McCormack, Caitlin G.; et al. (2016): Key impacts of climate engineering on biodiversity and ecosystems, with priorities for future research

McCormack, Caitlin G.; Born, Wanda; Irvine, Peter J.; Achterberg, Eric P.; Amano, Tatsuya; Ardron, Jeff et al. (2016): Key impacts of climate engineering on biodiversity and ecosystems, with priorities for future research. In Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences, pp. 1–26. DOI 10.1080/1943815X.2016.1159578.

"A literature review was carried out to identify details of the potential ecological effects of climate engineering techniques. A group of biodiversity and environmental change researchers then employed a modified Delphi expert consultation technique to evaluate this evidence and prioritize the effects based on the relative importance of, and scientific understanding about, their biodiversity and ecosystem consequences."

Vuuren, Detlef P.; Stehfest, Elke (2013): If climate action becomes urgent: the importance of response times for various climate strategies

Vuuren, Detlef P.; Stehfest, Elke (2013): If climate action becomes urgent: the importance of response times for various climate strategies. In Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-013-0769-5.

"A key question for climate policy in general, but even more in the case a rapid response is needed, is: what are the characteristic response times of the response options, such as rapid mitigation or solar radiation management (SRM)?"
