It is not possible to study the atmospheric changes in isolation. It has been inferred that there are indirect links existing in between the changes within the Sun with the thermosphere, ionosphere, atmosphere, and geosphere. The Earth’s magnetic field acts like a shield, protecting earth from the constant stream of tiny particles ejected by the Sun which is known as the ‘solar wind’.
