According to the 2001 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the resulting imbalance between incoming solar radiation and outgoing thermal radiation will likely cause the Earth to heat up over the next century, possibly melting polar ice caps, causing sea levels to rise, creating violent global weather patterns, and increasing vegetation density (IPCC, 2001). From rising temperatures, warmer winter weather and more frequent extreme floods and droughts, the changing environment will greatly affect our day-to-day lives. Climate change affects cloud cover characteristics and consequently directly affects the performance of solar energy technologies.

Of particular importance is the sun's extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation, which peaks during the years around solar maximum. It is therefore extremely unlikely that the Sun has caused the observed global temperature warming trend over the past half-century.

The aim of this course is to develop a thorough understanding of the fundamental role of radiation in the context of climate change. Geophys Res Lett 36:L02806. There is increasing evidence that the amount of solar radiation incident at the Earth’s surface is not stable over the years but undergoes significant decadal variations. There is increasing evidence that the amount of solar radiation incident at the Earth’s surface is not stable over the years but undergoes significant decadal variations. In the three decades following 1978, the combination of solar and volcanic activity is estimated to have had a slight cooling influence. J Geophys Res Atmos 114:D00d01. Interactive effects of ozone depletion and climate change on biogeochemical cycles. Absorption of solar radiation by ozone shields the terrestrial surface from harmful ultraviolet light and warms the stratosphere, producing maximum temperatures of −15 to 10 °C (5 to 50 °F) at an altitude of 50 km (30 miles). Erickson DJ 3rd, Sulzberger B, Zepp RG, Austin AT. Large solar installations affect global and regional climate by taking solar radiation and distributing it in a different manner than natural processes. Over the same period, global temperature has risen markedly. Around 30 percent of the solar energy that strikes Earth is reflected back into space. Geophys Res Lett 34:L04702. For example, increases in oxygen-deficient regions of the ocean caused by climate change are projected to enhance the emissions of nitrous oxide, an important greenhouse and ozone-depleting gas. The balance of positive and negative effects on terrestrial carbon cycling remains uncertain, but the interactions between UV radiation and climate change are likely to contribute to decreasing sink strength in many oceanic regions.
