Fyfe, J.C; et al. (2013): Biogeochemical carbon coupling inuences global precipitation in geoengineering experiments

Fyfe, J.C; Cole, J.N.S; Arora, V.K; Scinocca, J.F (2013): Biogeochemical carbon coupling inuences global precipitation in geoengineering experiments. In: Geophys. Res. Lett.. (accepted article) DOI 10.1002/grl.50166

"While this precipitation response has been explained on the basis of changes in net radiation controlling evaporative processes at the surface, there has been relatively little consideration of the relative role of biogeochemical carbon-cycle interactions."

Zeng, Ning; et al. (2012): Carbon sequestration via wood harvest and storage: An assessment of its harvest potential

Zeng, Ning; King, Anthony W.; Zaitchik, Ben; Wullschleger, Stan D.; Gregg, Jay; Wang, Shaoqiang; Kirk-Davidoff, Dan (2012): Carbon sequestration via wood harvest and storage: An assessment of its harvest potential. In: Climatic Change. (published online) DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0624-0

"A carbon sequestration strategy has recently been proposed in which a forest is actively managed, and a fraction of the wood is selectively harvested and stored to prevent decomposition. The forest serves as a ‘carbon scrubber’ or ‘carbon remover’ that provides continuous sequestration (negative emissions)."

Manning, David A. C.; Renforth, Phil (2013): Passive Sequestration of Atmospheric CO 2 through Coupled Plant-Mineral Reactions in Urban soils

Manning, David A. C.; Renforth, Phil (2013): Passive Sequestration of Atmospheric CO 2 through Coupled Plant-Mineral Reactions in Urban soils. In: Environ. Sci. Technol. 47 (1), pp. 135–141.

"It offers a sustainable carbon dioxide removal mechanism analogous to the use of constructed wetlands for the passive remediation of contaminated waters, and is likely to achieve wide public acceptance."

Scott, Karen N. (2013): International Law in the Anthropocene. Responding to the Geoengineering Challenge. (forthcoming)

Scott, Karen N. (2013): International Law in the Anthropocene. Responding to the Geoengineering Challenge. (forthcoming). In: Michigan Journal of International Law, pp. 1–38.

"However, this article will argue that international environmental law not only refers to an area of international regulation, but also comprises a distinct set of norms and principles applicable to states in a situation where the global environment is at risk of serious or irreversible harm."
