Can we test geoengineering?
(Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2011)
Solar radiation management (SRM), a form of geoengineering, might be used to offset some fraction of the anthropogenic radiative forcing of climate as a means to reduce climate change, but the risks and effectiveness of ...
Effectiveness of stratospheric solar-radiation management as a function of climate sensitivity
(Nature Publishing Group, 2011)
If implementation of proposals to engineer the climate through solar-radiation management (SRM) ever occurs, it is likely to be contingent on climate sensitivity. However, modelling studies examining the effectiveness of ...
Cost Analysis of Stratospheric Albedo Modification Delivery Systems
(IOP Publishing, 2012)
We perform engineering cost analyses of systems capable of delivering 1–5 million metric tonnes (Mt) of albedo modification material to altitudes of 18–30 km. The goal is to compare a range of delivery systems evaluated ...
Are global wind power resource estimates overstated?
(IOP Publishing, 2013)
Estimates of the global wind power resource over land range from 56 to 400 TW. Most estimates have implicitly assumed that extraction of wind energy does not alter large-scale winds enough to signiﬁcantly limit wind power ...
Climatic Impacts of Wind Power
(Elsevier BV, 2018-12)
Wind power can impact the climate by altering the atmospheric boundary layer, with at least 40 papers and 10 observational studies now linking wind power to climatic impacts. We make the first comparison between the climatic ...
