Forty scientists working in solar physics and related fields met in Boulder recently to produce a summary of present scientific knowledge of the energy output of the sun and the possibility that this output may vary with time.

The three-day (April 26–28) Solar Output Workshop, which included a number of Boulder scientists as well as researchers from universities, government agencies, and other organizations across the country, was designed to produce a reference book that will include a tabulation of all available data on the output of the sun as well as discussions of historical inferences and important future issues concerning solar output. In addition to solar physicists the workshop included scientists who are studying related subjects such as planetary atmospheres, stellar evolution, climatic change, and the earth's upper atmosphere.
