Ferraro, Angus J.; et al. (2014): A risk-based framework for assessing the effectiveness of stratospheric aerosol geoengineering

Ferraro, Angus J.; Charlton-Perez, Andrew J.; Highwood, Eleanor J. (2014): A risk-based framework for assessing the effectiveness of stratospheric aerosol geoengineering. In PLoS ONE 9 (2), pp. e88849. DOI 10.1371/journal.pone.0088849 .

"We present a simple, intuitive risk-based framework for classifying these impacts according to whether geoengineering increases or decreases the risk of substantial climate change, with further classification by the level of existing risk from climate change from increasing carbon dioxide concentrations."
