Howarth, Candice; et al. 2020: “Effectively Communicating Climate Science beyond Academia: Harnessing the Heterogeneity of Climate Knowledge.”

Howarth, Candice, Laurie Parsons, and Harriet Thew. 2020: “Effectively Communicating Climate Science beyond Academia: Harnessing the Heterogeneity of Climate Knowledge.” One Earth 2 (4): 320–24. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.oneear.2020.04.001.

‌"This Primer discusses the heterogeneous manner in which climate change messaging is received by different audiences, how social scientific approaches could help to better tailor climate change messaging to this varied landscape, and how attempts to close this gap must consider the emotional and affective dimensions of climate messaging. We explore how the use of narratives can enhance effective climate science communication and emphasize the importance of evidence-based advocacy in the current era of global challenges, uncertainty, and post-truth."

Ferraro, Angus J. (2014): Atmospheric Responses to Geoengineering in the Stratosphere

Ferraro, Angus J. (2014): Atmospheric Responses to Geoengineering in the Stratosphere. Reading. DOI 10.6084/m9.figshare.1014284.

"The first part of this thesis quantifies the stratospheric temperature response to a range of size distributions of sulphate, titania, limestone and soot aerosol. [...] The second part of this thesis uses a global climate model to investigate the dynamical response of the troposphere and the stratosphere to the radiative perturbations introduced by geoengineering aerosol."
