Participant Application: Ecological Impacts of Solar Radiation Management (SRM) Geoengineering Workshops
We invite postdocs and graduate students to apply for spots in NSF-funded workshops titled, "Workshops on the ecological impacts of solar radiation management geoengineering." The workshops bring together climate scientists and ecologists to address how solar radiation management (SRM) geoengineering could affect ecology, including species distributions, biodiversity, and ecosystem functions and services.

Anticipated outcomes of the workshops include: developing a research agenda on ecological impacts of SRM; peer-reviewed publications presenting analyses of ecological responses to SRM scenarios; and identifying research synergies among the fields through special interdisciplinary sessions at conferences.
