Abstract : The Sun’s radiative energy output is the primary external, natural driver of the Earth’s climate. Several complicated non-linear models exist which model the physical processes leading to global climate fluctuations. Some of the more advanced models use observed data to constrain various parameters involved. However, the exact processes that affect the globally averaged temperature variations are not well understood fully physically. We develop a physically motivated reduced climate model utilizing a novel mathematical formulation involving non-linear delay differential equations to study temperature fluctuations when subjected to an imposed solar radiative forcing. This study may provide pathways for understanding the response of the global climate to a combination of relevant, external and internal factors.
