Analyzing the combined influence of solar activity and El Niño on streamflow across southern Canada

It is well known that the spatial and temporal patterns in streamflow can be correlated with many teleconnections, e.g., solar activity and climatic phenomena such as El Niño. However, fewer studies

Are southern South American Rivers linked to the solar variability?

This article explores the Sun's influence on the hydrological cycle in southern South America (SSA) at the range of interannual‐to‐multidecadal scales from the early 1900s to 2011. The solar

Combined Effects of Solar Activity and El Niño on Hydrologic Patterns in the Yoshino River Basin, Japan

Relatively little is known about the combined effects of solar activity and El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) on both surface and subsurface hydrologic patterns, especially in Japan. Analyses of

Solar motion and discharge of Paraná River, South America: Evidence for a link

A link between climate and the motion of the Sun around the barycenter of the solar system has been suggested, mostly on the basis of interannual cycles observed in climatological data from the

Detection of Linkage Between Solar and Lunar Cycles and Runoff of the World's Large Rivers

It is an ongoing concern that global hydrological cycle can be likely intensified under context of climate change and anthropogenic actions. Here, our results show that the solar and lunar periodic

Solar Forcing of Climate

Solar activity is evident both in the equatorial activity centres and in the polar magnetic field variations. The total solar irradiance variation is due to the former component. During the



Impact of variations in solar activity on hydrological decadal patterns in northern Italy

[1] Using spectral and statistical analyses of discharges and basin average precipitation rates acquired over the Po River since the early 1800s, we investigate the impact of variations in solar

Is solar variability reflected in the Nile River

We investigate the possibility that solar variability influences North African climate by using annual records of the water level of the Nile collected in 622–1470 A.D. The time series of these

Solar activity and the streamflow of the Paraná River

River streamflows are excellent climatic indicators since they integrate precipitations, infiltrations and evapotranspiration over large areas. We studied the streamflow records for the Parana River,

Sunspots, El Niño, and the levels of Lake Victoria, East Africa

[1] An association of high sunspot numbers with rises in the level of Lake Victoria, East Africa, has been the focus of many investigations and vigorous debate during the last century. In this paper,

Southward Migration of the Intertropical Convergence Zone Through the Holocene

The Cariaco Basin record exhibits strong correlations with climate records from distant regions, including the high-latitude Northern Hemisphere, providing evidence for global teleconnections among regional climates.

Strong coherence between solar variability and the monsoon in Oman between 9 and 6 kyr ago

A high-resolution record of oxygen isotope variations, for the period from 9.6 to 6.1 kyr before present, in a Th–U-dated stalagmite from Oman suggests that one of the primary controls on centennial- to decadal-scale changes in tropical rainfall and monsoon intensity during this time are variations in solar radiation.

Evidence for solar forcing on the Indian monsoon during the last millennium

Rainfall and drought in equatorial east Africa during the past 1,100 years

A decade-scale reconstruction of rainfall and drought in equatorial east Africa over the past 1,100 years is presented, based on lake-level and salinity fluctuations of Lake Naivasha inferred from three different palaeolimnological proxies: sediment stratigraphy and the species compositions of fossil diatom and midge assemblages.

Solar variability and the levels of Lake Victoria, East Africa, during the last millenium

A new diatom series with 1–6 year resolution from Lake Victoria, East Africa, shows that lake level minima occurred ca. 820–760, 680–660, 640–620, 370–340, and 220–150 calendar years BP. Inferred

Solar influence on the Indian Ocean Monsoon through dynamical processes

The result of paleoclimate studies on the relationship between the Indian monsoon and solar activity, inferred from the analysis of stalagmites in Oman, is confirmed by using a modern meteorological
