Bewick, R.; Sanchez, J.P; McInnes, C.R (2012): Gravitationally bound geoengineering dust shade at the inner Lagrange point

Bewick, R.; Sanchez, J.P; McInnes, C.R (2012): Gravitationally bound geoengineering dust shade at the inner Lagrange point. In: Advances in Space Research 50 (10), pp. 1405–1410. DOI 10.1016/j.asr.2012.07.008

"This paper presents a novel method of space-based geoengineering which uses the mass of a captured near Earth asteroid to gravitationally anchor a cloud of unprocessed dust in the vicinity of the L1 position to reduce the level of solar insolation at Earth."
