Hong, Yu; Moore, John C.; Jevrejeva, Svetlana; Ji, Duoying; Phipps, Steven J.; Lenton, Andrew et al. (2017): Impact of the GeoMIP G1 sunshade geoengineering experiment on the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation. In: Environ. Res. Lett. 12 (3). DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/aa5fb8

„We analyze the multi-earth system model responses of ocean temperatures and the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) under an idealized solar radiation management scenario (G1) from the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project. All models simulate warming of the northern North Atlantic relative to no geoengineering, despite geoengineering substantially offsetting the increases in mean global ocean temperatures. Increases in the temperature of the North Atlantic Ocean at the surface (~0.25 K) and at a depth of 500 m (~0.10 K) are mainly due to a 10 Wm−2 reduction of total heat flux from ocean to atmosphere.“
