The radiation budget plays a key role in climate changes. This project systematically assesses the soil moisture response to the radiative forcing of atmospheric composition changes and the influence of water management using CMIP6 models. With focus on the response of the soil moisture in Europe, the project separates contributions from water management, greenhouse gases, anthropogenic dust-aerosols, as well as aerosols from biomass burning and industrial pollution. It contributes to understand the possible future development of anthropogenic dust-aerosols in a warmer world.
