MacMartin, Douglas G.; et al. (2013): Dynamics of the coupled human–climate system resulting from closed-loop control of solar geoengineering

MacMartin, Douglas G.; Kravitz, Ben; Keith, David W.; Jarvis, Andrew (2013): Dynamics of the coupled human–climate system resulting from closed-loop control of solar geoengineering. In: Clim Dyn.

"We use a box-diffusion dynamic model of the climate system to understand how changing the properties of the feedback control affect the emergent dynamics of this coupled human–climate system, and evaluate these predictions using the HadCM3L general circulation model."
