We invite you to submit an abstract to the AGU fall meeting session
SA018 "Solar and heliospheric forcings and their effects on climate"
We have two invited presenters:
Cora Randall will give a presentation about electron precipitation
effects on the atmosphere.
Lesley Gray will speak about solar irradiance effects on climate.
Session Title: Solar and heliospheric forcings and their effects on climate
Understanding the effects of solar and heliospheric variability on
climate is a fundamental step towards quantifying climate sensitivity to
external forcings. Pathways through which solar and heliospheric
forcings affect climate remain poorly established despite the efforts of
the scientific community. Moreover, the relatively short satellite
record hinders a clean separation of observed signals from internal
climate variability. In this context, improved understanding of the
whole atmospheric response to solar and heliospheric forcings through
physical modelling and observational analysis are needed. This session
will bring together recent advances in estimating the atmospheric
response to short and long-term variability in solar and heliospheric
forcings. Special emphasis will be placed on energetic particle
precipitation and solar spectral irradiance variations over the 11-year
solar cycle, and their influence on the thermal, dynamical, and chemical
structure of the whole atmosphere. Abstracts covering any portion of the
atmosphere or ocean responses to solar variability are welcome.
The session is cross-listed among atmospheric sciences, global
environmental change, solar and heliospheric physics, and magnetospheric
physics. The session ID is 13634.
