The Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP) Fellow Award Ceremony and the SCOSTEP/PRESTO (Predictability of the Variable Solar-Terrestrial Coupling) Online Seminar will be held on 23 January 2024 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM CET.
In this talk, observational evidence of the climate response to solar activity variations on different space and time scales will be presented. Attempts were made to explain some of the observed links using numerical models driven by different forcing mechanisms such as UV solar irradiance, precipitating energetic particles, total solar energy influx. The chain which links the forcing and climate response includes a multitude of chemical, physical and dynamical processes and requires application of highly complex numerical models. The presenter will briefly describe the nature of these processes, their climate effects, the level of uncertainty for each mechanism and the most promising directions for future studies of climate response to solar variability.
