Eufrasio-Espinosa, R.; et al. (2018): The UK Path and the Role of NETs to Achieve Decarbonisation

Eufrasio-Espinosa, R.; Lenny Koh, S. (2019): The UK Path and the Role of NETs to Achieve Decarbonisation. In: Narasinha Shurpali, Avinash Kumar Agarwal und V. K. Srivastava (Hg.): GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS. Challenges, technologies and solutions, Bd. 36. [S.l.]: Springer (Energy, Environment, and Sustainability), S. 87–109.

"The objective of this chapter is to present a review of the current state of the greenhouse gas emissions in the UK and describe what factors are influencing the recent decline of CO2 levels. We also provide a general overview of the strategies leading to the transition into a low-carbon economy and the sectors contributing to this process. Finally, we explore whether negative emissions technologies are ready for implementation in UK’s decarbonisation path."

Drewry, Darren T.; et al. (2014): Simultaneous improvement in productivity, water use, and albedo through crop structural modification

Drewry, Darren T.; Kumar, Praveen; Long, Stephen P. (2014): Simultaneous improvement in productivity, water use, and albedo through crop structural modification. In Glob Chang Biol. DOI 10.1111/gcb.12567.

"Spanning 15% of the global ice-free terrestrial surface, agricultural lands provide an immense and near-term opportunity to address climate change, food, and water security challenges. Through the computationally informed breeding of canopy structural traits away from those of modern cultivars, we show that solutions exist that increase productivity and water use efficiency, while increasing land-surface reflectivity to offset greenhouse gas warming."

Markus, Till; Ginzky, Harald (2011): Regulating Climate Engineering

Markus, Till; Ginzky, Harald (2011): Regulating Climate Engineering: Paradigmatic Aspects of the Regulation of Ocean Fertilization. In: Carbon and Climate Law Review (CCLR) (4), pp. 477–490.

"This article will assess to what extent legal concepts discussed, developed and adopted in the regulatory process under the London Convention and Protocol can provide useful ideas and concepts – and possibly even offer models – for the future regulation of other climate engineering technologies."
