Moreno-Cruz, Juan B.; Keith, David W. (2012): Climate policy under uncertainty: a case for solar geoengineering

Moreno-Cruz, Juan B.; Keith, David W. (2012): Climate policy under uncertainty: a case for solar geoengineering. In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0487-4

This paper has been published as a working paper before. "We find that even modest reductions in uncertainty about the side-effects of SRM can reduce the overall costs of climate change in the order of 10%."

Bellamy, Rob; et al. (2012): Appraising Geoengineering

Bellamy, Rob; Chilvers, Jason; Vaughan Naomi E.; Lenton, Timothy M. (2012): Appraising Geoengineering. In: Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research - Working Paper (153), pp. 1–36.

Submitted and under review with WIREs Climate Change - "Appraisals of geoengineering are critically reviewed here for the first time using a systematic literature search and screen strategy. Substantial variability between different appraisals’ outputs originates from usually hidden framing effects relating to contextual and methodological choices."

Conley, Daniel J. (2012): Ecology: Save the Baltic Sea

Conley, Daniel J. (2012): Ecology: Save the Baltic Sea. In: Nature 486 (7404), pp. 463–464.

Not close climate engineering, but connected. "Several large-scale geoengineering interventions have been proposed as solutions to this problem [of the Baltic Sea]. [...] But they could also be dangerous."

Futter, M. N.; Klaminder, J.; et al. (2012): Uncertainty in silicate mineral weathering rate estimates

Futter, M. N.; Klaminder, J.; Lucas, R. W.; Laudon, H.; Köhler, S. J. (2012): Uncertainty in silicate mineral weathering rate estimates: source partitioning and policy implications. In: Environ. Res. Lett. 7 (2), pp. 24025. doi 10.1088/1748-9326/7/2/024025

"We show that within-site differences of several hundred per cent arise when different methods are used to estimate weathering rates, mainly as a result of uncertainties related to input data rather than conceptually different views of the weathering process."
