 4th- IAGA Symposium

"Influence of short and long term solar variability on climate”


Hurghada, Egypt

 20 - 24 March, 2016

The aim of the forth Symposium is to maintain the momentum thus generated by bringing together communities interested in Solar-Terrestrial relations and Space Weather, both from solar and atmospheric thematic, and including observing and modelling. Our newly proposed forth Symposium is entitled “Influence of short and long term solar variability on climate”, and opens to major new research in cross fertilization between the Sun and its influence on climate. Since the last deep minimum of Solar Cycle 24 which provided the quietest Sun seen in almost a century and questioned our understanding of the Sun variability, particularly in the ultraviolet part of the spectrum, a dedicated study of the impacts of the diverse aspects of the solar influence on climate, from minimum to the unusual double peak maximum of Solar Cycle 25 will provide the main thrust of this Symposium.


Proceeding of IAGA - III Linke :



The suggested Preliminary Scientific Program will be divided into 6 sessions, as follows:

  • solar and Space missions for Space Weather and solar variability observations.
  • Solar activity/variability effects on the lower, middle and upper atmosphere
  • The Impact of Modeling climate consequences of solar activity influence and   suggested   mechanisms.
  • Modeling and predicting large flares, super flares, CMEs and other extreme events.
  • Solar energetic particles and Solar wind influence on the Earth's inner magnetosphere and  atmosphere.
  • Societal impact of solar variability, Education and Public Outreach

      Final conclusion and Recommendation
