Dr Khalil Karami is the lead author of the first SRM modelling study to come from the MENA region. Photo: Khalil Karami In June, the Iran DECIMALS team led by Dr Khalil Karami published its first SRM research paper. We talked with Khalil about the study and his path to leading the region’s first SRM […]
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 […]
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 […]
Dr Izidine Pinto is the lead author of the first SRM modelling study from Africa. Photo: Izidine Pinto In January, global SRM research reached an important milestone: the publication of the world’s first African research paper on solar geoengineering. The paper’s lead author was Mozambican climatologist Dr Izidine Pinto, working with colleagues at the University of […]
January saw a landmark for the global evaluation of SRM and also a landmark for SRMGI (The Degrees Initiative). A research team based at the University of Cape Town published the first African research paper on SRM, and first to come from our DECIMALS Fund. Entitled “Africa’s Climate Response to Solar Radiation Management with Stratospheric Aerosol”, […]
Earlier this month, SRMGI supported the South Africa DECIMALS team to present their work to the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco.
