This website highlights collaborative and interdisciplinary research from members of a National Science Foundation funded Workshop on ecological impacts of solar radiation modification (SRM) geoengineering.
Projected surface temperature change in 2081-2100 in a scenario without mitigation compared with one where emissions are reduced (left) and in a scenario without mitigation, but with stratospheric aerosol injections (SAI) (right). Although SAI may cool the planet down to a certain global temperature target, the local cooling may be uneven, and there are potentially large impacts on ecosystems (right).
