SH011:
Solar Radiative Variability: From Minutes to Millennia. The Sun’s Influence on the Earth’s Space Environment, Atmosphere, and Climate





Session ID#: 23451

Session Description:
Variability of the incoming solar irradiance and its effects on the terrestrial environment and climate have received wide attention in recent years. There is a continuous effort to reduce measurement uncertainties of the total and spectral solar irradiances. Physical and empirical modelling have also made considerable progress in reconstructing accurate and reliable records. At the same time, numerical models and observations have been extensively used to characterize the influence of solar irradiance variability on Earth's atmosphere and climate. This session invites abstracts on measurements and models of solar spectral and total irradiance on all time scales, as well as abstracts on the response of the surface, atmosphere and the heliosphere to solar radiative forcing. Abstracts focused on comparisons of surface and atmospheric effects to different solar irradiance datasets are particularly welcome.
