The following diagrams are showing the changes in the reconstructed total solar irradiance since 1610 (SORCE/TIM TSI Reconstruction) and the observations by satellite since the beginning of 2003.
The total solar radiation persisted in recent decades at a very high level, while the sunspot numbers declined significantly during the same period.
Note: The following diagram shows two data sets: The data from the SORCE satellite, which was switched off after 17 years on February 25, 2020, and the more recent measurements from the TSIS satellite, which started in January 2018. The SORCE data affected by the aging of the satellite has been corrected upwards by 0.5 watts.
