Xia, Lili; Nowack, Peer J.; Tilmes, Simone; Robock, Alan (2017): Impacts of stratospheric sulfate geoengineering on tropospheric ozone. In Atmos. Chem. Phys 17 (19), pp. 11913–11928. DOI: 10.5194/acp-17-11913-2017.
"Here, we examine the potential effects of stratospheric sulfate aerosols and solar insolation reduction on tropospheric ozone and ozone at Earth's surface. Ozone is a key air pollutant, which can produce respiratory diseases and crop damage. Using a version of the Community Earth System Model from the National Center for Atmospheric Research that includes comprehensive tropospheric and stratospheric chemistry, we model both stratospheric sulfur injection and solar irradiance reduction schemes, with the aim of achieving equal levels of surface cooling relative to the Representative Concentration Pathway 6.0 scenario."
