Planets and their atmospheres (including the Earth and its atmosphere) continuously receive solar energy which comprises very small variable components and a relatively huge constant component. On the basis of certain conditions, specific physical mechanisms can exist in each planet-atmosphere system under which the tiny variable solar energy components so received apparently undergo large amplifications. In the case of the Earth-Atmosphere system, these energy amplifications continuously exist and involve maximum amplification factors that range from ∼ 2312 to over 6915 for frequencies equal to or less than the 11-year sunspot cycle frequency. Consequently energy and hence temperature variations at the solar (or sunspot) cycle frequencies dominantly exist in the Earth-Atmosphere system. These energy and temperature variations are continuously mapped or translated into corresponding variations in the other weather parameters as verified by pastrecords.
