Laakso, Anton; et al. (2012): Stratospheric passenger flights are likely an inefficient geoengineering strategy

Laakso, Anton; Partanen, Antti-Ilari; Kokkola, Harri; Laaksonen, Ari; Lehtinen, Kari E. J.; Korhonen, Hannele (2012): Stratospheric passenger flights are likely an inefficient geoengineering strategy. In: Environ. Res. Lett 7 (3), S. 34021.

"Here, we show that using stratospheric passenger flights to inject sulfate aerosols would not cause significant forcing under realistic injection scenarios."
