Ben Kravitz


Ben is interested in how the climate responds to radiative forcing across a wide variety of spatial and temporal scales. His primary method of investigating climate forcing and feedbacks is through simulations of geoengineering, or deliberate interventions into the climate system to counteract some of the effects of human-induced climate change. He is the coordinator of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP), a worldwide effort to understand common climate model responses to various geoengineering scenarios.

Greenhouse gas emissions urgently need to be reduced. Even with a step up in mitigation, the goal of limiting global temperature rise to well below 2 °C remains challenging. Consequences of missing these goals are substantial, especially on regional scales. Because progress in the reduction...
