Work package 1

What is the comprehensive climate impact of specific carbon dioxide removal options?

We will extend previous work on forcing footprints of human activities to estimate climate forcing footprints of terrestrial Carbon Dioxid Removal (CDR) options as currently represented in policy-informing Integrated Assessment Models.

Harvesting the expertise within the OceanNETs project, we will then include marine CDR options in the analysis.

This project constitutes a novel compilation of information, that is currently emerging from the continued efforts in CDR research. But it goes beyond that: Here we will provide the fundamental knowledge that is needed to improve the representation of CDR measures in policy-informing scenario analysis.
