Writing ECE Theses and Dissertations Preparation of a thesis plays an important role in the development of a student into a scholar who can conduct independent research. Students gain the necessary basic knowledge by taking courses, and they demonstrate their capability for original thought and competence in research by conducting a research program on a topic selected in consultation with their thesis advisers.
Which is what can be seen in the NASA solar irradiance measurements. These two chart pairs from pages 5 and 7 of the above report show that solar irradiance is not responsible for the sharp increase in observed world temperatures over the last few decades.
In the second pair of graphs, the sunspot cycle has been subtracted out and temperature data has been smoothed. The red line in the irradiance chart shows the resultant best fit while the other lines reflect various damping factors.
As shown in the charts, not only have temperatures continued to rise sincethe rate of temperature increase is accelerating. Total solar irradiance total solar radiated energy has slightly decreased during this period.
The report also examines sunspot counts, length of the sunspot cycle, solar magnetic flux, and cosmic rays as part of the study. A quote from http: The low activity in sunspots from to is of interest. This dip in sunspot activity is called the Maunder Minimum in honor of astronomer E.
This is not what we observe in the temperature records. Thus sunspots are not the cause of the sharp global warming we have seen in the last few decades. The chart above from http: The Maunder Minimum does coincide with the lowest temperature readings, but it is a loose fit at best, and may be coincidental.
Of note, the Medieval Warm Period was not as warm as current temperatures. This refutes the graphic shown in the pseudo-documentary which claims the Medieval Warm Period was warmer than present temperatures.
A major research work that was published in has again reconfirmed the original work by Michael Mann. The graph shown in the pseudo-documentary is not based on accurate data.
This assertion is refuted by the following article published by the American Geophysical Union. The assertion in the pseudo-documentary may well be based on this discredited cosmic ray hypothesis. If you want to look at cosmic ray measurements for the last 50 years, you can see the actual data at ftp: The solar wind is stronger during periods of high sunspot activity which in turn reduces the number of cosmic rays that can reach the earth.
Thus there is an year inverse correlation with the sunspot cycle.ECE Building (Undergraduate Advising Office Document your research and thesis progress on the.
