Taillardat, Pierre; et al. (2020): Climate change mitigation potential of wetlands and the cost-effectiveness of their restoration

Taillardat, Pierre; Thompson, Benjamin S.; Garneau, Michelle; Trottier, Karelle; Friess, Daniel A. (2020): Climate change mitigation potential of wetlands and the cost-effectiveness of their restoration. In Interface Focus. 10 (5), p. 20190129. DOI: 10.1098/rsfs.2019.0129.

"Here, we conducted a meta-analysis on wetland carbon dynamics to (i) determine their impact on climate using different metrics and time horizons, (ii) investigate the cost-effectiveness of wetland restoration for climate change mitigation, and (iii) discuss their suitability for inclusion in climate policy as negative emission technologies."

Dowell, Glen; et al. (2020): Rooting carbon dioxide removal research in the social sciences

Dowell, Glen; Niederdeppe, Jeff; Vanucchi, Jamie; Dogan, Timur; Donaghy, Kieran; Jacobson, Rory et al. (2020): Rooting carbon dioxide removal research in the social sciences. In Interface Focus. 10 (5), p. 20190138. DOI: 10.1098/rsfs.2019.0138.

"As the need for rapid, effective and successful CDR has only increased since that time, we argue that CDR researchers from across the spectrum must come together in ways that simultaneously address the technical, social, political, economic and cultural elements of CDR development, commercialization, adoption and diffusion if the academy is to have a material impact on climate change in the increasingly limited window we have to address it."

Jones, Andy; et al. (2020): North Atlantic Oscillation response in GeoMIP experiments G6solar and G6sulfur: why detailed modelling is needed for understanding regional implications of solar radiation management

Jones, Andy; Haywood, Jim M.; Jones, Anthony C.; Tilmes, Simone; Kravitz, Ben; Robock, Alan (2020): North Atlantic Oscillation response in GeoMIP experiments G6solar and G6sulfur: why detailed modelling is needed for understanding regional implications of solar radiation management. In Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. DOI: 10.5194/acp-2020-802. (in review)

"Proposed SRM schemes aim to increase planetary albedo to reflect more sunlight back to space and induce a cooling that acts to partially offset global warming. Under the auspices of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparion Project, we have performed model experiments whereby global temperature under the high forcing SSP5–8.5 scenario is reduced to follow that of the medium forcing SSP2–4.5 scenario."

C2G: Guest post: Can solar geoengineering be democratically governed?

"Some commentators argue that the potential use of solar geoengineering would pose serious challenges to democratic forms of government and governance. At the extreme, they have argued that solar geoengineering and democracy would be simply incompatible."

Robrecht, Sabine; et al. (2020): Potential of future stratospheric ozone loss in the mid-latitudes under climate change and sulfate geoengineering

Robrecht, Sabine; Vogel, Bärbel; Tilmes, Simone; Müller, Rolf (2020): Potential of future stratospheric ozone loss in the mid-latitudes under climate change and sulfate geoengineering. In Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. DOI: 10.5194/acp-2020-747.

"We investigate the likelihood for the occurrence of heterogeneous chlorine activation and its impact on ozone in the lowermost stratospheric mixing layer between tropospheric and stratospheric air above central North America (30.6–49.6° N, 72.25–124.75° W) in summer for conditions today, at the mid and at the end of the 21st century."
