Emmerling, Johannes; Tavoni, Massimo (2013): Geoengineering and abatement: a 'flat' relationship under uncertainty

Emmerling, Johannes; Tavoni, Massimo (2013): Geoengineering and abatement: a 'flat' relationship under uncertainty. Milano.

A paper from the Italian nonprofit research institute Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM). "This paper evaluates the role of Solar Radiation Management (SRM) on the optimal abatement path, focusing on the uncertainty about the effectiveness of SRM and the interaction with uncertain climate change response."

Vichi, M.; et al. (2013): Adjustment of the natural ocean carbon cycle to negative emission rates

Vichi, M.; Navarra, A.; Fogli, P. G. (2013): Adjustment of the natural ocean carbon cycle to negative emission rates. In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0677-0

On CDR and negative emissions. "Results show that both actions are anticipated to release the anthropogenic carbon stored in the surface ocean, effectively increasing the required removal effort."

Vuuren, Detlef P.; et al. (2013): The role of negative CO2 emissions for reaching 2 °C—insights from integrated assessment modelling. In: Climatic Change.

Vuuren, Detlef P.; Deetman, Sebastiaan; Vliet, Jasper; Berg, Maarten; Ruijven, Bas J.; Koelbl, Barbara (2013): The role of negative CO2 emissions for reaching 2 °C—insights from integrated assessment modelling. In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0680-5

"Given the importance and the uncertainty concerning BECCS [bio-energy with carbon capture and storage], we stress the importance of near-term assessments of its availability as today’s decisions has important consequences for climate change mitigation in the long run."

Kriegler, Elmar; et al. (2013): Is atmospheric carbon dioxide removal a game changer for climate change mitigation?

Kriegler, Elmar; Edenhofer, Ottmar; Reuster, Lena; Luderer, Gunnar; Klein, David (2013): Is atmospheric carbon dioxide removal a game changer for climate change mitigation? In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0681-4

"The ability to directly remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere allows the decoupling of emissions and emissions control in space and time. We ask the question whether this unique feature of carbon dioxide removal technologies fundamentally alters the dynamics of climate mitigation pathways."
