Abstract
The response of the global climate system to smoke from burning oil wells in Kuwait is investigated in a series of numerical experiments using a coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model with an interactive soot transport model and extended radiation scheme. The results show a decrease in surface air temperature of approximately 4-degrees-C in the Gulf region. Outside this region the changes are small and statistically insignificant. No weakening of the Indian summer monsoon is observed.
