Comparative study of effects of cosmic rays on the earth’s atmospheric processes
Arshad Rasheed Ganai, Dr. Suryansh Choudhary
In this paper, we have provided an overview of cosmic ray effects on terrestrial processes such as electrical properties, global electric circuit, lightning, cloud formation, cloud coverage, atmospheric temperature, space weather phenomena, climate, etc. It is suggested that cosmic rays control short term and long term variation in climate. There are many basic phenomena which need further study and require new and long term data set. Some of these have been pointed out.
