Impact of Solar Activity on Hydrological Cycle of the Himalayan and Indian Peninsula Rivers

Abstract: In recent times, several studies around the globe show that some rivers are losing water, in some cases because of the effects of climate change. At the same time some rivers are increasing water. This mass transfer of water corresponds to the hydrological cycle. We observe, due to climate change a redistribution of water on the earth surface. Over the period 1850 to 1996 was observed steady increase of sunspots on the Sun. The same period was called as the global warming period. The purpose of this study is to identify contribution of the Sun on trend of river runoffs.

Key words: river runoff, solar activity, sunspot number, hydrological cycle, air temperature
