INTRODUCTION The Symposium/Workshop on Solar-Terrestrial Influences on Weather and Climate was held at The Ohio State University on 24-28 July 1978. Its purpose was to provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of recent research results and ideas regarding the question whether variations in solar outputs affect terrestrial weather and cli mate and, if so, to what extent and through what mechanisms. The Sym posium focused on the results of previous studies and consisted of both invited and contributed papers. The Workshop, on the other hand, built upon these deliberations to develop ideas and directions for future research. Over one hundred persons from eight countries attended the Symposium/ Workshop.be grouped either into those which affect the global radiation balance or those which affect dynamical properties. ... be posed, several plausible links in the chain of physical processes between the sun and tropospheric weather and climate will be illustrated, ... Some examples are: (1) Does high-latitude particle precipitation affect the thermal structure and circulation of the stratosphere and troposphere?
