Workshop on the Sun as a variable star



The main objectives of International Astronomical Union Colloquium 143, “The Sun as a Variable Star: Solar and Stellar Irradiance Variations,” were to review recent observations, theoretical interpretations, and empirical and physical models of the variations observed in solar and stellar irradiances and Sun-climate connections. Held in Boulder, Colo., June 20–25, 1993, the colloquium was sponsored by IAU Commission 10, cosponsored by IAU Commissions 12, 27, 29, and 44, and hosted by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration's Space Environment Laboratory. The cosponsoring International Council of Scientific Unions organizations were the Committee on Space Research, the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics, and the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy.
