Workshop: Low Environmental Impact SRM Experiments

07.-08. September 2016, Potsdam / Germany

"The workshop "Low Environmental Impact SRM Experiments" (LEISE) will seek to inform future conversations about SRM research. It will bring together roughly 20 scientists and engineers with expertise in a range of topics related to different proposed SRM techniques. Working in small, interdisciplinary groups, they will propose and work up descriptions of potentially informative SRM experiments that they expect would have negligible environmental impacts."

Event: A Machine For Making The Future

12. September 2016, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla / USA

"A Machine For Making The Future brings together experimentalists to work in interdisciplinary groups on proposals for experiments on the material and the imaginary of the air, atmosphere and the climate. The event is a mirror of a workshop on Low Environmental Impact Climate Engineering Experiments held at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam on September 7-8, 2016."
