2018 Sun-Climate Symposium:
"The State of the TSI and SSI Climate Records at the Junction of the SORCE and TSIS Missions"
March 19-23, 2018   ---   Lake Arrowhead, California

* Call for Abstracts:  Due Jan. 5, 2018 *

We are pleased to announce the 2018 Sun-Climate Symposium, which is sponsored by 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 of how solar variability and other natural and anthropogenic forcings impact Earth's atmosphere and climate. Since 1978 - more than three solar cycles - the total and spectral solar irradiance (TSI and SSI) and global terrestrial atmosphere and surface have been observed continuously, providing unprecedented quality data for Sun-climate studies. The 2018 Symposium will convene experts from across the solar-terrestrial community and from various disciplines that include Sun-climate connections, atmospheric physics and chemistry, heliophysics, and metrology to discuss solar and climate observations and models during this crucial period near the end of the Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) and the start of the Total and Spectral Solar Irradiance Sensor (TSIS) Mission.  Sessions will be organized around six themes:
1.  The creation, significance, and applications of accurate Climate Data Records

2.  The state of the TSI and SSI Climate Records near the end of the SORCE Mission

3.  What was learned about solar variability and impacts on the terrestrial environment during SC24?

4.  What are the expectations for the next solar minimum and SC25?

5.  Stellar variability and connections to the Sun

6.  Next generation of solar and atmospheric observations

The format for this symposium consists of invited and contributed oral and poster presentations.   We encourage your participation and hope that you will share this announcement with colleagues.  Please join us!
