Jones, Anthony C.; et al. (2017): Impacts of hemispheric solar geoengineering on tropical cyclone frequency

Jones, Anthony C.; Haywood, James M.; Dunstone, Nick; Emanuel, Kerry; Hawcroft, Matthew K.; Hodges, Kevin I.; Jones, Andy (2017): Impacts of hemispheric solar geoengineering on tropical cyclone frequency. In Nat Comms 8 (1), p. 1382. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-017-01606-0.

"Observations following major volcanic eruptions indicate that aerosol enhancements confined to a single hemisphere effectively modulate North Atlantic tropical cyclone (TC) activity in the following years. Here we investigate the effects of both single-hemisphere and global SAI scenarios on North Atlantic TC activity using the HadGEM2-ES general circulation model and various TC identification methods."

Carr, Wylie; Preston, Christopher J. (2017): Skewed Vulnerabilities and Moral Corruption in Global Perspectives on Climate Engineering

Carr, Wylie; Preston, Christopher J. (2017): Skewed Vulnerabilities and Moral Corruption in Global Perspectives on Climate Engineering. In environ values 26 (6), pp. 757–777. DOI: 10.3197/096327117X15046905490371.

"The research presented in this paper was designed to build knowledge about how vulnerable populations think about climate engineering. The goal of this manuscript is to bring the ethics literature on climate engineering into dialogue with emerging social science data documenting the perspectives of vulnerable populations. The results indicate some concerns among vulnerable populations may resemble those outlined by ethicists."
