The DECIMALS teams started publishing their first papers in early 2020, and they have already been responsible for the first SRM research papers from Africa, the Middle East, Small Island Developing States, and Least Developed Countries. Their projects are typically looking at the regional impacts of SRM, and it is expected that 60+ developing countries will have more evidence of the effects of SRM once all studies are complete. This page features all DECIMALS papers published to date, and will be updated regularly as more papers come out.
