CAWSES-II in Japan

TG1. What are the solar influences on climate?




Climate And Weather of the Sun-Earth System -II (CAWSES-II)

Solar variability drives geo-space and the atmosphere on time scales ranging from minutes to millennia. Feedbacks are inherent in the Earth system and may amplify the direct forcing effects from the Sun. The influence of this solar variability on Earth’s climate is a key issue of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and one that continues to be highlighted by policy makers, climate change skeptics, and the media.
