Proceedings: US National Academies workshop on SRM research governance

In September 2019, our Project Director Andy Parker was invited to present to the US National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s panel on SRM governance. His comments were published recently in the session proceedings. Reflecting on his experiences working on SRMGI (The Degrees Initiative), Andy argued that building developing country capacity to evaluate SRM should be […]

First SRM study from the MENA region

The Iran DECIMALS team just published their first study in Geophysical Research Letters, exploring how SRM could affect storm tracks in the MENA region. Analysing modelling data from the GLENS project, the study finds that SRM could partially offset the poleward shift of storm tracks induced by global warming, and thus reduce some water stresses in […]

First SRM study from an LDC

Today, the Benin DECIMALS team published their first paper in Earth’s Future, exploring how SRM could affect the West African monsoon. Using modelling data from the GLENS project, the study finds that SRM would reduce climate-caused disruptions to rainfall in the Northern Sahel and Southern Sahel. However, it also finds that SRM would be projected to […]
