The Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)
To evaluate the effects of stratospheric geoengineering with sulphate aerosols, we propose standard forcing scenarios to be applied to multiple climate models to compare their results and determineExpand

Benefits, risks, and costs of stratospheric geoengineering.
[1] Injecting sulfate aerosol precursors into the stratosphere has been suggested as a means of geoengineering to cool the planet and reduce global warming. The decision to implement such a schemeExpand

Geophysical limits to global wind power
Wind power is a near-zero-emissions source of energy. Although at present wind turbines are placed on the Earth’s surface, high-altitude winds offer greater possibilities for power generation. ThisExpand

An overview of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)
[1] The Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP) was designed to determine robust climate system model responses to solar geoengineering. GeoMIP currently consists of four standardizedExpand

Stratospheric ozone response to sulfate geoengineering: Results from the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)
Geoengineering with stratospheric sulfate aerosols has been proposed as a means of temporarily cooling the planet, alleviating some of the side effects of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. However, one ofExpand

Negligible climatic effects from the 2008 Okmok and Kasatochi volcanic eruptions
[1] We used a general circulation model of Earth's climate to conduct simulations of climate response to the July 12, 2008, eruption of Okmok volcano and the August 8, 2008, eruption of KasatochiExpand

A multi-model assessment of regional climate disparities caused by solar geoengineering
Global-scale solar geoengineering is the deliberate modification of the climate system to offset some amount of anthropogenic climate change by reducing the amount of incident solar radiation at theExpand

Geoengineering by stratospheric SO 2 injection: results from the Met Office HadGEM2 climate model and comparison with the Goddard Institute for Space Studies ModelE
Abstract. We examine the response of the Met Office Hadley Centre's HadGEM2-AO climate model to simulated geoengineering by continuous injection of SO2 into the lower stratosphere, and compare theExpand

Increasing water cycle extremes in California and in relation to ENSO cycle under global warming
Since the winter of 2013–2014, California has experienced its most severe drought in recorded history, causing statewide water stress, severe economic loss and an extraordinary increase in wildfires.Expand

The Impact of Abrupt Suspension of Solar Radiation Management (Termination Effect) in Experiment G2 of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)
[1] We have examined changes in climate which result from the sudden termination of geoengineering after 50 years of offsetting a 1% per annum increase in CO2 concentrations by a reduction of solarExpand
