1. What is the most recent and/or most compelling evidence of the impact of solar variability on climate, particularly in the lower atmosphere, over decadal timescales?

2. What can we learn of the variability of solar irradiance using paleoclimate records?

3. What can we learn of climate responses to solar variability using paleoclimate records?

4. Are there any significant climate impacts of solar variability on regional scales?

5. What are the research directions, additional observations, and/or model improvements necessary to improve understanding and forecast ability regarding solar variability and climate, particularly over the solar cycle timescale?

On September 8-9, 2011, experts in solar physics, climate models, paleoclimatology, and atmospheric science assembled at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado for a workshop to consider the Sun's variability over time and potential Sun-climate connections.

While it does not provide findings, recommendations, or consensus on the current state of the science, The Effects of Solar Variability on Earth's Climate: A Workshop Report briefly introduces the primary topics discussed by presenters at the event. As context for these topics, the summary includes background information on the potential Sun-climate connection, the measurement record from space, and potential perturbations of climate due to long-term solar variability. This workshop report also summarizes some of the science questions explored by the participants as potential future research endeavors.
