      Bright, Ryan M.; Lund, Marianne Tronstad (Journal article, 2021)
      Management of Earth’s surface albedo is increasingly viewed as an important climate change mitigation strategy both on (Seneviratne et al., 2018) and off (Field et al., 2018; Kravitz et al., 2018) the land. Assessing the ...
    • Competing effects of aerosol reductions and circulation changes for future improvements in Beijing haze 

      Guo, Liang; Wilcox, Laura J.; Bollasina, Massimo; Turnock, Steven T.; Lund, Marianne Tronstad; Zhang, Lixia (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Despite local emission reductions, severe haze events remain a serious issue in Beijing. Previous studies have suggested that both greenhouse gas increases and aerosol decreases are likely to increase the frequency of ...
    • Influence of weather situation on non-CO2 aviation climate effects: The REACT4C climate change functions 

      Frömming, Christine; Grewe, Volker; Brinkop, Sabine; Jöckel, Patrick; Søvde, Ole Amund; Rosanka, Simon; Van Manen, Jesper; Matthes, Sigrun (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
