Abstract

The results of studying the spatial–temporal variability of the solar climate of the Earth in the present epoch are given with account for periodic perturbations of its orbital motion and the inclination of its axis of rotation due to precession and nutation. Based on the calculations carried out, specific features of temporal variability of the solar radiation coming to the Earth (in the absence of atmosphere) and peculiarities of its spatial distribution over the surface of the Earth’s ellipsoid are determined.
