Klepper, Gernot; Rickels, Wilfried (2012): The Real Economics of Climate Engineering

Klepper, Gernot; Rickels, Wilfried (2012): The Real Economics of Climate Engineering. In: Economics Research International, pp. 1–20.

New calculation with formerly unknown costs. "Whereas Barrett was mostly focusing on the cost of running CE measures, we point out that several determinants of overall economic cost like price or external effects are not yet sufficiently accounted for and that the question of dynamic efficiency is still unresolved."

Pope, F. D.; et al. (2012): Stratospheric aerosol particles and solar-radiation management

Pope, F. D.; Braesicke, P.; Grainger, R. G.; Kalberer, M.; Watson, I. M.; Davidson, P. J.; Cox, R. A. (2012): Stratospheric aerosol particles and solar-radiation management. In: Nature Climate change.

Sulfur-SRM modelling study. "We show that aerosols with other compositions, such as minerals, could be used to dramatically increase the amount of light scatter achieved on a per mass basis, thereby reducing the particle mass required for injection."
