Beckman, R.; et al. (2018): High seas governance. Gaps and challenges

Beckman, R.; McCreath, M.; Roach, A. (Hg.) (2018): High seas governance. Gaps and challenges. Leiden: Brill Nijhoff (Publications on ocean development, 86). DOI: https://doi.org/10.1163/9789004373303_004

"This chapter examines the legal framework for marine geoengineering, analysing the extent to which the modern law of the sea has responded to the gaps and challenges in the current regulatory framework. It will focus on adapting existing environmental and other principles within the framework of unclos to geoengineering, before examining the recent initiative under the 1996 London Protocol to develop a designated regime to regulate ocean fertilisation."

Decimals Fund: Solar Radiation Management Governance Initiative (SRMGI)

"Launched in April 2018, the DECIMALS Fund (Developing Country Impacts Modelling Analysis for SRM) is the world’s first international SRM modelling fund and the first exclusively for scientists from the Global South. From 2018 to 2020, the DECIMALS Fund will distribute more than $430,000 of grants to support Southern scientists as they research how solar radiation management geoengineering (SRM) could affect some of the world’s poorest countries and most climate-vulnerable regions."

The National: Scientists aim to dim the sun to tackle climate change

"Scientists are preparing to test a radical new way of tackling climate change by deliberately dimming the sun. A team of researchers from Harvard University plans to release a balloon into the skies over the southwest United States in the new year. Once it reaches an altitude of 20km, the balloon will release a chalky material to bounce the sun’s heat back into space. Only a tiny amount of material will be released, and the effects will be limited to a few square kilometres. Even so, the experiment has reignited concern about such “geoengineering” solutions to tackling climate change."
