Kleidon, A.; Renner, M. (2013): A simple explanation for the sensitivity of the hydrologic cycle to surface temperature and solar radiation and its implications for global climate change

Kleidon, A.; Renner, M. (2013): A simple explanation for the sensitivity of the hydrologic cycle to surface temperature and solar radiation and its implications for global climate change. In: Earth Syst. Dynam. 4 (2), S. 455–465. DOI: 10.5194/esd-4-455-2013.

"We illustrate an implication of this explanation for geoengineering, which aims to undo surface temperature differences by solar radiation management. Our results show that when such an intervention compensates surface warming, it cannot simultaneously compensate the changes in hydrologic cycling because of the differences in sensitivities for solar vs. greenhouse-induced surface warming."
