Abstract:

Sulfate geoengineering has been discussed frequently as anthropogenic global warming is continuing, and currently we lack an adequate mitigation strategy to keep global average temperature from rising to 2°C above the pre-industrial level. With sulfate geoengineering, climate factors important for agriculture will change, including temperature, precipitation, total solar radiation, diffuse radiation, ultraviolet radiation, and surface ozone. Currently, there are only five regional agriculture impacts studies using process-based crop models under different geoengineering scenarios. Those results are varied and difficult to compare with each other. More studies are needed in this area.
