2015 Sun-Climate Symposium:

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

November 10-13, 2015   *   Savannah, Georgia

Call for Abstracts:  Due August 7

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.  Please visit the meeting website for a detailed program description, abstract form and submittal instructions, confirmed speaker listing, and logistical information:


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.  Eight sessions will be organized around the following themes and sub-sessions:

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

     1a. TSI measurements and modeling

     1b. SSI measurements and modeling

     1c. Variability of the Sun-like stars

2.  Climate change theories and observations

     2a. Climate changes during the space era

     2b. Societal impacts from climate change and solar variability

     2c. Sun-climate connection: Top-down and bottom-up couplings

3.  Challenges and opportunities for future solar and Earth observations

     3a. Next generation observing systems for climate records

     3b. 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.
