New Blog: OLIVOA (Enhanced Olivine Weathering)

"OLIvOA is a research initiative investigating the use of enhanced weathering of the silicate mineral olivine against Ocean Acidification. Olivine weathering causes the seawater to become less acidic and increases its capacity to take up (more) carbon dioxide (CO2). OLIvOA 'headquarters' is currently located in Brazil, but collaborates with researchers from all over the world. The epicenter of OLIvOA research is (still) in Europe."

Frontiers Research Topic: ELSI Aspects of Geoengineering

"The goal of this ​Research Topic is to examine current and near-future efforts in geoengineering in light of Shelly’s admonitions not to interfere in nature: analyzing the non-trivial ethical, legal and social implications of our attempts to forestall the effects of decades of environmental neglect and misuse with a particular focus on the physical impact that these efforts might have on the planet, including on our arable land, our freshwater systems, and the atmosphere."

Project: Geoengineering the Southern Ocean? A transdisciplinary assessment

"This project will therefore involve a multi-faceted study of geoengineering and geoengineering governance, involving several phases of data collection, collation, analysis and dissemination. [...] The project will adopt a mixed-methods approach to data collection, involving such techniques as desktop studies, interviews with scientists, scientific translation and communication, public data-gathering through such activities as surveys (eg. SurveyMonkey), and standard legal and policy textual analysis."
