Colorado has had several major droughts in the past 130 years. Thanks to one of the droughts, 1983 was recorded as the driest year in some of the major cities. Scientists ask themselves what causes droughts. Many believe sunspots have an effect on the climate, but it is a subject that has not been studied enough to come to a conclusion. This IQP tries to find a correlation between droughts and sunspots.
