Tavoni, Massimo; et al. (2017): Challenges and Opportunities for Integrated Modeling of Climate Engineering

Tavoni, Massimo; Bosetti, Valentina; Shayegh, Soheil; Drouet, Laurent; Emmerling, Johannes; Fuss, Sabine et al. (2017): Challenges and Opportunities for Integrated Modeling of Climate Engineering. Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM). Milan (Nota di Lavoro, 38.2017).

"By reviewing the existing literature and reporting the views of experts, we identify research gaps and priorities for improving the integrated assessment of climate engineering. Results point to differentiated roles of CDR and SRM as complementary strategies to the traditional ones, as well as diverse challenges for an adequate representation in integrated assessment models. We identify potential synergies for model development which can help better represent mitigation and adaptation challenges, as well as climate engineering."

UCAR Atmos News: Turbocharging science. New supercomputer triples Earth system science capability with greater efficiency

"The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is launching operations this month of one of the world's most powerful and energy-efficient supercomputers, providing the nation with a major new tool to advance understanding of the atmospheric and related Earth system sciences. [...] An NCAR-led project is using Cheyenne's computing power to run an ensemble of climate engineering simulations to show how hypothetical sulfate injections could affect regional temperatures and precipitation."

Oschlies, A.; et al. (2016): Indicators and Metrics for the Assessment of Climate Engineering

Oschlies, A.; Held, H.; Keller, D.; Keller, K.; Mengis, N.; Quaas, M. et al. (2016): Indicators and Metrics for the Assessment of Climate Engineering. In Earth's Future. DOI 10.1002/2016EF000449

"We here propose that such an effort should be facilitated by a more decision-oriented approach and an iterative procedure in close interaction between academia, decision makers and stakeholders. Specifically, synergies and trade-offs between social objectives reflected by individual indicators, as well as decision-relevant uncertainties should be considered in the development of metrics, so that society can take informed decisions about climate policy measures under the impression of the options available, their likely effects and side effects, and the quality of the underlying knowledge base."

Keith, David W.; et al. (2016): Modeling the effects of climate engineering

Keith, David W.; Wagner, Gernot; Moreno-Cruz, Juan B. (2016): Modeling the effects of climate engineering. In Science 352 (6293), pp. 1526–1527. DOI 10.1126/science.aag1630

"SRM is an important part of the future climate policy research agenda, as illustrated by the latest National Academy of
Sciences report. Economists need to embrace research on SRM technologies, recognize their capacity to disrupt
the climate policy agenda, focus on understanding the new impacts and risks introduced, and integrate this new  understanding into models and policy design."

Dorr, Adam (2016): Technological change and climate scenarios

Dorr, Adam (2016): Technological change and climate scenarios. In Nature Climate change. DOI 10.1038/nclimate2981.

"Thecarbon and climate problem is a crisis today, regardless of what tomorrow may bring. Moreover, the risk of ‘mitigation
obstruction’ and complacency associated with the anticipation of geoengineering ‘techno-fixes’ remains a legitimate
concern."
