Solar radiation incident at the Earth’s surface is the ultimate energy source for life on the planet, and largely determines the climatic conditions of our habitats. Part of Springer Nature. The greenhouse effect: some of the infrared radiation passes through the atmosphere, but most is absorbed and re-emitted in all directions by greenhouse gas molecules and clouds.  |  The amount of solar energy reaching Earth also affects climate. For example, increases in oxygen-deficient regions of the ocean caused by climate change are projected to enhance the emissions of nitrous oxide, an important greenhouse and ozone-depleting gas.

With the help of the Sun's total and open magnetic flux and of historical records of sunspot numbers and other proxies of solar activity, it is possible to reconstruct not just the total irradiance of the Sun and its variation over the last couple of centuries, but also changes in the solar spectrum (in particular the irradiance in the UV) and in the cosmic-ray flux during this period.

Interactions between climate and solar UV radiation will affect cycling of elements other than carbon, and so will influence the concentration of greenhouse and ozone-depleting gases.

According to the 2001 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the resulting imbalance between incoming solar radiation and outgoing thermal radiation will likely cause the Earth to heat up over the next century, possibly melting polar ice caps, causing sea levels to rise, creating violent global weather patterns, and increasing vegetation density (IPCC, 2001). 2013 Jun 20;8(6):e68858.

As solar energy will be an increasingly important renewable energy source in future years, the study of how climate change affects both its temporal and spatial variability is very relevant. When Earth’s orbit is at its most elliptic, about 23 percent more incoming solar radiation reaches Earth at our planet’s closest approach to the Sun each year than does at its farthest departure from the Sun. All these quantities, which represent different paths by which the Sun could affect climate, are found to evolve in a very similar manner.

The effect of this is to warm the Earth’s surface and the lower atmosphere.

The amount of solar energy reaching the surface is a major component of the surface energy balance and governs a large number of diverse surface processes, such as evaporation and associated hydrological components, snow and glacier melt, plant photosynthesis and related terrestrial carbon uptake, as well as the diurnal and seasonal course of surface temperatures. The Sun affects the climate through several physical processes: For one thing, the total radiation, particularly that in the ultraviolet range, varies with solar activity. © 2020 Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

This illustration shows the major ocean currents throughout the globe. It has also major practical implications, for example, for solar energy technologies and agricultural productivity. The aim of this course is to develop a thorough understanding of the fundamental role of radiation in the context of climate change. Absorption of solar radiation by ozone shields the terrestrial surface from harmful ultraviolet light and warms the stratosphere, producing maximum temperatures of −15 to 10 °C (5 to 50 °F) at an altitude of 50 km (30 miles). Within the relatively narrow band of EUV wavelengths, the sun’s output varies not by a minuscule 0.1%, but by whopping factors of 10 or more.
