The 2nd Nagoya Workshop on the Relationship between Solar Activity and Climate Changes (2nd announcement)

The 2nd Nagoya Workshop on the Relationship between
Solar Activity and Climate Changes (2nd announcement)

 We are pleased to announce The 2nd Nagoya Workshop on the Relationship between Solar Activity and Climate Changes. This Workshop aims to promote the interdisciplinary discussion about topics related to the relationship between solar activity and terrestrial climate variability. It covers the long-term change in the Sun and heliosphere, and its direct and indirect influences upon the Earth, including the atmosphere and climate. The Workshop consists of invited talks by distinguished speakers, contributed talks, and discussions. We welcome anyone who is interested in any topics on solar activity and climate changes.

* Date: 16-17 January, 2012

* Workshop Venue: Noyori Conference Hall, Nagoya University (Nagoya, Japan)
  (bldg. E3-1 in
 Access map

* Topics:
  - Variation of the sunspot activity and the heliospheric environment
- Variation of solar irradiation and its impact on climate
- Solar variability in paleoclimate
- Influence of high energy particles on cloud and climate
- Solar impact on the upper atmosphere
- Solar impact on the stratosphere and troposphere
