Project Title:

The Effects of Solar Variability on Earth's Climate: A Workshop
PIN: DEPS-SSB-10-04        

Major Unit:

Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences

Sub Unit: Space Studies Board DEPS

RSO: Sheffer, Abigail

Subject/Focus Area: Earth Sciences; Space and Aeronautics

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee will plan and conduct a public workshop that will examine the state of knowledge regarding the climate response to solar variability and will explore some of the outstanding scientific issues that might guide future research thrusts.
The committee will hold a data-gathering meeting in the process of developing the agenda for the workshop and defining the specific topics for invited presentations and discussions. The committee will subsequently select and invite speakers and other participants and moderate the discussions at the event. The committee will prepare a workshop report that will summarize what transpired at the event but will not contain any findings or recommendations.

This project is sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Science Foundation

The approximate starting date for the project is 06/08/2010. The project duration, which was originally 12 months, has been extended.

A Final Report will be issued in early 2012.

Project Duration: 24 months
