Knowledge of solar variability and its effects on the Earth is essential since the Sun affects almost every aspect of our lives. Direct observations of the Sun, usually of sunspots, with some continuity, exist only since about 1700. Understanding of long-term solar variability must then depend on proxy data, such as visual auroral observations, measurements of magnetic activity, and the radiocarbon record. These also give us information on the interaction between the solar wind, the… CONTINUE READING
