Yang, Huiyi; et al. (2016): Potential negative consequences of geoengineering on crop production. A study of Indian groundnut

Yang, Huiyi; Dobbie, Steven; Ramirez-Villegas, Julian; Feng, Kuishuang; Challinor, Andrew J.; Chen, Bing et al. (2016): Potential negative consequences of geoengineering on crop production. A study of Indian groundnut. In Geophys. Res. Lett. DOI 10.1002/2016GL071209.

"A few case studies suggest that certain crops are likely to benefit from solar dimming geoengineering, yet we show geoengineering is projected to have detrimental effects for groundnut. Using an ensemble of crop-climate model simulations, we illustrate that groundnut yields in India undergo a statistically significant decrease of up to 20 % as a result of solar dimming geoengineering relative to RCP4.5."

Parkes, B.; et al. (2015): Crop failure rates in a geoengineered climate: impact of climate change and marine cloud brightening

Parkes, B.; Challinor, A.; Nicklin, K. (2015): Crop failure rates in a geoengineered climate: impact of climate change and marine cloud brightening. In Environ. Res. Lett. 10 (8), p. 084003–84003. DOI 10.1088/1748-9326/10/8/084003.

"We investigate the impact of a future climate and a potential geoengineering scheme on the number of crop failures in two regions, Northeastern China and West Africa. Climate change associated with a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide increases the number of crop failures in Northeastern China while reducing the number of crop failures in West Africa"
