This Report briefly introduces the primary topics discussed by presenters at the event, and includes background information on the potential Sun-climate connection, the measurement record from space, and potential perturbations of climate due to long-term solar variability.
Experts in solar physics, climate models, paleoclimatology, and atmospheric science assembled at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado for a workshop to consider the Sun's variability over time and potential Sun-climate connections.
This workshop report also summarizes some of the science questions explored by the participants as potential future research endeavors.
