That joins to feed the solar day.

They lose distinction in the mass,
Where Iris-hues, grown tintless quite,
Stand wondering at their own pure White.

In science:

Theoretically, a decrease in albedo could mimic increased solar flux (e.g. deglaciation from total ice cover whilst solar flux is high (Ishiwatari et al., 2007)).
The Runaway Greenhouse: implications for future climate change, geoengineering and planetary atmospheres
Recently, White et al. (2011) has investigated its accuracy for a grid of models and shown that the error is around 2 to 3.5 % for stars with Teff below 6700 K, relevant to solar-like oscillations, but can reach 10% in the worst cases, when calibrated to solar values.
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
Since then, the solar radius underwent a downward revision (Brown & Christensen-Dalsgaard 1998) following a discrepancy with the radius inferred from solar f-modes (Schou et al. 1997, Antia 1998).
Estimating stellar mean density through seismic inversions
At the cometopause, cometary ions are rapidly picked up by the magnetic field of the Solar wind, and accelerated up to the Solar wind speed of hundreds of km/s.
Possible Disintegrating Short-Period Super-Mercury Orbiting KIC 12557548
By averaging the individual p-mode frequency shifts over all low (ℓ)values, observational findings pointed to seismic signatur es of QBP over the long extended minimum characterizing the end of solar cycle 23 and beginning of solar cycle 24 (Broomhall et al., 2009a; Fletcher et al., 2010).
The Quasi-Biennial Periodicity (QBP) in velocity and intensity helioseismic observations
We decided, therefore, to investigate the properties of the seismic QBP by using several helioseismic instruments in velocity and intensity data covering a period that goes from the end of solar cycle 22 up to the beginning of solar cycle 24.

We also noticed that away from the solar maximum, the QBP shows up in each low degree mode over different periods of solar activity phase.
