Top-down solar modulation of climate: evidence for centennial-scale change

Abstract:

During the descent into the recent 'exceptionally' low solar minimum, observations have revealed a larger change in solar UV emissions than seen at the same phase of previous solar cycles. This is particularly true at wavelengths responsible for stratospheric ozone production and heating. This implies that 'top-down' solar modulation could be a larger factor in long-term tropospheric change than previously believed, many climate models allowing only for the 'bottom-up' effect of the less-vari...
