Haywood, Jim M.; et al. (2013): Asymmetric forcing from stratospheric aerosols impacts Sahelian rainfall

Haywood, Jim M.; Jones, Andy; Bellouin, Nicolas; Stephenson, David (2013): Asymmetric forcing from stratospheric aerosols impacts Sahelian rainfall. In: Nature Climate change. DOI 10.1038/nclimate1857

Aerosol modeling study that is connected to SRM. "We suggest that sporadic volcanic eruptions in the Northern Hemisphere also strongly influence this gradient and cause Sahelian drought. Using de-trended observations from 1900 to 2010, we show that three of the four driest Sahelian summers were preceded by substantial Northern Hemisphere volcanic eruptions."
