AbstractThe solar polarity reversalThe cessation of high latitude CMEsClose Relationship- based on the observations for cycles 21 & 23.
IntroductionDisappearance and reformation of polar coronal holes. (Webb, Davis & McIntosh 1984; Bilenko 2002; Harvey & Recely 2002)Disappearance of polar crown filaments(PCF).(Waldmeier 1960; Makarov, Tlatov & Sivaraman 2001)
IntroductionUsing CME data of cycles 21 & 23, they tested how CMEs are intimately connected to the mechanism of polarity reversal.

SummaryThe epochs of solar polar reversal are closely related to the cessation of HL CME activities.Before the completion of the reversal, several temporary reversals take place with corresponding spikes in the HL CME rates.
