The Oxford Geoengineering Programme has announced the results of a funding round designed to encourage research into different aspects of geoengineering. Three diverse projects will each receive a share of £60,000 to conduct studies into the feasibility of large-scale intervention in the Earth's natural systems to address climate change. The projects are:
- "Assessment of Cloud Modification Proposals for Geoengineering" will deliver a quantitative assessment of solar radiation management proposals through cloud modification. This project is led by Dr Philip Stier.
- "Locating Oxford Geoengineering" will focus on enhancing and consolidating Oxford's world-leading position on geoengineering governance. This project is led by Dr Peter Healey.
- "Engineering and Resource Constraints of CDR Schemes: Assessing The Little Details With Big Implications" which seeks to identify the resource limitations of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) schemes by employing chemical and process engineering techniques. This project is led by Dr Alex Lubansky.
