Abstract
We analyze here how future solar neutrino experiments could detect neutrino flux fluctuations due to magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) perturbations on the solar plasma. We state that if such time fluctuations are detected, this would provide a unique signature of the resonant spin-flavor precession (RSFP) mechanism as a solution to the solar neutrino problem.
