K. Rypdal Global temperature response to radiative forcing: Solar cycle versus volcanic eruptions Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres (1984–2012) 117

Version of Record online: 30 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1029/2011JD017283

Key Points

  • Solar cycle signal in global temperature is no more than 0.02 degrees K
  • A 0.2 K periodic signal observed in phase with solar cycle is due to volcanoes
  • Volcano cooling in 20th century more than offsets solar activity warming
