2015 Sun-Climate Symposium

"Multi-Decadal Variability in Sun and Earth during the Space Era"

November 10-13, 2015   *   Savannah, Georgia


We are pleased to announce the 2015 Sun-Climate Symposium, which is motivated by NASA's Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) and the Sun-Climate Research Center (SCRC) - a joint venture between NASA GSFC and LASP at the University of Colorado.

Observations of the Sun and Earth from space have revolutionized our view and understanding about impacts of solar variability and anthropogenic forcing on Earth climate.  For more than three solar cycles since 1978, the total and spectral solar irradiance (TSI and SSI) and global terrestrial atmosphere/surface have been observed continuously, enabling unprecedented quality data for Sun-climate studies.  The primary objective of this symposium is to convene climate scientists, solar physicists, and experimentalists together for a better understanding how Earth climate system changes and responds to solar variability.  Sessions will be organized around the following themes and sub-sessions:

1.  Decadal variability of the Sun and Sun-like stars

     * TSI measurements and modeling

     * SSI measurements and modeling

     * Variability of the Sun-like stars

2.  Climate change theories and observations

     * Climate changes during the space era

     * Societal impacts from climate change and solar variability

     * Sun-climate connection: Top-down and bottom-up couplings

3.  Challenges and opportunities for future solar and Earth observations

     * Next generation observing systems for climate records

     * Challenges and opportunities in solar observations

The format for this symposium consists of invited and contributed oral and poster presentations in several theme sessions.  We encourage your participation and hope that you will share this announcement with colleagues.
