Cosmic ray intensity increases during high solar activity period for the solar cycles 22 and 23
The varying solar output is affected by the Sun’s activity and associated phenomena. Predictions of solar and geomagnetic activity are important for various technologies, including the operation of
Dynamism in the solar core
Recent results of a mixed shell model heated asymmetrically by transient increases in nuclear burning indicate the transient generation of small hot spots inside the Sun somewhere between 0.1 and 0.2
During most of the Phanerozoic eon, which began about a halfbillion years ago, there were few glacial intervals until the late Pliocene 2.75 million years ago. Beginning at that time, the Earth’s
Climate Stability and Policy: A Synthesis
During most of the Phanerozoic eon, which began about a half-billion years ago, there were few glacial intervals until the late Pliocene 2.75 million years ago. Beginning at that time, the Earth's
The Sun in Time
The Sun varies in time over at least twenty orders of magnitude. In this highly selective look at a vast subject, the focus is on solar variations related to the magnetic field structure of the
Interglacials, Milankovitch Cycles, Solar Activity, and Carbon Dioxide
The existing understanding of interglacial periods is that they are initiated by Milankovitch cycles enhanced by rising atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations. During interglacials, global
Climate Change: The Sun's Role
The sun's role in the earth's recent warming remains controversial even though there is a good deal of evidence to support the thesis that solar variations are a very significant factor in driving
How much has the Sun influenced Northern Hemisphere temperature trends? An ongoing debate
In order to evaluate how much Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) has influenced Northern Hemisphere surface air temperature trends, it is important to have reliable estimates of both quantities. Sixteen
Climate Stability and Policy
Starting in the 1980s and culminating in the Kyoto accords of 1997, followed by the awarding of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize to Al Gore and the United Nation’s International Panel on Climate Change


The role of solar forcing upon climate change
Cyclic Variation and Solar Forcing of Holocene Climate in the Alaskan Subarctic
High-resolution analyses of lake sediment from southwestern Alaska reveal cyclic variations in climate and ecosystems during the Holocene. These variations occurred with periodicities similar to
Trends, Rhythms, and Aberrations in Global Climate 65 Ma to Present
This work focuses primarily on the periodic and anomalous components of variability over the early portion of this era, as constrained by the latest generation of deep-sea isotope records.
Large-Scale Dynamics of the Convection Zone and Tachocline
The past few decades have seen dramatic progress in our understanding of solar interior dynamics, prompted by the relatively new science of helioseismology and increasingly sophisticated numerical
The Current State of Solar Modeling
Data from the GONG project and other helioseismic experiments reveal subtle errors in the models, such as an excess in sound speed just beneath the convection zone, which is plausible that the sound-speed differences reflect weak mixing in stellar interiors.
On the onset of thermal metastabilities in the solar core
For infinitesimal, homologous perturbations, stability analysis has found the solar radiative interior thermally stable. It is considered for the first time here whether stability is preserved when
A Causality Problem for Milankovitch
In their Perspective, Karner and Muller discuss recent studies of corals from around the world that shed doubt on the applicability of the Milankovitch theory to the termination of the penultimate glaciation, arguing that a fresh, unbiased look at the data is warranted.
Solar Models: Current Epoch and Time Dependences, Neutrinos, and Helioseismological Properties
We calculate accurate solar models and report the detailed time dependences of important solar quantities. We use helioseismology to constrain the luminosity evolution of the Sun and report the
Inevitability of a magnetic field in the Sun's radiative interior
The gas in the convective outer layers of the Sun rotates faster at the equator than in the polar regions, yet deeper inside (in the radiative zone) the gas rotates almost uniformly. There is a thin
▪ Abstract To what extent are changes in the Earth's global environment linked with fluctuations in its primary energy source, the radiation from a variable star, the Sun? A firm scientific basis for
