Murphy, D. M. (2013): Little net clear-sky radiative forcing from recent regional redistribution of aerosols

Murphy, D. M. (2013): Little net clear-sky radiative forcing from recent regional redistribution of aerosols. In: Nature Geosci 6 (4), pp. 258–262. DOI doi:10.1038/ngeo1740

Connected to SRM. "Here, I use multi-angle imaging spectroradiometer (MISR) satellite data and the Atmospheric and Environmental Research radiative transfer model to assess the radiative effect of the spatial redistribution of aerosols over the past decade."

Scientific American: Root Fungus Stores a Surprising Amount of the Carbon Sequestered in Soil

Connected to CDR. "A new study in Sweden, however, indicates that 50 to 70 percent of the carbon bound in soil is actually from tree roots and the fungi that grow on them."

Emmerling, Johannes; Tavoni, Massimo (2013): Geoengineering and abatement: a 'flat' relationship under uncertainty

Emmerling, Johannes; Tavoni, Massimo (2013): Geoengineering and abatement: a 'flat' relationship under uncertainty. Milano.

A paper from the Italian nonprofit research institute Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM). "This paper evaluates the role of Solar Radiation Management (SRM) on the optimal abatement path, focusing on the uncertainty about the effectiveness of SRM and the interaction with uncertain climate change response."

Vichi, M.; et al. (2013): Adjustment of the natural ocean carbon cycle to negative emission rates

Vichi, M.; Navarra, A.; Fogli, P. G. (2013): Adjustment of the natural ocean carbon cycle to negative emission rates. In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0677-0

On CDR and negative emissions. "Results show that both actions are anticipated to release the anthropogenic carbon stored in the surface ocean, effectively increasing the required removal effort."

Vuuren, Detlef P.; et al. (2013): The role of negative CO2 emissions for reaching 2 °C—insights from integrated assessment modelling. In: Climatic Change.

Vuuren, Detlef P.; Deetman, Sebastiaan; Vliet, Jasper; Berg, Maarten; Ruijven, Bas J.; Koelbl, Barbara (2013): The role of negative CO2 emissions for reaching 2 °C—insights from integrated assessment modelling. In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0680-5

"Given the importance and the uncertainty concerning BECCS [bio-energy with carbon capture and storage], we stress the importance of near-term assessments of its availability as today’s decisions has important consequences for climate change mitigation in the long run."
