Summer School: Geoengineering the Climate. Impacts and the Developing World

17.-21. July 2017, Beijing / China

"This the school will equip developing world researchers with the state-of-the-art simulation results on geoengineering, and the knowledge of how to use these results in their own studies. [...] Apply before March 30 by sending a 300 word explanation of your motivation for attending, and current CV. Also indicate if travel support is needed. For further information and applications please contact Prof. Moore's office, linzhu16@126.com."

Conference: Radiation Management Climate Engineering: Technology, Modeling, Efficacy, and Risks (Gordon Research Conference)

23.-28. July 2017, Sunday River Newry / USA

"Applications for this meeting must be submitted by June 25, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. [...] Climate engineering, also called geoengineering, is the idea of deliberately intervening in Earth's global radiation budget with the goal of reducing some of the risks of accumulating greenhouse gases. The two most frequently discussed possibilities are injecting aerosols into the stratosphere or adding aerosols to low marine clouds, both of which would reflect more sunlight to space; other possibilities include artificially thinning cirrus cloud cover to increasing outgoing longwave radiation. This conference will focus on the scientific questions associated with this set of technologies with the goal of fostering a better understanding of their efficacy and risks."

Conference: Good Hope For Earth Sciences - Session on Geoengineering

27. August - 1. September 2017, Cape Town / South Africa

"This session focuses on RM methods, especially those modifying the properties and coverage of clouds, the impact of stratospheric aerosol injection on clouds and precipitation, and other studies on stratospheric aerosol injection. Presentations on CDR methods will also be considered. CE is a controversial topic, and contributions on the ethics and politics of CE are also encouraged."

Workshop: SRMGI Global Forum

9. October 2017, Berlin / Germany

"During the week of 9 October 2017, SRMGI will hold the SRMGI Global Forum in Berlin, Germany. The Global Forum will bring together participants from past and planned SRMGI outreach meetings around the developing world: Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Ethiopia, Guadeloupe, India, Jamaica, Jordan, Pakistan, the Philippines, Senegal, South Africa and Thailand. The participants will be encouraged to discuss the socio-political, ethical, and scientific dimensions of SRM with their colleagues from the Global South, as they work together to consider what the next steps for SRM research governance should be.

The Global Forum is being held in conjunction with the Climate Engineering Conference 2017. This is the follow-up to CEC14, the largest conference on climate engineering to date. It will draw the world’s leading climate engineering researchers to Berlin, plus interested stakeholders from many disciplines and sectors. The participants of the SRMGI Global Forum will attend CEC17, allowing them to connect with the SRM research community in order to establish and strengthen North-South connections, dialogue, and mutual learning."

Workshop: Evaluating the climate impacts of solar geoengineering (impact world)

13. October 2017, Potsdam / Germany

Workshop on Impacts World 2017. "Solar geoengineering – proposals to cool the planet by increasing the planetary reflectivity – could be a feasible means of temporarily reducing the negative effects of climate change. Despite receiving increasing academic, policy, and public attention in recent years, there has been little attention paid to climate impacts of solar geoengineering on natural and human systems such as agriculture, health, water resources, and ecosystems."
