Paper Abstract

A possible mechanism of the influence of solar and geomagnetic activity and of other cosmophysical factors on processes in the lower atmosphere, weather and climate is considered. The main feature of the proposed mechanism is the change of the atmosphere transparency under the influence of galactic and solar cosmic rays. This change of atmosphere transparency is connected with the change of the atmospheric species content, with the development of cycles of nitrogen and hydrogen physical-chemical reactions, including changes in the structure of the clouds. The main cause of the variations in intensity of cosmic rays is the variability of solar activity and of solar wind structure.
