  Solar Activity and Climate
Solar ultra-violet, visible and heat radiation are the primary factors for the Earth's climate, including global average temperatures, and these energy sources appear to be quite constant.
Whereas the solar influence is obvious in the data from the last four centuries, signatures of human activity are not yet distinguishable in the observations.
A distinct 10-12 year period in height and temperature of certain isobar sheets was shown to be phaselocked to the solar activity cycle during the last three cycles.

 § 41. solar year / sidereal year / apogee / perigee. 4. Science Terms. The American Heritage Book of English ...
A solar year and a sidereal year both refer to the amount of time it takes Earth to revolve about the Sun.
Since the constellations do not affect seasons on Earth to the extent that the Sun does, the difference between the solar year and the sidereal year is not of immediate importance.
However, one direct result of the difference between a solar year and a sidereal year is the shifting of the North Star.

 The Great Solar Year   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
During the course of the year, the Sun appears to move slowly along the ecliptic to the left.
Due to the Earth's nutation, the point at which the Sun passes the intersection of the ecliptic and the celestial equator is seen each year in a slightly different position against the background of stars.
In astrology, the thirty degrees of the ecliptic, known as the sign Aries, are always counted from the vernal equinox, even though year by year the slow retrograde motion of the equinoctial point along the ecliptic amounts to about fifty seconds of a degree, or a degree every seventy-two years.

 Solar and Lunar Calendars: 360-days in a year
God has merged the three major calendar systems into one complex clock, with the 360-prophetic year as the average year of the lunar and the solar.
Nevertheless, the solar has the driving lead, since all other calendars in one way or another find their bearing and orientation by it.
Thus, the three adjusted calendars work together to mark exact days within a particular year, with their unadjusted counterparts also at work, but as it were, in the background behind the scenes.

 Wikinfo | Solar time
Solar time is based on the idea that, when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky, it is noon.
Apparent solar time is based on the apparent solar day, which is the interval between two successive returns of the sun to the local meridian.
Mean solar time is based on a fictional mean sun which travels at a constant rate throughout the year.

 Solar Hot Water Questions and Answers
Solar collectors are typically designed to last as long as your home with little or no maintenance.
Passive solar systems act as a pre-heater to heat water before it is drawn into the cold inlet of the standard gas or electric water heater.
Operating one solar water heater instead of an electric water heater saves the equivalent of nine barrels of oil every year and reduces carbon dioxide emissions (a greenhouse gas) by 1600 pounds and sulfur dioxide (contributes to acid rain) emissions by 12 pounds.

 Leap Year 101
A solar year is the time it takes the Earth to complete its orbit around the Sun—about one year.
So every four years a leap day is added to the calendar to allow it to catch up to the solar year.
So in addition to the rule that a leap year occurs every four years, a new rule was added: a century year is not a leap year unless it is evenly divisible by 400.

Horacio Valsecia's analysis of the solar return chart is very thorough, analyzing both the solar return chart and its relationship to the natal chart to determine trends for the coming year.
The Solar Return is a chart calculated for the time that the Sun arrives at the exact position of the Sun in your natal chart.
Your life enters a period of general expansion and growth that is portrayed particularly in the house that is occupied by the Sun this year (described in the previous paragraph) and in that occupied by Jupiter (described later on).

 Solar calendar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A solar calendar is a calendar whose dates indicate the position of the earth on its revolution around the sun (or equivalently the apparent position of the sun moving on the celestial sphere).
The mean calendar year of such a calendar approximates some form of the tropical year (typically either the mean tropical year or the vernal equinox year).
Calendars that are not solar calendars, include the Islamic calendar which is a pure lunar calendar and calendars synchronized to the synodic period of Venus or to the heliacal risings of stars.

 The Resurgent Sun
Says David Hathaway, a solar physicist at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center: "The current solar cycle appears to be double-peaked," and the second peak has arrived.
Solar Max eleven years ago was much the same.
Last year, scientists using a technique called helioseismology, which can probe conditions within the Sun much like seismic waves reveal the interior structure of our planet, announced that currents of gas at the base of the convective zone speed and slacken every 16 months.

 SPACE.com -- Space Weather and solar weather FAQ
The solar wind is deflected by the earth's magnetic field, but it changes that field, compressing it on the sunward side and extending it away from the sun.
After a great solar flare in 1959, telegraph operators discovered that currents from the intense aurora borealis was flowing through their systems, causing their telegraph keys to melt and stick in position.
Solar flares are also associated with the radiation storms and can sometimes be followed by a geomagnetic storm a day or so later.

In that case, dates steadily slip relative to calendars like ours, where the year is kept close to the solar year (at least on the average).
Dates are no longer associated with a given season of the year: a holiday that is in the summer one year, may be in the winter some years later.
As in the Julian calendar, years divisible by 4 are leap years.

 Tropical year - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A tropical year (also known as a solar year) is the length of time that the Sun, as viewed from the Earth, takes to return to the same position along the ecliptic (its path among the stars on the celestial sphere) relative to the equinoxes and solstices.
Because the vernal equinox moves back along the ecliptic due to precession, a tropical year is shorter than a sidereal year (in 2000, the difference was 20.409 minutes; it was 20.400 min in 1900).
One must use the mean solar day because the length of each solar day varies regularly during the year, as the equation of time shows.

 Solar Pool Heating Frequently Asked Questions
Solar has the advantage of allowing you to start with a smaller system and being able to add more panels later.
Solar systems' warranties are typically more inclusive and much longer (12 years plus) than warranties for gas heaters (5 years) and heat pumps (typically 10 years).
Solar heating and covering a pool is like putting a lid on a pot of water that is heating on a stove - the same heat makes the water hotter and holds the heat longer.

 Lunar Flood, Solar Year - Chassidic Masters - Parsha   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
In other words, in their proper proportion and context as a regulated means to a higher end, the waters of materiality are a beneficial, life-nurturing rain; but when allowed to overstep their bounds, they become a destructive deluge.
Twelve such months are regarded as a year, but these "years" bear no relation to the solar cycle (a given date in such a calendar will, in certain years, fall in the midst of summer and, in other years, in the dead of winter).
The Flood can be reconciled with the solar calendar and made part of a "complete year" in which lunar and solar time converge and the moon receives and conveys the light of the sun.
