Oxford Geoengineering

„The Oxford Geoengineering Programme will use primary research to examine the engineering processes and associated risks of schemes to geoengineer the Earth’s climate in the context of these key scientific, ethical and governance questions. The Programme aims to establish Oxford as the pre-eminent centre in the United Kingdom and internationally for the integrated study of geoengineering.“

Bickel, Eric; Lane, Lee (2009): An Analysis of Climate Engineering as a Response to Climate Change. Copenhagen Consensus Center. Frederiksberg (Analysis Paper).

„This paper offers a preliminary and exploratory assessment of the potential benefits and costs of climate engineering (CE). We examine two families of CE technologies, solar radiation management (SRM) and air capture (AC), under three emissions control environments: no controls, optimal abatement, and limiting temperature change to 2°C.“

IMPLICC – Implications and risks of engineering solar radiation to limit climate change

IMPLICC addresses the call ”Implications and Risks of Novel Options to Limit Climate Change“ within the activity „Climatefiles/kei/media/bilder/P_7th-framework.PNG Change, Pollution and Risks” of the European Union’s framework-7 programme (FP7) for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2007-2013). The project is running since July 2009 under the cooperation of 5 higher educational and research institutions in France, Germany and Norway. The overall activities of the project are coordinated by the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg.
