Conley, Daniel J. (2012): Ecology: Save the Baltic Sea

Conley, Daniel J. (2012): Ecology: Save the Baltic Sea. In: Nature 486 (7404), pp. 463–464.

Not close climate engineering, but connected. "Several large-scale geoengineering interventions have been proposed as solutions to this problem [of the Baltic Sea]. [...] But they could also be dangerous."

environmental research web: From forestry to geoengineering, silicate weathering counts

Media response to this paper on enhanced weathering.

"Now research shows how important it is to obtain good estimates of local rock-weathering rates if we are to avoid upsetting these finely balanced natural cycles."

Futter, M. N.; Klaminder, J.; et al. (2012): Uncertainty in silicate mineral weathering rate estimates

Futter, M. N.; Klaminder, J.; Lucas, R. W.; Laudon, H.; Köhler, S. J. (2012): Uncertainty in silicate mineral weathering rate estimates: source partitioning and policy implications. In: Environ. Res. Lett. 7 (2), pp. 24025. doi 10.1088/1748-9326/7/2/024025

"We show that within-site differences of several hundred per cent arise when different methods are used to estimate weathering rates, mainly as a result of uncertainties related to input data rather than conceptually different views of the weathering process."
