    • Climate and health impacts of US emissions reductions consistent with 2 °C 

      Shindell, Drew; Lee, Yunha; Faluvegi, Greg (Nature Climate Change, 2016-05)
      © 2016 Macmillan Publishers Limited. All rights reserved. An emissions trajectory for the US consistent with 2 °C warming would require marked societal changes, making it crucial to understand the associated benefits. Previous ...
    • Dominant control of agriculture and irrigation on urban heat island in India. 

      Buzan, J; Huber, Matthew; Kumar, Rahul; Kumar, Rohini; Mishra, V; Shindell, Drew Todd (Sci Rep, 2017-10-25)
      As is true in many regions, India experiences surface Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect that is well understood, but the causes of the more recently discovered Urban Cool Island (UCI) effect remain poorly constrained. This ...
    • El Niño and health risks from landscape fire emissions in Southeast Asia. 

      Marlier, ME; DeFries, RS; Voulgarakis, A; Kinney, PL; Randerson, JT; Shindell, Drew Todd; Chen, Y; ... (8 authors) (Nat Clim Chang, 2013)
      Emissions from landscape fires affect both climate and air quality(1). In this study, we combine satellite-derived fire estimates and atmospheric modeling to quantify health effects from fire emissions in Southeast Asia ...
    • Global air quality and health co-benefits of mitigating near-term climate change through methane and black carbon emission controls. 

      Amann, M; Anenberg, SC; Demkine, V; Emberson, L; Faluvegi, G; Hicks, WK; Janssens-Maenhout, G; ... (19 authors) (Environ Health Perspect, 2012-06)
      BACKGROUND: Tropospheric ozone and black carbon (BC), a component of fine particulate matter (PM ≤ 2.5 µm in aerodynamic diameter; PM(2.5)), are associated with premature mortality and they disrupt global and regional climate. ...
    • Modeling the QBO-Improvements resulting from higher-model vertical resolution. 

      Geller, MA; Zhou, T; Shindell, Drew Todd; Ruedy, R; Aleinov, I; Nazarenko, L; Tausnev, NL; ... (12 authors) (J Adv Model Earth Syst, 2016-09)
      Using the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) climate model, it is shown that with proper choice of the gravity wave momentum flux entering the stratosphere and relatively fine vertical layering of at least 500 ...
    • Quantified, Localized Health Benefits of Accelerated Carbon Dioxide Emissions Reductions. 

      Shindell, Drew; Faluvegi, Greg; Seltzer, Karl; Shindell, Cary (Nature climate change, 2018-01)
      Societal risks increase as Earth warms, but also for emissions trajectories accepting relatively high levels of near-term emissions while assuming future negative emissions will compensate even if they lead to identical ...
