Schaller, N.; et al. (2014): The asymmetry of the climate system's response to solar forcing changes and its implications for geoengineering scenarios

Schaller, N.; Sedláček, J.; Knutti, R. (2014): The asymmetry of the climate system's response to solar forcing changes and its implications for geoengineering scenarios. In J. Geophys. Res. Atmos., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2013JD021258.

"Motivated by proposals to compensate CO2-induced warming with a decrease in solar radiation, this study investigates how single forcing simulations should be combined to best represent the spatial patterns of surface temperature and precipitation of idealised geoengineering scenarios."

"The past few months represent an important step forward for our understanding of climate change, with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) publishing two eagerly-awaited contributions to its Fifth Assessment Report. With the third and final thematic report launched yesterday, one distinction between this set of reports and their 2007 predecessors is clear: the conspicuousness of geoengineering."
