World Bank: New Soil Carbon Methodology Approved

"The Verified Carbon Standard approved this first methodology on soil carbon, a new approach for sustainable agricultural land management (SALM) practices.  The methodology was developed by the World Bank for the Smallholder Agriculture Carbon Finance Project run by the non-governmental organization Vi Agroforestry in western Kenya.  The pilot, involving more than 60,000 smallholders who are farming 45,000 hectares of land, is run together with smallholder farmers and supported by the World Bank’s BioCarbon Fund."

Partanen, A.-I.; Kokkola, H. (2012): Direct and indirect effects of sea spray geoengineering and the role of injected particle size

Partanen, Antti-Ilari; Kokkola, Harri; Romakkaniemi, Sami; Kerminen, Veli-Matti; Lehtinen, Kari E. J.; Bergman, Tommi et al. (2012): Direct and indirect effects of sea spray geoengineering and the role of injected particle size. In: J. Geophys. Res 117 (D2).. doi:10.1029/2011JD016428 (final paper)

"The aerosol direct effect of sea spray geoengineering is not insignificant - Cloud modification was most efficient when the injected particles were small - There are large uncertainties in the efficiency of sea spray geoengineering"
