Boucher, Olivier; et al. (2013): Rethinking climate engineering categorization in the context of climate change mitigation and adaptation

Boucher, Olivier; Forster, Piers M.; Gruber, Nicolas; Ha-Duong, Minh; Lawrence, Mark G.; Lenton, Timothy M. et al. (2013): Rethinking climate engineering categorization in the context of climate change mitigation and adaptation. In WIREs Clim Change, pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/wcc.261.

"We propose a new and more inclusive categorization into five different classes: anthropogenic emissions reductions (AER), territorial or domestic removal of atmospheric CO2 and other greenhouse gases (D‐GGR), trans‐territorial removal of atmospheric CO2 and other greenhouse gases (T‐GGR), regional to planetary targeted climate modification (TCM), and climate change adaptation measures (including local targeted climate and environmental modification, abbreviated CCAM)."
