Several studies have been made using geomagnetic activity as one of the parameters principally to determine its possible effects on meteorological parameters such as atmospheric circulation, pressure changes and atmospheric electricity, seismic activity. These studies led one to believe that geomagnetic activity affects the troposphere phenomena4 . In this paper a study has been undertaken to examine the relation between the geomagnetic storm activity, cyclonic storm activity, Sunspot numbers and climate Change.
