Madronich, S.; et al. (2018): Response of Surface Ultraviolet and Visible Radiation to Stratospheric SO2 Injections
Madronich, S.; Tilmes, S.; Kravitz, B.; MacMartin, D.; Richter, J. (2018): Response of Surface Ultraviolet and Visible Radiation to Stratospheric SO2 Injections. In: Atmosphere 9 (11), S. 432. DOI: 10.3390/atmos9110432.
"Climate modification by stratospheric SO2 injections, to form sulfate aerosols, may alter the spectral and angular distributions of the solar ultraviolet and visible radiation that reach the Earth’s surface, with potential consequences to environmental photobiology and photochemistry. We used modeling results from the CESM1(WACCM) stratospheric aerosol geoengineering large ensemble (GLENS) project, following the RCP8.5 emission scenario, and one geoengineering experiment with SO2 injections in the stratosphere, designed to keep surface temperatures at 2020 levels."
