Stellar Irradiance Variations

  • R. R. Radick (a1)

Abstract

The variability of several dozen stars similar to the Sun in mass, age, and average activity has been monitored regularly in chromospheric Ca II HK emission for over three decades, and photometrically for over fifteen years. Larger samples have been observed less comprehensively. Analogous solar time series exist. A comparison of solar variability with its stellar analogs indicates that the Sun's current behavior is not unusual among sunlike stars. Both solar models and stellar measurements suggest that a true luminosity variation underlies the cyclic total irradiance changes observed on the Sun.
