Muri, Helene; et al. (2015): Tropical rainforest response to marine sky brightening climate engineering

Muri, Helene; Niemeier, Ulrike; Kristjánsson, Jón Egill (2015): Tropical rainforest response to marine sky brightening climate engineering. In: Geophys. Res. Lett., S. n/a. DOI: 10.1002/2015GL063363.

"Here, the gross primary productivity (GPP) response of tropical rainforests to climate engineering via marine sky brightening under a future scenario is investigated in three Earth system models. The model response is diverse, and in two of the three models, the tropical GPP shows a decrease from the marine sky brightening climate engineering."
