  journal={Astrophysics and Space Science},
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 (TSI) satellite composite time series has been revised using algorithm updates based on 13 years of accumulated mission experience and corrections to ACRIMSAT/ACRIM3 results for scattering and diffraction derived from recent testing at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics/Total solar… Expand
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 totalExpand
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. Expand
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 aExpand
A reevaluation of the solar constant based on a 42-year total solar irradiance time series and a reconciliation of spaceborne observations

Total solar irradiance's effect on the performance of empirical models for estimating global solar radiation: An empirical-based review
Abstract Many Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) and Solar Constant (SC) values are given and used in the literature, sometimes leading to confusion. The TSI value is relevant and has great importance inExpand
Reconstruction and prediction of the total solar irradiance: From the Medieval Warm Period to the 21st century
Abstract Total solar irradiance is the primary energy source of the Earth’s climate system and therefore its variations can contribute to natural climate change. This variability is characterized by,Expand
Climate responses to SATIRE and SIM-based spectral solar forcing in a 3D atmosphere-ocean coupled GCM
We apply two reconstructed spectral solar forcing scenarios, one SIM (Spectral Irradiance Monitor) based, the other the SATIRE (Spectral And Total Irradiance REconstruction) modeled, as inputs to theExpand

Detailed line-by-line radiation transfer calculations, which were performed under different atmospheric conditions for the most important greenhouse gases water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, and ozone, are presented to assess the CO2 global warming by means of an advanced two-layer climate model and to disclose some larger discrepancies in calculating the climate sensitivity.
