Presents an overview of recent research on the original of solar phenomena that affect Earthas technological systems. This topical issue is based on the presentations given at the 26th National Solar Observatory (NSO) Summer Workshop held at the National Solar Observatory/Sacramento Peak, New Mexico, USA from 30 April to 4 May 2012. This unique forum brought together experts in different areas of solar and space physics to help in developing a full picture of the origin of solar phenomena that affect Earthas technological systems. The articles include theory, model and observation research on the origin of the solar activity and its cycle, as well as a discussion on how to incorporate the research into space-weather forecasting tools. This volume is aimed at graduate students and researchers active in solar physics and space science. Previously published in Solar Physics, Vol. 289/2, 2014.(2011) to construct a combined data set of maximum sunspot field strengths extending from 1920 to early 2012. ... Introduction Recently, several studies have concentrated on the long-term variations of field strengths in sunspots. The question at the core of these investigations was whether the strength of sunspot magnetic fields has gradually declined over the last two cycles. ... (2011) employed the manual measurements of magnetic field strengths taken in the FeI 630.15a630.25 nmanbsp;...
