Coral bleaching under unconventional scenarios of climate warming and ocean acidification
Description: Here researchers analyse the potential for geoengineering, through stratospheric aerosol-based solar radiation management (SRM), to reduce the extent of global coral bleaching relative to ambitious climate mitigation. Exploring the common criticism of geoengineering-that ocean acidification and its impacts will continue unabated-they focus on the sensitivity of results to the aragonite saturation state dependence of bleaching.
