131. The same effect is found independently in the latitude zones 35 deg. N - 55 deg. N and greater than 55 deg. N. The depth of the sector-related effect is much greater than the depth of any other minimum in an extended analysis. These results support the reality of the effect.
