UCAR Atmos News: Turbocharging science. New supercomputer triples Earth system science capability with greater efficiency

"The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is launching operations this month of one of the world's most powerful and energy-efficient supercomputers, providing the nation with a major new tool to advance understanding of the atmospheric and related Earth system sciences. [...] An NCAR-led project is using Cheyenne's computing power to run an ensemble of climate engineering simulations to show how hypothetical sulfate injections could affect regional temperatures and precipitation."

Whyy Radio: Is geoengineering an answer to climate change?

"Will this research be seen as a quick fix for the climate and allow governments an excuse to do nothing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?  This hour, we’ll explore  geoengineering and some of the thorny questions that surround it. Our guests are DAVID BIELLO, author of The Unnatural World: The Race to Remake Civilization in Earth’s Newest Age, and DAVID KEITH, a professor of applied physics at Harvard University."

Kärcher, Bernd (2017): Cirrus Clouds and Their Response to Anthropogenic Activities

Kärcher, Bernd (2017): Cirrus Clouds and Their Response to Anthropogenic Activities. In: Curr Clim Change Rep. DOI: 10.1007/s40641-017-0060-3.

"This review assesses recent observational and modeling evidence of how anthropogenic activities might affect cirrus. Changes in physical properties and chemical composition of liquid aerosol particles will unlikely affect cirrus significantly, but anthropogenic influences may occur through changes in heterogeneous ice nuclei."
