The proposed monograph on "Remote sensing of Sun-Earth Climate" is a new concept being established by the author after a passionate research in this field for more than two decades.

Main objective of the monograph is to initiate the use of extra terrestrial remote sensing applications to understand the Environment of the Earth and other planets of the solar system. Environmental changes of the Earth and Atmosphere are being studied based on the interaction of different anthropogenic activities and its effects. The influence of Sun and other celestial objects on the Earth and other planets has been observed by using the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) satellite which is placed in between Sun and Earth. Unlike other satellites, SOHO does not rotate around Earth but it rotates around the Sun and it is 1.5 million kilometers away from the Earth. From Sun, the Sunspot erupts through the corona of the Sunspots as well as intermittent solar flare. These variables are measured as Electron flux (E-flux), Proton flux (P-flux), X-ray flux and Planetary indices (Kp). These variables show erratic behavior which is showing pro- and anti- correlation with various environmental changes in space and time. The monograph includes not only the information pertaining with the changes on the Earth but it concerns about the changes in other planets and their Moons also. The information inferred from different Environment other than the Earth may be useful for calibrating the Environmental Changes within the Earth and its comparison with the Environment of other planets and satellites in the Solar system. The monograph will emphasize not only on the Earth and Planetary Sciences fields but it will improve the knowledge on the influence of distantly placed celestial objects including Sun and Star.

The proposed monograph is based on the hypothesis of extra terrestrial changes to initiate the climate change on the Earth. During these extra terrestrial changes it has been observed that the earth changes in its atmosphere as well as geosphere, which may have local effect but the increase of these local effects in large scale may contribute to the climate change. Solar radiation drives atmospheric circulation. Since solar radiation represents almost all the energy available to the Earth, accounting for solar radiation and how it interacts with the atmosphere and the Earth's surface is fundamental to understanding the Earth's energy budget. Similar to the Earth it has been found to be relevant with other planets of the Solar system which also show remarkable changes during the varied influences by the Sun and other materials from the outer space.Most of the statistical scientific data were not able to answer satisfactorily the erratic behavior of climate. Earth is a tiny part of the Universe and it is linked with the changes of Sun and other celestial bodies. We are continuously facing the changes in the climate due to changes in the sun and in the intensity of cosmic rays and other collateral changes imposed on the Earth. It has been observed that these changes are taking place before any episodic changes on the Earth. An attempt is made here to simulate the climate change based on the abrupt changes in the atmosphere and geosphere of the earth during solar eclipse.
