Sami K Solanki presents the Harold Jeffreys Lecture on the links between our climate and the behaviour of the Sun, from the perspective of a solar physicist. Abstract

Radiation from the Sun makes Earth a habitable planet. Fluctuations in the solar output are therefore likely to affect the climate on Earth, but establishing both how the output of he Sun varies and how such variations influence Earth’s climate have proved tricky. But increased amounts of data from the Sun and about the climate on Earth over recent years mean that rapid progress is being made. In this paper, I review the current debate on the influence of the Sun and summarize the state of play in this area of solar physics.
