  • This paper presents a modeling study where an Earth System Model (CESM-CAM4) was used to examine the response of terrestrial photosynthesis in the context of climate intervention by geoengineering. The author conducted 2 experiments. In a first experiment (G4SSA), stratospheric sulfate aerosols are injected to counteract global warming from anthropogenic activities assuming a RCP6.0 baseline scenario. An increase of up to +3.8 PgC/year in plant gross primary productivity during the geo… CONTINUE READING
