Ferraro, Angus J.; et al. (2014): Weakened tropical circulation and reduced precipitation in response to geoengineering

Ferraro, Angus J.; Highwood, Eleanor J.; Charlton-Perez, Andrew J. (2014): Weakened tropical circulation and reduced precipitation in response to geoengineering. In Environ. Res. Lett. 9 (1), p. 14001–14001. DOI 10.1088/1748-9326/9/1/014001.

"Here, climate model simulations are used to examine the effect of geoengineering on the tropical overturning circulation. The strength of the circulation is related to the atmospheric static stability and has implications for tropical rainfall."
