Climate changes have various causes. Everyone is talking about the influence of greenhouse gases. But what role do other factors, such as the cyclical change in the Sun's magnetic activity and the resulting solar radiation reaching the Earth's surface, the oceans and the atmosphere, play in the phenomenon of changing climate?

This year's Leibniz-Kolleg therefore deals with the question: What role does the sun play in climate change? Prof. Dr. Sami K. Solanki from the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen and Prof. Dr. Katja Matthes from the Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research in Kiel will give the keynote lectures on this topic on Thursday, 28 May 2020. Prof. Strassmeier from the AIP and Prof. Oberhänsli from the University of Potsdam will approach the topic from an astro- and geophysical point of view.

A short scientific mini-symposium at the AIP will look at the purely scientific aspects of solar and heliospheric physics and will complement the two actual main lectures.
