New paper finds solar control of clouds, water vapor, & monsoon rainfall over past 35 years
A paper published today in the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics finds long-term observational evidence corroborating Svensmark's cosmic ray theory of climate. According to the authors, the "Sun influences the formation of clouds and rainfall activity through Galactic Cosmic Ray mediation" and "Solar control on the Indian Summer Monsoon rainfall, cloud liquid water content, and integrated water vapor is observed over India during 1977–2012."
