Jones, Andy; et al. (2013): The impact of abrupt suspension of solar radiation management (termination effect) in experiment G2 of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)

Jones, Andy; Haywood, Jim M.; Alterskjaer, Kari; Boucher, Olivier; Cole, Jason N. S.; Curry, Charles L. et al. (2013): The impact of abrupt suspension of solar radiation management (termination effect) in experiment G2 of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP). In J. Geophys. Res. Atmos. 118 (17), pp. 9743–9752. DOI 10.1002/jgrd.50762.

"We have examined changes in climate which result from the sudden termination of geoengineering after 50 years of offsetting a 1% per annum increase in CO2 concentrations by a reduction of solar radiation, as simulated by 11 different climate models in experiment G2 of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project."

Akbari, Hashem; Matthews, H. Damon (2012): Global cooling updates: Reflective roofs and pavements

Akbari, Hashem; Matthews, H. Damon (2012): Global cooling updates: Reflective roofs and pavements. In: Energy and Buildings, pp. 1–5.

"► Cool roofs save cooling-energy use in air conditioned buildings and improve comfort. ► Cool urban surfaces (roofs and cool pavements) mitigate summer urban heat islands. ► Cool urban surfaces (roofs and cool pavements) improve outdoor air quality and comfort. ► Cool roofs and cool pavements cool the globe. ► We review cool roof and cool pavement technologies, policies, and programs in the world."
