SEC-WARP: Whole Atmosphere consequences of Radiation-belt Processes
Entry ID: GB-NERC-BAS-AEDC-00525

Abstract: SEC will describe and quantify the key mechanisms by which variations in the solar wind and solar high-energy radiation affect the Earth's atmosphere, to determine whether or not these have a significant effect on the Earth's climate system. It will look at the atmosphere and geospace as a unified whole, opening the way to the development of more realistic numerical models of the climate system. ... View entire text

Purpose: Objectives
* Quantify the key mechanisms of indirect links between the Sun and the Earth's atmosphere
o via solar and radiation belt particles
o via the geo-electric field
o via atmospheric waves
* Determine how the effect of solar variability may be amplified through those links and the significance for climate
* Determine the evolution of atmospheric change over time due to indirect influences, on different time scales and at different epochs
