Abstract

By deliberately intervening in Earth-s radiation budget, climate engineering (or geoengineering) could reduce some of the impacts of climate change. Possible methods include (but are not limited to) stratospheric aerosol addition or marine cloud brightening, both of which would reflect some sunlight back to space, or cirrus cloud thinning to increase outgoing longwave radiation. This conference focuses on better understanding the processes and impacts associated with radiation management. This includes processes specific to individual methods, the projected climate response and its uncertainties, and the impacts, including those in the developing world, as well as the engineering aspects and the design of research to address risk.
