Abstract

Climate Engineering (CE), defined as the deliberate intervention in the Earth’s climate system in large scale to alleviate global warming, has been discussed as an important option to counter climate change challenges. In this thesis, I conducted five assessments on some specific CE technologies using the University of Victoria Earth System Climate Model (UVic_ESCM). Each individual assessment investigated the climate responses when particular CE technologies were applied under high CO2 emission scenarios from the year 2020 to 2099. The main aim of those assessments is to improve the understanding of CE technologies regarding their global warming offset efficacy, environmental side effects, simulation uncertainties, and extended usages potentially.
