Could Solar Geoengineering Prove Effective?

Geoengineering has been a hot topic of late and now comes a new study looking at the possibility of using solar geoengineering to counter the loss of Arctic sea ice by tailoring geoengineering by region and by need. A team of leading researchers developed a new computer model that promises to maximise the effectiveness of solar radiation management by mitigating its potential side effects and risks. The model was highlighted in a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

Solar geoengineering is easy to outline and harder to be specific about: in short, seed the atmosphere with particles that reflect light back into space and we can mitigate how much is reaching planetside.
