Muri, Helene; Tjiputra, Jerry; Otterå, Odd Helge; Adakudlu, Muralidhar; Lauvset, Siv K.; Grini, Alf et al. (2018): Climate Response to Aerosol Geoengineering. A Multimethod Comparison. In: J. Climate 31 (16), S. 6319–6340. DOI: 10.1175/JCLI-D-17-0620.1.

"Considering the ambitious climate targets of the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to 2°C, with aspirations of even 1.5°C, questions arise on how to achieve this. Climate geoengineering has been proposed as a potential tool to minimize global harm from anthropogenic climate change. Here, an Earth system model is used to evaluate the climate response when transferring from a high CO2 forcing scenario, RCP8.5, to a middle-of-the-road forcing scenario, like RCP4.5, using aerosol geoengineering. Three different techniques are considered: stratospheric aerosol injections (SAI), marine sky brightening (MSB), and cirrus cloud thinning (CCT)."
