Impact of solar activity on precipitation in the United States

For many years scientists have tried to understand the complicated mechanisms governing Earth’s climate. It is known to have always been changing under influence of multiple endogenous processes (e.g. volcanic activity) and exogenous factors (e.g. human influence). Astrophysicists hypothesise that some of the patterns noticed in climatological data can be […]
