Solar forcing of Earth's surface temperature in PMIP3 simulations of the last millennium

Le, Thanh LU (2015) In Atmospheric Science Letters 16(3). p.285-290
Abstract
This study quantitatively diagnose the linkage between Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) and Earth's near-surface air temperature (TAS) of past 1000-year as simulated by Paleoclimate Modeling Intercomparison Project 3 (PMIP3) models. The results demonstrate that there is causal feedback of TAS from TSI variations, especially in the tropical and subtropical regions. The consistency between models in simulating solar signal in TAS responses is significant in these regions with more than 70% selected models showing agreement. There is no agreement between models in simulating TSI-TAS relationship in mid and high latitude regions.
