Erik Sterner is since 2011 working with climate change using simple climate models. In more detail he focuses on the effects of short lived climate forcers, like Black Carbon, on the climate system and compares them to the effects of carbon dioxide. The aim of his research is to contribute to the understanding of the climate change abatement strategies that the short lived climate forcers offer.
