Do sun spots affect the weather?



  1. 0 Votes

    There is no direct evidence that sun spot activity has an impact on terrestrial Earth weather. There has been some expanding of the stratosphere observed in response to increased sun spot activity, but this can not be conclusively demonstrated to affect the much larger troposphere, where precipitation occurs. There is some correlation between historical minimums in the sunspot cycle and periods of lower temperature on Earth. The most commonly cited examples are the Sporer, Maunder and Dalton periods of decreased sunspot activity which occurred between 1450 and 1820 a period known as the Little Ice Age on Earth.

    The effect of sunspots on the earth’s climate is still being studied. However, more correlations are showing that, yes, the sun’s activities (sunspots, flares, etc.) do have an effect on the earth.
