We show the existence of the strong inverse correlation between the temporal variations of the toroidal component of the magnetic field in the solar tachocline (the bottom of the convective zone) and the Earth magnetic field (the Y-component). The possibility that the hypothetical solar axions, which can transform into photons in external electric or magnetic fields (the inverse Primakoff effect), can be the instrument by which the magnetic field of the Sun convective zone modulates the… 
Recent Progress in Search for Dark Sector Signatures
Abstract Many difficulties are encountered when attempting to pinpoint a common origin for several observed astrophysical anomalies, and when assessing their tension with existing exclusion limits.

Axion mechanism of the Sun luminosity and solar dynamo - geodynamo connection
We show existence of strong negative correlation between the temporal variations of magnetic field toroidal component of the solar tachocline (the bottom of convective zone) and the Earth magnetic

TLDR
The results exclude the recently suggested possibility of detecting cosmic axions through their 2y decay and probably the possibility of measuring the solar hadronic axion flux which, according to the authors' bounds, must be less than 2 &( 10 of the solar luminosity.
Axion searches with helioscopes and astrophysical signatures for axion(-like) particles
Axions should be produced copiously in stars such as the Sun. The first part of this paper reviews the capabilities and performance of axion helioscopes. The mechanism they rely on is described and

TLDR
A formalism which is adapted to study the evolution of a photon (axion, graviton) beam in the presence of external fields is developed, and the possibility of detecting axions by a measurement of the magnetically induced birefringence of the vacuum is discussed.
First results from the CERN axion solar telescope.
Hypothetical axionlike particles with a two-photon interaction would be produced in the sun by the Primakoff process. In a laboratory magnetic field ("axion helioscope"), they would be transformed
Implications of the cosmic infrared background for light production and the star formation history in the Universe
The Cosmic Background due to the integrated radiation from galaxies over the whole life of the Universe is reviewed. We find that this background is well constrained by measurements. The total power
Hydraulic concentration of magnetic fields in the solar photosphere. III - Fields of one or two kilogauss
Detailed analysis of weak and strong lines now suggests that the magnetic fields in the isolated intense flux tubes in the supergranule boundaries in the solar photosphere may be as large as 2000

TLDR
The astrophysical and cosmological limits which define a small window of allowed axion mass above 3 eV are discussed, effectively closing this window of axions with masses between 3 and 8 eV, unless a severe cancellation of axionic decay amplitudes occurs.
Dark matter and background light
Abstract Progress in observational cosmology over the past five years has established that the Universe is dominated dynamically by dark matter and dark energy. Both these new and apparently
Sterile neutrinos: The Dark side of the light fermions
The discovery of neutrino masses suggests the likely existence of gauge singlet fermions that participate in the neutrino mass generation via the seesaw mechanism. The masses of the corresponding
