Solar Radiation Modification
Solar Radiation Modification (SRM), also known as Solar Radiation Management, Radiation Modification Measures or Solar Geoengineering, would aim to address a symptom of climate change by reflecting more sunlight back into space, or by allowing more infrared radiation from Earth to escape, in order to reduce the Earth’s temperature. It includes numerous proposed methods which differ significantly. None are ready for deployment. Solar Radiation Modification could not be a substitute for reducing emissions, or removing atmospheric CO2.

El el webinar presenta los principios de la inyección de aerosol estratosférico y el brillo de nubes marinas, dos de los enfoques principales de la modificación de la radiación solar. Durante la discusión, abordamos los posibles beneficios y riesgos de la MRS y los...
Introduction to SRM: Analysis of Potential Benefits & Risks in the Context of Latin America & the Caribbean
This webinar presents the principles of stratospheric aerosol injection and marine cloud brightening, two of the main solar radiation modification (SRM) approaches. During the discussion, we address the potential benefits and risks of SRM, their governance challenges...
Climate change poses huge threats to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, which may lead to profound environmental and socio-economic consequences in the region. In response to these risks, scientists are considering the viability of developing and deploying Marine Cloud...
In the interest of promoting global discussion about the need for governance of Solar Radiation Modification, C2G developed a set of icons representing these approaches, available to all to use freely.
