Abstract:

The past four years have seen a growing interest in possible relationships between terrestrial weather and solar or solar wind variability. Most of the work in sunweather and climate studies have sought correlations on three time scales 1 climate changes over hundreds to thousands of years, related to longer term variations in the solar putput, 2 climate changes correlated with the 22-year solar cycle, and 3 weather variations on the scale of a few days, in response to transient solar events. While it has not been conclusively shown that there is a sun-weather connection on any of these time scales, in each case there exists enough supporting evidence to suggest that further study is warranted.
