The major conclusions and implications drawn from this study are as follows:
1️⃣ "The global total #wildfire burned A is projected to rise under the unmitigated scenario (SSP5-8.5) & drop under the 2 #geoengineering scenarios (#SolarIrradianceReduction & #StratosphericSulfateAerosols) based on a comparison of the averages of 2091–2100 as to 2021–2030."

"Climate scenario simulations reveal that a doubling of atmospheric CO2 induces a surface temperature rise which is amplified over the poles primarily during the respective winter. The warming also causes intensification & poleward shift of the global precipitation pattern."

"In the model, a 2.1% globally uniform #SolarReduction can largely compensate the global mean warming caused by a doubling of CO2."

"Using a climate model, researchers quantify the sensitivity of the tropical monsoon precipitation to the meridional distribution of volcanic #SulfateAerosols prescribed in the #stratosphere in terms of the changes in aerosol optical depth (AOD)."

"In the experiments, large changes in summer monsoon 🌧️ in the tropical monsoon areas are simulated, mainly over the Indian region, in alliance with meridional shifts in the location of the intertropical convergence zone caused by changes in interhemispheric AOD differences."
