that the revealed long term periodicities modulate the amplitude of secular cycles , the preferable duration of which can be 60 years, and the most preferable dura tion can be 88 years and, possibly, not less than 105 years. It is interesting to study the dynamics and form of secular cycles on the revealed preferable time scale.
