Pope, F. D.; et al. (2012): Stratospheric aerosol particles and solar-radiation management

Pope, F. D.; Braesicke, P.; Grainger, R. G.; Kalberer, M.; Watson, I. M.; Davidson, P. J.; Cox, R. A. (2012): Stratospheric aerosol particles and solar-radiation management. In: Nature Climate change.

Sulfur-SRM modelling study. "We show that aerosols with other compositions, such as minerals, could be used to dramatically increase the amount of light scatter achieved on a per mass basis, thereby reducing the particle mass required for injection."
