Dagon, Katherine; Schrag, Daniel P. (2016): Exploring the Effects of Solar Radiation Management on Water Cycling in a Coupled Land-Atmosphere Model

Dagon, Katherine; Schrag, Daniel P. (2016): Exploring the Effects of Solar Radiation Management on Water Cycling in a Coupled Land-Atmosphere Model. In J. Climate, pp. 160215105924000. DOI 10.1175/JCLI-D-15-0472.1.

"This paper examines the impact of SRM on the terrestrial hydrologic cycle using the Community Land Model, version 4, coupled to the Community Atmosphere Model, version 4, with reductions in solar radiation relative to simulations with present-day and elevated CO2 concentrations. There are significant global and regional impacts due to vegetation-climate interactions that are not compensated when reductions in total solar irradiance of 1%, 2%, and 3% are imposed on top of a doubling of present-day CO2 concentrations."

Carbon Brief: We need a global geoengineering watchdog, researchers say

"A new international organisation will be needed to help nations manage geoengineering efforts, new research predicts, because trying to deliberately alter the planet's climate raises a raft of tricky issues."

Talk/Lecture: Reinvent Climate Management

"During this roundtable we will face up to this extremely difficult problem and talk about how to Reinvent Climate Management. [...] This roundtable will be driven by Jamais Cascio, a Distinguished Fellow at the Institute for the Future in Palo Alto, who is author of Hacking the Earth: Understanding the Consequences of Geoengineering, and who is now at work on his second book."

Panel discussion: New Priority Program on the assessment of CE in Germany

03.06.2013, Berlin

A new Priority Program on the assessment of climate engineering is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG): „Climate Engineering: Risks, Challenges, Opportunities?“ (SPP 1689) – coordinated by Andreas Oschlies, GEOMAR, Kiel. Its first 3-year phase (2012-2015) is funded with about 5 Mio Euro. The kick-off meeting will take place in Berlin 3rd of June 2013.

Meadowcroft, James (2013): Exploring negative territory Carbon dioxide removal and climate policy initiatives

Meadowcroft, James (2013): Exploring negative territory Carbon dioxide removal and climate policy initiatives. In: Climatic Change 118 (1), pp. 137–149. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0684-1

"Over the last five years there has been increased scientific interest in the role carbon dioxide removal (CDR), or ‘negative carbon dioxide emissions’, might play in addressing anthropogenic climate change. [...] This article engages with these issues, considering the significance of CDR approaches for climate policy."

IMPLICC Final Symposium: The Atmospheric Science and Economics of Climate Engineering via Aerosol Injections

14. - 16.05.2012, Mainz/Germany

"In IMPLICC five groups from three countries are examining the atmospheric and economic aspects of CE via aerosol injections, either into the stratosphere, or into marine clouds. This symposium will focus on key results from IMPLICC, as well as from other projects focusing on CE via aerosol injections."
