Cosmoclimatology: How stars can affect climate

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperCommunication


The Earth is situated in the Milky Way amongst a multitude of stars, with the Sun as our closest neighbour. Only 10 years ago a strong correlation was found between the cloud cover on Earth and the amount of galactic cosmic radiation - highly energetic particles generated by supernovae. This implied a forcing of our climate from sources outside of Earth's atmosphere on timescales from days to millions of years. In this talk the research surrounding the discovery will be presented, from paleoclimatic evidence to experimental results
