Climate impacts of COVID‐19 induced emission changes

Abstract:

The COVID‐19 pandemic led to dramatic changes in economic activity in 2020. We use estimates of emissions changes for 2020 in two Earth System Models (ESMs) to simulate the impacts of the COVID‐19 economic changes. Ensembles of nudged simulations are used to separate small signals from meteorological variability. Reductions in aerosol and precursor emissions, chiefly Black Carbon (BC) and sulfate (SO4), led to reductions in total anthropogenic aerosol cooling through aerosol‐cloud interaction...
