Periodic Report 2 - IMPLICC (Implications and risks of engineering solar radiation to limit climate change)

Project ID: 226567
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

This is the periodic report of the IMPLICC project, funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). IMPLICC aims to study the efficiency, side effects, and economical implications of proposed solar radiation management (SRM) techniques, because a global-scale manipulation of the radiative budget of the Earth applying SRM may allow a counterbalancing of the effects of continued green house gases (GHG) emissions on global temperature, but may also result in undesirable side effects. As described in the document this intermediate report on activities within IMPLICC includes first results from coordinated numerical simulations with different climate models, results of specific studies concerning the radiative effects from sulphur injections and from the manipulation of marine clouds, an overview on the work concerning economical implications of geoengineering, and an outlook on future activities and expected results.
