Hoffmann, Fabian; Feingold, Graham (2021): Cloud Microphysical Implications for Marine Cloud Brightening: The Importance of the Seeded Particle Size Distribution

Hoffmann, Fabian; Feingold, Graham (2021): Cloud Microphysical Implications for Marine Cloud Brightening: The Importance of the Seeded Particle Size Distribution. In Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences. DOI: 10.1175/JAS-D-21-0077.1.

"In this study, we apply a highly detailed Lagrangian cloud model, coupled to an idealized parcel model as well as a full three-dimensional large-eddy simulation model, to show that the choice of seeded particle size distribution is crucial to the success of MCB, and that its efficacy can be significantly reduced by undesirable microphysical processes."

Podcast: Daniele Visioni and Gideon Futerman discuss the Event Solar Geoengineering: Warnings from Scientists, Indigenous Peoples, Youth, and Climate Activists

"His research is currently focused on studying Sulfate Geoengineering, a form of climate engineering that aims to partially, temporarily, offset the effects of climate change by means of injecting sulfate precursors in the stratosphere in order to reflect a small part of the incoming solar radiation and thus reduce global temperatures."

Pasek, Anne; et al. (2021): Reflections on a hypothetical decentralized grassroots deployment solar geoengineering scenario

Pasek, Anne; Morrow, David; Lee, Walker; Felgenhauer, Tyler (2021): Reflections on a hypothetical decentralized grassroots deployment solar geoengineering scenario. In Futures, p. 102811. DOI: 10.1016/j.futures.2021.102811.

"This thought experiment—the subject of a scenario exercise at the Sixth International Geoengineering Governance Summer School—produced a range of critical reflections on international responses to such grassroots deployment as participant teams developed and critiqued governance proposals."
