Volodin, E. M.; Kostrykin, S. V.; Ryaboshapko, A. G. (2011): Simulation of climate change induced by injection of sulfur compounds into the stratosphere. In: Izv. Atmos. Ocean. Phys 47 (4), S. 430–438. DOI: 10.1134/S0001433811040116


"An atmosphere-ocean general circulation model including the atmospheric chemistry and carbon cycle was used to perform numerical experiments to simulate the consequences of geoengineering. Out of the five emission scenarios considered here, the scenario where the injection of sulfur compounds occurs near the equator at an altitude between 22 and 24 km can be considered the most efficient in the sense of a maximum decrease in globally averaged surface temperature. We consider the equilibrium distribution of the sulfate aerosol and changes in temperature at the Earth's surface and at different altitudes, in precipitation, in ozone concentration, and in primary plant productivity caused by geoengineering."
