Exploring the impact of stratospheric sulfur injection

Model experiments investigate the effect upon total ozone column

Stratospheric aerosol intervention (SAI) has been proposed to counter greenhouse gas induced warming. Different sulfur injection strategies have been studied to limit some of the known side effects of SAI on the surface climate. Here we explore the effects of these sulfur injection strategies on total column ozone (TCO) including effects on the recovery of the Antarctic ozone hole.
