Pitari, Giovanni; et al. (2014): Stratospheric Ozone Response to Sulfate Geoengineering: Results from the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)

Pitari, Giovanni; Aquila, Valentina; Kravitz, Ben; Robock, Alan; Watanabe, Shingo; Cionni, Irene et al. (2014): Stratospheric Ozone Response to Sulfate Geoengineering: Results from the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP). In J. Geophys. Res. Atmos., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2013JD020566.

"Here we present the effects that increased amounts of sulfate aerosol have on stratospheric meteorology and/or ozone concentrations, as simulated by two general circulation models and two coupled chemistry-climate models within the experiments G3 and G4 of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)."

Horton, Joshua B.; et al. (2013): Solar Geoengineering and the Problem of Liability

Horton, Joshua B.; Parker, Andrew; Keith, David W. (2013): Solar Geoengineering and the Problem of Liability (Geoengineering Our Climate? Working Paper and Opinion Article Series).

"The prospect of solar geoengineering, or methods of reducing incoming solar radiation in order to offset the effects of climate change, raises a number of significant governance challenges that are likely to be far more difficult to overcome than the technical barriers to development. Who decides when to use solar geoengineering? Who decides when to test it?"

environmental research web: Geoengineering the climate could reduce vital rains

"But trying to resolve the problem through “geoengineering” could result in monsoonal rains in North America, East Asia, and other regions dropping by 5-7 percent compared to preindustrial conditions. Globally, average precipitation could decrease by about 4.5 percent."
