Long-term climate variations and solar effects

Muscheler, Raimund LU ; Beer, Jurg and Kromer, Bernd (2003) Proceedings of the ISCS 2003; Solar Variability as an Input to the Earth's Environment In European Space Agency, (Special Publication) ESA SP 535. p.305-316
Abstract
The cosmogenic radionuclides <sup>14</sup>C, <sup>10</sup>Be and <sup>36</sup>Cl allow us to trace solar variability several tens of millennia back in time. Different methods of reconstructing past solar variability based on radionuclide concentrations measured in ice cores will be discussed. The similarity in the variability of measurements of solar magnetic activity and solar irradiance over the last 20 years makes cosmogenic radionuclides a promising tool for reconstructing the variability of solar irradiance in the past. The analysis of many well-dated, high-resolution climate records and comparison with radionuclide records clearly indicates that solar forcing plays an important role in climate... (More)

However, the underlying mechanisms are still a matter of debate and the climate records do not yet show a conclusive picture. (Less)
