This seminar describes the recommended solar forcing dataset for CMIP6 and highlights changes with respect to CMIP5 and is a review of the paper by K. Matthes et al. (2017).

The solar forcing is provided for radiative properties, namely total solar irradiance (TSI), solar spectral irradiance (SSI), and the F10.7 index as well as particle forcing, including geomagnetic indices Ap and Kp, and ionisation rates to account for effects of solar protons, electrons and galactic cosmic rays.

This is the first time that solar-particle forcing is recommended in a CMIP exercise and the datasets are provided at daily and monthly resolution separately for the CMIP6 preindustrial control, historical (1850-2014) and future (2015-2300) simulations.
