The Role of the Sun in Climate Change

Front Cover
Reviews the physics of the concept of solar forcing, tracing its history from its beginnings in the early 1800s to its apparent success in the 1920s, to its near demise in the 1950s and its resurrection. The emphasis is on solar variation as a driver for climate change, with only a brief discussion of other mechanisms.
