Kalidindi, Sirisha; et al. (2014): Modeling of solar radiation management: a comparison of simulations using reduced solar constant and stratospheric sulphate aerosols

Kalidindi, Sirisha; Bala, Govindasamy; Modak, Angshuman; Caldeira, Ken (2014): Modeling of solar radiation management: a comparison of simulations using reduced solar constant and stratospheric sulphate aerosols. In: Clim Dyn. DOI: 10.1007/s00382-014-2240-3.

"In this study, a global climate model is used to evaluate the differences in the climate response to SRM by uniform solar constant reduction and stratospheric aerosols."

Kravitz, Ben; et al. (2014): A multi-model assessment of regional climate disparities caused by solar geoengineering

Kravitz, Ben; MacMartin, Douglas G.; Robock, Alan; Rasch, Philip J.; Ricke, Katharine L.; Cole, Jason N S et al. (2014): A multi-model assessment of regional climate disparities caused by solar geoengineering. In: Environ. Res. Lett. 9 (7), S. 074013. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/9/7/074013.

"For the first time, we quantitatively evaluate the potential for regional disparities in a multi-model context using results from a model experiment that offsets the forcing from a quadrupling of CO2 via reduction in solar irradiance."
