Outputs and Impact

GGR publications

The publications listed below are direct or indirect outputs from the Greenhouse Gas Removal research programme, with authorship including a GGR-supported researcher.  You can browse these by year: 2018, 2017. Some of these may have resulted from work initiated before the start of the programme, or supported through co-funding.  Most of these publications have been independently peer-reviewed and/or published in World-of-Science listed journals.  Those not subject to such scrutiny, but nevertheless considered worthy of inclusion, are given in italics.  These include international conference abstracts cited in Google Scholar and/or WoS, and ‘full-text’ conference papers. However, other conference abstracts and posters are not included here. Relevant media coverage can be browsed by year: 2018, 2017.

Information on print publication overrides that for online publication (e.g. Discussions version) of the same paper; however, the latter details are given if the former are currently lacking.
