Akbari, Hashem; Matthews, H. Damon (2012): Global cooling updates: Reflective roofs and pavements

Akbari, Hashem; Matthews, H. Damon (2012): Global cooling updates: Reflective roofs and pavements. In: Energy and Buildings, pp. 1–5.

"► Cool roofs save cooling-energy use in air conditioned buildings and improve comfort. ► Cool urban surfaces (roofs and cool pavements) mitigate summer urban heat islands. ► Cool urban surfaces (roofs and cool pavements) improve outdoor air quality and comfort. ► Cool roofs and cool pavements cool the globe. ► We review cool roof and cool pavement technologies, policies, and programs in the world."

Pringle, K. J.; Carslaw, K. S.; et al. (2012): A multi-model assessment of the efficacy of sea spray geoengineering

Pringle, K. J.; Carslaw, K. S.; Fan, T.; Mann, G.W; Hill, A.; Stier, P. et al. (2012): A multi-model assessment of the efficacy of sea spray geoengineering. In: Atmos. Chem. Phys. Discuss 12 (3), pp 7125–7166.

"Artificially increasing the albedo of marine clouds by the mechanical emission of sea spray aerosol has been proposed as a geoengineering technique to slow the warming caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gases. A previous global model study found that only modest increases and sometimes even decreases in cloud drop number (CDN) concentrations would result from plausible emission scenarios. Here we extend that work to examine the conditions under which decreases in CDN can occur, and use three independent global models to quantify maximum achievable CDN changes."
