Angus Ferraros Blog: Stratospheric aerosol geoengineering and the polar vortex

Blog entry to Ferraro, A. J.; et al. (2014). “Geoengineering by reducing the amount of solar radiation the Earth absorbs has become a hot topic in the last few years. Of all the impacts geoengineering might have on our climate, why on earth should we care about what goes on in the stratosphere, 10 kilometres above our heads? It turns out what goes on up there has a substantial impact on what goes on down here.”
