Schmidt, H.; Alterskjær, K.; et al. (2012): Solar irradiance reduction to counteract radiative forcing from a quadrupling of CO2

Schmidt, H.; Alterskjær, K.; Bou Karam, D.; Boucher, O.; Jones, A.; Kristjánsson, J. E. et al. (2012): Solar irradiance reduction to counteract radiative forcing from a quadrupling of CO2: climate responses simulated by four earth system models. In: Earth Syst. Dynam. 3 (1), pp. 63–78. doi:10.5194/esd-3-63-2012

"In this study we compare the response of four state-of-the-art Earth system models to climate engineering under scenario G1 of two model intercomparison projects: GeoMIP (Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project) and IMPLICC (EU project "Implications and risks of engineering solar radiation to limit climate change"). [...] Precipitation responses are, however, in many regions of comparable magnitude but globally of opposite sign."
