Remote sensing of solar influence on antarctic terrestrial climate by GPS observations

Abstract

Water vapour is a key in the hydrological cycle and the main driver of atmospheric events. Precipitable water vapour (PWV), as a climate variable determined from the Global Positioning System (GPS) atmospheric delays errors is one key used to study recent solar-weather/climate relationships. It was proven that the tremendous capability of low-cost GPS technique has the major impact on the improvement of weather forecasts and offer essential tool in detecting global climate change. GPS sensing technique has also been widely used as a powerful tool to accurately measure the ionospheric total electron content (TEC). In this work, solar related events influence on terrestrial climate through PWV measurements is quantified and investigated. TEC variability in the upper atmosphere associated with the geomagnetic activity and solar flares originated from the Sun is used as a solar activity parameter. A new approach is proposed for determining and quantifying the solar influence on PWV by indirectly correlating the PWV and TEC variations in short-term analysis to enlighten solar-climate relationship issues. Besides PWV determination based on GPS sensing technique, this chapter describes the morphology of solar modulated geomagnetic activity during major storms to understand the impact of Sun-Earth interactions and discusses how solar variability during intense heliogeophysical disturbances exerts their influence on PWV.
