Jokipii -- Solar spectral irradiance: measurements and models / Judith L. Lean and Thomas N. Woods -- Astrophysical influences on planetary climate systems / J�urg Beer -- Assessing the sun-climate relationship in paleoclimate records / Thomas J.

Summary: "Heliophysics is a fast-developing scientific discipline that integrates studies of the Sun's variability, the surrounding heliosphere, and the environment and climate of planets. Over the past few centuries, our understanding of how the Sun drives space weather and climate on the Earth and other planets has advanced at an ever increasing rate. The Sun is a magnetically variable star and, for planets with intrinsic magnetic fields, planets with atmospheres, or planets like Earth with both, thereare profound consequences"-- Provided by publisher.
