Hey everyone today I will be discussing on suns influences on climate.
THE SUN PROVIDES THE ENERGY THAT DRIVES THE EARTH’S CLIMATE SYSTEM
Variations in the composition and intensity of incident solar radiation hitting the Earth may produce changes in global and regional climate which are both different and additional to those from man-made climate change. In the current epoch, solar variation impacts on regional climate appear to be quite significant in, for example, Europe in winter, but on a global scale are likely to be much smaller than those due to increasing greenhouse gases.
Has sun contributed to global warming
It is not possible to explain the warming of the past sixty year son the basis of changes in sun activity alone. Over the past 150 years an overall rise in solar activity has eventually contributed to global warming, mainly during the first half of the twentieth century. The effect is, however, estimated to be so much smaller than the total net human forcing of the climate system through the emission of greenhouse gases and other factors.
The Earth's climate system depends so much on the Sun for its energy. Solar radiation warms the atmosphere and is fundamental to atmospheric composition, while the distribution of solar heating across the planet produces global wind patterns and leads to the formation of clouds, storms, and rainfall. The Solar Influence on Climate provides an unparalleled introduction to this vitally important relationship.
