First SRM study from the MENA region

The Iran Degrees Modelling Fund 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 […]

First SRM study from an LDC

Today, the Benin Degrees Modelling Fund 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 […]
