  journal={Geophysical Research Letters},
The ACRIM‐gap (1989.5–1991.75) continuity dilemma for satellite TSI observations is resolved by bridging the satellite TSI monitoring gap between ACRIM1 and ACRIM2 results with TSI derived from Krivova et al.'s (2007) proxy model based on variations of the surface distribution of solar magnetic flux. ‘Mixed’ versions of ACRIM and PMOD TSI composites are constructed with their composites' original values except for the ACRIM gap, where Krivova modeled TSI is used to connect ACRIM1 and ACRIM2… 
ACRIM total solar irradiance satellite composite validation versus TSI proxy models
The satellite total solar irradiance (TSI) database provides a valuable record for investigating models of solar variation used to interpret climate changes. The 35-year ACRIM total solar irradiance
ACRIM‐gap and total solar irradiance revisited: Is there a secular trend between 1986 and 1996?
A gap in the total solar irradiance (TSI) measurements between ACRIM‐1 and ACRIM‐2 led to the ongoing debate on the presence or not of a secular trend between the minima preceding cycles 22 (in 1986)
Comparison of Decadal Trends among Total Solar Irradiance Composites of Satellite Observations
We present a new analysis of the two-decade-old controversy over interpretation of satellite observations of total solar irradiance (TSI) since 1978 and the implications of our findings for TSI as a
Modeling Quiet Solar Luminosity Variability from TSI Satellite Measurements and Proxy Models during 1980-2018
This study uses three recently proposed T SI proxy models that do not present any TSI increase during the ACRIM-gap and adjusts the TSI proxy models to agree with the data patterns before and after the ACrIM- gap, finding that these models miss a slowly varying TSI component.
ACRIM3 and the Total Solar Irradiance database
The effects of scattering and diffraction on the observations of the ACRIMSAT/ACRIM3 satellite TSI monitoring mission have been characterized by the preflight calibration approach for satellite total
Total Solar Irradiance Observations
The record of total solar irradiance (TSI) during the past 35 years has overlapping observations from space which can be merged to a composite, and three are available, namely the PMOD, the ACRIM and
Reconstruction of total and spectral solar irradiance from 1974 to 2013 based on KPVT, SoHO/MDI and SDO/HMI observations
Total and spectral solar irradiance are key parameters in the assessment of solar influence on changes in the Earth's climate. We present a reconstruction of daily solar irradiance obtained using the


Secular total solar irradiance trend during solar cycles 21–23
A series of satellite total solar irradiance (TSI) observations can be combined in a precise solar magnetic cycle length composite TSI database by determining the relationship between two
Revision of the PMOD Composite during Solar Cycle 21
Since November 1978 a set of total solar irradiance (TSI) measurements from space is available, yielding a time series of more than 25 years. Presently, there are three TSI composites available,
Phenomenological reconstructions of the solar signature in the Northern Hemisphere surface temperature records since 1600
[1] A phenomenological thermodynamic model is adopted to estimate the relative contribution of the solar-induced versus anthropogenic-added climate forcing during the industrial era. We compare
