Kala, Jatin; Hirsch, Annette L. (2020): Could crop albedo modification reduce regional warming over Australia?

Kala, Jatin; Hirsch, Annette L. (2020): Could crop albedo modification reduce regional warming over Australia? In Weather and Climate Extremes 30, p. 100282. DOI: 10.1016/j.wace.2020.100282.

"We use a regional climate model at 10 km resolution, to show that crop albedo enhancement of up to 0.1 could reduce monthly mean daily maximum temperatures by −1.0 °C to −1.2 °C, and monthly highest maximum temperatures by up to −1.4 °C to −1.6 °C during the cropping season."

Mongin, Mathieu; et al. (2021): Reversing ocean acidification along the Great Barrier Reef using alkalinity injection

Mongin, Mathieu; Baird, Mark E.; Lenton, Andrew; Neill, Craig; Akl, John (2021): Reversing ocean acidification along the Great Barrier Reef using alkalinity injection. In Environ. Res. Lett. 16 (6), p. 64068. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/ac002d.

"In this study, we use a coupled hydrodynamic-biogeochemical model of the GBR and surrounding ocean to simulate artificial ocean alkalinisation (AOA) as a means to reverse the impact of global ocean acidification on GBR reefs."

Spence, Elspeth; et al. (2021): Exploring cross-national public support for the use of enhanced weathering as a land-based carbon dioxide removal strategy

Spence, Elspeth; Cox, Emily; Pidgeon, Nick (2021): Exploring cross-national public support for the use of enhanced weathering as a land-based carbon dioxide removal strategy. In Climatic Change 165 (1-2). DOI: 10.1007/s10584-021-03050-y.

"This study explores how public attitudes across three countries influence support towards terrestrial enhanced weathering, whereby silicate minerals are applied to agricultural land to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere."
